Stayed friday to monday end of may'22 I can not recommend this place enough, they have thought of everything. Loved the little touches of vases of beautiful flowers, had a hamper on arrival. The pool area was amazing with the jacuzzi and summer house. Will definitely be going back next year!

The rules sound tough but when you get there you understand and appreciate. Help was always on hand in the smallest problem. An exciting home and facilities for fun. We had a very memorable and wonderful family holiday and can recommend GILPIN HOUSE. We would return.

Gilpin House is a beautiful 5* accommodation. We were fortunate enough to stay during a UK heatwave so we were able to make the most of the pool area. Plenty of room everywhere with alfresco dining and bbq. We didn't venture from the house too often as we loved being there but plenty to do in the surrounding areas and lots of pubs and dining opportRead moreunities. The owner was really helpful and responsive. Would love to return. Hide
