We stayed at The Knoll for a post-Christmas break having searched through many hotel listings to find something special - we certainly found the right place! The hotel was comfortable. Jen, Denise and all other staff made us very welcome and the food was exceptional. All in all the stay was perfect in every respect. We will definitely be back!

We have just returned for an amazing weekend at the Knoll. We stayed in the fourposter room - huge comfortable bed, luxurious finishing touches and a lovely deep bath. We missed dinner on the Friday night due to a delayed journey up. We rang ahead to let them know we wouldn't make it and they instead made us a sumptuous... More

My boyfriend and I have just returned from a three night stay in The Retreat at The Knoll. It was absolutely fantastic - a lovely initial welcome from Jen and great service throughout our stay.

We stayed in The Retreat (a little apartment attached to the main house) 20-22 September. We had previously stayed at The Knoll and only had fantastic memories so we were really looking forward to our return stay. We were not disappointed. We arrived a little bit early (about 1pm). Unfortunately, due to the previous guests stealing the soft furnishings and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This tranquil country retreat stands in beautiful grounds at the southern tip of Lake Windermere, surrounded by spectacular woodland. The unwinding begins the moment you arrive. Following a warm welcome, you'll be shown to one of eight beautifully appointed bedrooms, each with its own luxurious en suite bathroom. We've thought of everything, from little treats like complementary toiletries to more practical concerns like hair dryers, Satellite TV, DVD and iPod dock, internet access and your own hospitality tray. We also offer complimentary use of the local four star hotel's health and fitness spa.After that, it's up to you. Our pleasant gardens suggest drinks on the lawn or a lovely outdoor eating experience. Open log fires and a cosy drawing room invite you to curl up and relax. If it weren't for our superb location, you'd never want to go out - but the Lake District beckons, and it's all just waiting to be explored. Need a last minute gift? We can provide vouchers for future stays at the Knoll. Call to book now!! ... more   less
