As well as promoting itself as a Foodie Destination, Gilpin Hotel & Lake House has also opened the doors of its new Spa Space at Gilpin Hotel, ensuring that both properties have their own spa offerings, in addition to the spa suites available.
The new Spa Space has been specially created to ensure a calming and tranquil flow through the whole space, creating a sensory journey with naturally scented and textured wall coverings.
A natural indoor/outdoor feel flows throughout as guests enter to an open bright meadow scene leading to a cool dark impression of woodland in the textured treatment rooms, complete with natural stone in the steam and shower rooms. Outside sit two hot tubs nestled in Garden Arwen and created with the roots and stumps which fell during Storm Arwen. Here, a variety of woodland grasses reflect the floor, with woodland ferns to the north and sun-loving sedums to the south.
Gilpin has embraced local producers and uses PURE LAKES products, a husband and wife team based in the heart of the Lake District, alongside ESPA holistic products.
Treatments at the spa include an ESPA Gilpin Signature Experience, Hot Stone Reviver and Indian Head Massage, as well as a specially created PURE LAKES Walkers Ritual – a treatment designed to relax and soothe the legs and feet.
The new Spa Space is housed at the Hotel, alongside which sits 14 individually styled boutique guest rooms and suites, as well as two of the property’s restaurants, Gilpin Spice (Aakash Ohol) and recently renamed SOURCE run by executive chef Ollie Bridgwater which has just been awarded a coveted Michelin star.
The grounds are also home to six large open-plan Garden Suites, five Spa Lodges and five Spa Suites. A mile away sits the 6-bedroomed Lake House with its own spa and Knipe Grill at Gilpin Lake House, which has recently opened under coal chef Tom ‘Westy’ Westerland.
Spa treatments start from £75; Classic bedrooms start from £220 per room per night.
We plan to visit the site real soon, so we can give you our thoughts and opinions, so keep those eyes peeled.
