We received a lovely warm welcome at this beautiful large (edwardian?) house set in very pretty quiet surroundings. This was a little more out of the way than we initially thought but actually would be great for walkers or the aquarium and steam train is just a 5 min walk away, however we had to drive out again that evening...

We stayed at the Knoll for a weekend break to attend a nearby wedding. The welcome we received was friendly and warm and this extended throughout our stay. The ambience of the whole building is homely, modern yet vintage with a lovely comfy lounge and attention to detail evident everywhere. Our room wasn't the biggest (room 1) but it was... More

We booked one night at the Knoll to break up our long drive to Scotland. It was fabulous, we were so disappointed we could not stay longer. The welcome is warm, the food is delicious and the location is great. We spent the evening relaxing in the candle lit lounge listening to the well chosen music. Our room was spotless... More

We made a late decision to get away for the night and chose The Knoll, The location is brilliant, tucked away in the country side so perfect for some peace and quiet. Received a warm welcome when we checked in and were shown to our room. We stayed in room 4 and it was beautifully decorated and spotless. A four... More

Stayed for two nights as a birthday treat. The location, house, staff and food are wonderful! Nothing was too much trouble and the room was immaculate. We were made to feel so welcome and the candles and music around the house on a evening just makes you want to curl up and relax. The food was delicious and everything you... More

Stayed for two nights with Sister and Brother-in-law who had stayed before, and my Husband. We were on a walking weekend. Lovely bedroom, cosy lounge, welcoming friendly staff. We decided to eat in as we knew we would be tired in the evening, food very nice and reasonable choice, nothing to much trouble for the staff. Great place, perfect for... More

The Knoll is situated at the southern end of the Lake District, ideal for exploring places like Cartmel and Grange-over-Sands as well as the usual tourist hot spots of Windermere, Ambleside, Hawkshead and such like. It's in a very quiet spot about half a mile from Lakeside where you can get on the boats to Bowness and Ambleside, and approximately... More
