Gilpin Lodge – Windermere


Gilpin Hotel & Lake House is one of the finest luxury Lake District hotels, situated close to Lake Windermere. The original Georgian country house built was in 1901 but has been extensively refurbished since.

The hotel has been extended over the years to the main house but also garden suite accommodation together with laundry and staff block all with separate boilerplant.

The brief was to provide a biomass boiler plantroom and district heating pipework to serve each boiler plant fed via underground pipework with minimal disruption to the hotels appearance. The system was provided with an Ariterm Arimax Bio 300kW boiler which was provided with a 250kW oil fired back-up boiler all in accordance with the renewable heat incentive regulations for metering.
