We took our dog with us to this pet friendly hotel.
We had never took a dog to a hotel before but our stay was brilliant.
Nothing is too much trouble for the staff.
The woods at the back of the hotel are lovely to walk through.

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 proud to be a member of The Great Inns of Britain, an exclusive collection of 21 independent historic inns, all sharing a passion for traditional hospitality, excellent customer service and seasonal menus focused around fresh, local produce.
