The Wild Boar is one of the Lake District’s finest and oldest Windermere hotels. You’ll be welcomed with friendly faces, traditional wood beams, individually styled rooms and a warming open fire. This country inn is bursting with character and offers plenty of ‘cosy corners’.
The inn adopts its name from the local legend of Sir Richard de Gilpin, who courageously fought and killed a fierce wild boar. Set amongst the picturesque Gilpin Valley, this is the perfect retreat for couples, families and especially dog owners.
Head chef Dylan Evans presents his passion for aromatic flavours, he has designed a menu which pairs classic favourites with an international twist. Dishes are popular among locals and guests alike. Dylan takes much inspiration from his time spent in the Middle East and his personal connection to Italy. He prides himself on creating colourful, flavoursome dishes to excite your palette. The Wild Boar is also well-known for its Alternative Afternoon Tea which changes seasonally but boasts favourites such as pork pies, Yorkshire puddings filled with roast beef and pork scratchings. In the bar, try a range of house-brewed ales from ‘Mad Pig’ to ‘Blonde Boar’.
Stay in one of 34 individually designed rooms which combine traditional style with contemporary touches, various rooms boast views over the fells, beautiful copper baths or wood burning stoves; all rooms have LCD TVs and luxurious beds.
Whether a resident or a day guest, take a stroll through 72 acres of private woodland, situated behind the Inn, and explore the stunning scenery. The woods host our own hidden art trail which highlight the best places to spot local wildlife.
