We stayed in the retreat lovely and relaxing, the hot tub was a real treat after hiking all day, lovely setting with walks around woodland on your doorstep, sort walk from lakeside ferry dock and aquarium, would highly recommend the cheese platter, thanks for a relaxing stay

My wife and I stayed two nights at The Knoll, on arrival we were greeted by Moira who made us feel very much at home and welcome. Our room (3) was superb, beautifully decorated and spotless, the ensuite was the same. We ate at the Lakeside Hotel (10 min walk) and had a generous discount as we were staying at... More

<y partner and I arrived at The Knoll on Saturday (11th July) for a well-earned 3 night stay at The Knoll. We originally were only staying for Sun & Mon night, but hadn't realised that they didn't serve an evening meal on those nights, therefore extended our stay to include Saturday, so that we didn't need to find anywhere else...

Firstly can I thank you for your kind comments in our visitors book and on check out to one of our team. It's such a pity you didn't mention any of the issues you raised in your review to us personally. The Knoll although small, has someone on duty 24/7 (usually me, the owner) to deal with any difficulties or... More

The perfect B&B for a get-away in the lakes over Easter. The ladies who run it were fantastic, so friendly and welcoming! We started as we meant to go on - not long after the long morning driving up from London we were out hiking around the nearby lake (after a quick debrief on the route from the owners!), before...

The Knoll will leave you speechless! We've been there 3 times, and I will always go back when in the Lakes. This place is magical, clean, tranquil and the hospitality out of this world! The evening dinner is amazing and the breakfast as well. Jen is a wondefull hostess and her guesthouse pristine!

This guest house earned every star it received in the past! From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed in the beautiful surroundings. The rooms are well equipped and furnished. It is not necessary to look for any place to eat, as the proprietor is a fantastic chef! We decided earlier in the afternoon what to eat during the 3... More

The dining room was pristine and relaxing and breakfast cooked to order. The food was delicious and Jen and the team brilliant. Would love to come and... More

A last minute decision to spend a night away led us to this excellent bed and breakfast. Accommodation, hospitality and meals were first class. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Well worth a visit.
