My boyfriend and I stayed here recently for a trip to the Lake District, and we absolutely loved our stay. We stayed in the deluxe four poster room. The room was beautifully decorated and had an exquisite ensuite bathroom with a large bathtub. Everything in the room was very clean and arranged nicely. The staff was very friendly and accommodating,...

We actually stayed at The Knoll last Easter and I have just realised I didn't write a review then, well that was a mistake as I should have told everyone what a beautiful place it really is! We stayed in the Retreat and what a retreat it truly is! Perfect location, people, food, this place had it all. Beautiful in...

The Knoll is one of my favourite places to visit. We try to visit at least once per year & I have been visiting her for around 10yrs now (ish). Jen, Mo, Den, Ali all bring their own unique charm to the Knoll & cannot do enough to make the stay as carefree as possible even recalling likes from previous...

Gorgeous stay - Denise was super helpful, and I had read on Happy Cow that if you send ahead, they could arrange non-dairy milks for breakfast, which was incredible helpful. Thank you for a wonderful stay! Room rates are VERY reasonable for the area and for how lovely the place is.

Decided on a last minute break to the Lakes. Booked the four poster bedroom and it is excellent. Big comfy bed, plenty of toiletries, excellent tea tray with the big plus point quality biscuits and mints. We opted to stay in The Knoll for our evening meal instead of walking to the local pub. If you stop at the Knoll...

We have just returned from a weekend away where we stayed at the knoll , all the good comments I red earlier in the week do not do this beautiful country house justice. From the ladies running it, to the beautiful clean stylish rooms and the beautiful breakfast, its a must. You are 2 mins from the steam train or...

We have recently returned from a week in The Lake District, we were lucky enough to have stayed at The Knoll, we booked The Retreat and we really couldn't have wished for anything better. The Retreat is the self contained apartment attached to the main hotel and its absolutely delightful, its cosy, warm, very spacious and extremely well appointed and...

Great food, a lovey big bath and four poster bed, lived up to every expectation. Landlady was very welcoming and made friends with other happy returning customers. Only drawback was the wifi in the room was none existent,other than that, I would definitely recommend. Hope to go again soon x

A great anniversary weekend in The Retreat @ The Knoll. This self-contained apartment had everything to make for a wonderful weekend including a hot tub and wood burner. A great balance between self-catering and hotel service. We were able to choose between breakfast in the dining room or in our lounge. Denise and Jen did a great job. As we...

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
