  Lake Road - LA22 0ER Ambleside - Windermere, United Kingdom View Map

If you want to unwind in tranquil surroundings, for a special occasion, a weekend break or just to spend some time in this beautiful location - this is the place to stay. Secluded, yet close by Windermere village and Bowness Bay to give you the best of both worlds.With Windermere Golf Club virtually on our doorstep and free membership of the Low Wood Leisure Club as well as a host of local attractions and walks and the opportunity to try clay pigeon shooting, archery or learning to smoke (behind the bike sheds!) in our own woodland.
We are delighted to welcome you to the the Wild Boar Inn, Grill & Smokehouse. A great new dining experience with our all new Grill & Smokehouse, and a wide range of bedroom accommodation from comfortable classic country style through to sheer indulgent luxury.Set in the ancient beauty of the Gilpin Valley, this Coaching Inn takes its name from the local legend of Sir Richard de Gilpin who bravely fought and killed a particularly ferocious wild boar close by. However its fame these days has much more to do with the warmest of welcomes and standard of service complemented by our new, individually designed rooms, and the new Grill & Smokehouse and open kitchen offering more theatre to the overall dining experience. Head Chef Marc Sanders will proudly continue his commitment to the best locally produced seasonal ingredients. Indeed The Wild Boar has a very special quality that is often best experienced whilst relaxing by the open fire.
