SOME OF THE COUNTRY’S TOP MICHELIN CHEFS will join the Save Windermere campaign for a week long culinary event to raise funds for the protection of Windermere.

The Lake District boasts a remarkable number of Michelin-starred chefs, surpassing any other region in the country outside London.

Over 6 nights, from 11-16 September 2023, leading chefs will cook up culinary delights in an intimate tented setting overlooking the lake. Spearheaded by Barney Cunliffe of Gilpin Hotel & Lake House, each evening of the week will feature different chefs and restaurants, all dedicated to using local, sustainable and nature-friendly ingredients, sourced from our incredible farmers.

The money raised from the week-long event will be ring-fenced to support the Save Windermere campaign’s new data collection initiatives, their increasingly successful Parliamentary lobbying, and the development of innovative legislation to safeguard our lake for both the present and future generations. 

Each table seats 10, giving a capacity for 100 guests to attend each night. To find out more about the campaign or to book tickets for any of the events, go to the Save Windermere website


Our prize is for two people to attend the Michelin-starred SOURCE at Gilpin Hotel night with Ollie Bridgwater, which includes a seven-course tasting menu, wine pairing and champagne reception at Gossel Ridding in Windermere on Wednesday 13th September.
