I like it even more with the promise of afternoon tea on a Sunday afternoon in a Relais & Chateaux Hotel! The Gilpin Lodge afternoon tea is a very traditional affair served in the wonderfully comfy yet stylish lounge - this really is an upmarket English country house hotel!

The salmon mousse served with brioche fingers was divine and the finger sandwiches with traditional fillings, including melt-in-the-mouth smoked salmon, were served with hand-cooked crisps.

We shall return (very soon, I hope!) for dinner and preferably stay for the weekend! The staff are so delightful - professional and friendly (every member of staff who walked by greeted us - from the moment we made our way across the car park!)
- booking in advance
- exploring the beautiful English Lake District
