A tranquil Lake District winter stay at a cosy country inn near Lake Windermere, with its own smokehouse and brewhouse – includes breakfast and more

Nestled among 72 acres of ancient woodland, The Wild Boar is a charming country inn located in the tranquil Gilpin Valley, a few miles from Lake Windermere – the gateway to the Lake District. With open log fires and rustic-chic interiors, this bolthole is the perfect place to escape urban living and hole up for some much-needed rest and respite.

Spend your days taking long, rambling walks through the pretty trails carving through the surrounding woods, or venture to the rugged fells of the Lake District National Park. Later, retreat to The Grill & Smokehouse, a cosy haunt with oak beams and candlelit wooden tables – and excellent food, making it a hit with locals and guests alike.

Feast on hearty rustic dishes rustled up using local, seasonal ingredients in the open kitchen (share a smoked platter if you’re feeling hungry), before nabbing a seat by the roaring fire to linger over post-dinner drinks – beer lovers will be in their element with the on-site microbrewery. Throw in 34 elegantly styled rooms in a soothing palette of creams and bronzes, accented with one-off antiques and country-chic furnishings – and it’s little wonder The Wild Boar Inn was named one of the Best Hotels in The Lake District by The Telegraph in 2016.

Good to know

Head chef Miroslav Likus takes the helm in the open kitchen at The Wild Boar’s rustic-chic restaurant, using the bounty of Lakeland’s natural larder to create traditional country-style dishes – think pan-seared scallops with crispy smoked pancetta, Morecambe Bay shrimp drizzled in garlic butter, and the finest sirloin steak smoked in-house.


Ringed by 72 acres of beautiful woodland, The Wild Boar is set in the tranquil Gilpin Valley, in the heart of the Lake District. The hotel is three miles from Lake Windermere, while Keswick and Castlerigg Stone Circle are a 45-minute drive away.
