The Wild Boar is one of the Lake District’s finest and oldest Windermere hotels.
Set amongst the beauty of the ancient Gilpin Valley, it boasts an exceptional standard of service within exquisite traditional interiors and a warming, friendly atmosphere.
'The Wild Boar is a wonderful experience - a real rarity in the hotel business; providing excellent customer service with old-fashioned courtesy, all wrapped-up in a gorgeously historic building in a truly beautiful setting.'
Andrew Lewis (August 2019)
The hotel takes its namesake from the local legend of Sir Richard de Gilpin, who bravely fought and killed a particularly ferocious wild boar.
However, these days the Wild Boar Hotel is known more for its warm welcomes, roaring log fires and seasonal food and drink from its Grill & Smokehouse open kitchen.
The Wild Boar is proud to be a member of The Great Inns of Britain, a unique collection of 21 leading independent historic inns, all sharing a passion for traditional hospitality, excellent customer service and seasonal menus focused around fresh, local produce.
The Wild Boar offers hotel guests a number of things to see and do.
