About Us

Set in the stunning Lake District National Park, The Gateway is an exquisite hotel, restaurant and bar  which is open all year round. Often described as 'the friendliest eatery for miles' we have built a reputation for fantastic food, great hospitality and unforgettable stays. 

Originally built as a private country house in the 1800s, before being transformed into a hostelry and later a public house, The Gateway has always held a majestic and imposing position in the Lake District countryside.

The business was acquired by local directors Josh Macaulay and Chris Moss in 2020 as part of the Westmorland Hospitality group and now provides fine dining, alfresco drinking and accommodation. 

"We have a vision to create the most amazing hospitality venues that everyone can enjoy. The Gateway fits perfectly with that vision and is the most premium and luxurious offer of all our venues. With its beautiful surroundings, luxury rooms, fine dining restaurant, bar, terrace and grounds The Gateway is at the leading edge of UK hospitality"

Josh Macaulay, Director
