New owners to turn 3-star Cumbrian hotel into 5-star venue

Gilsland Hall Hotel in Cumbria has been purchased by Stratsmore Holdings and will be operated by Monday Hospitality Group and its new country house hotel brand, Black Book Hotels.

This autumn, the 3-star property will undergo a complete renovation, transforming it into a luxury 5-star country house hotel by next spring. The new hotel will offer luxury suites and family rooms with patios, ideal for those with pets.

There will be an array of unique guest experiences, amenities, F&B offerings, wedding and event spaces, including in house screening room and iconic luxury spa facilities, making it the ideal retreat for couples, groups of friends, and family gatherings.

In the meantime, the hotel in its existing incarnation is available for affordable staycations this summer for couples, friends, families and single travellers (and their dogs) looking for a base from which to explore the region. Room rates currently start at only £80pp for 3 course dinner, bed and breakfast (based on two sharing).

Gilsland Hall sits proudly in 140 acres of landscaped garden and natural woodland, an idyllic rural location with spectacular views over the Cumbrian countryside. Guests can explore, spot wildlife, walk, or just relax, and your dog is welcome to join you, free of charge.

The hotel suits those in search of the ultimate outdoor staycation this summer, and provides a base from which to explore the UNESCO World Heritage sites along Hadrian’s Wall, and visiting Carlisle, Gretna, Hexham and Newcastle.

The current hotel comprises 60 en-suite bedrooms, with free wi-fi. The Orangery restaurant serves a hearty breakfast buffet and 3-course dinner, featuring wholesome, locally sourced ingredients.

The Conservatory, with garden terrace, offers a warm welcome to residents and non-residents alike with all day dining and a renowned afternoon tea.
