A truly super weekend break. The County House is exactly as described by all the reviews on this site. The hosts are warm, welcoming and very helpful. The rooms ( or at least our room ) was perfect for us; warm, clean, spacious, very comfy bed, lux quilt and a great bathroom with loads of hot water available. The food... More

What a delight, a wonderful find that we will definitely return to. We were greeted warmly on a snowy day and were staying in the retreat at the back of the hotel which is a beautifully decorated, warm and comfortable annexe with hot tub. We relaxed immediately, the surroundings are wonderful and quiet and the bed is exceptional - what... More

Beautiful location, superb hosts, great food (both breakfast and evening meal), accommodation faultless. Overall, a wonderful visit, highly recommended. Stayed Friday and Saturday night, arrived early on the Friday so took a walk (circa 15mins) to the Swan Hotel for a drink and a bite to eat. On the Saturday took a nearby Ferry to Bowness, spent the day there... More

We arrived just after Sunday lunch time and got a warm welcome. we had tea and cake in the sitting room in front of the warm and welcoming fire. We asked for a recommendation for somewhere to have an evening meal. They were very helpful and knowledgeable about the local pubs/restaurants and we made our choice. We had drinks in... More

I have recently returned from a two day break at this fantastic place. The hotel succeeded every expectation, from the modern and large bedroom with a corner bath to the warm and comfy lounge with a roaring open fire. The breakfasts are lovely, tasty and locally sourced and the service and friendliness of the staff makes you instantly feel at... More

We arrived on Friday afternoon and were greeted warmly by Denise, who showed us to our gorgeous room (room 2). Our Living Social deal included tea and cake so we enjoyed that sitting in the cosy, snuggly lounge in front of a roaring log fire! Utter bliss!! We felt so relaxed, we decided to stay there for the rest of... More

Booked a two day stay from 16/12/2014 for a bit of respite before the Christmas onslaught. This was the perfect place to relax and unwind. There was a welcoming log fire in the lounge with background music with tea and cakes on arrival. Although the hotel was in the process of decorating some of its rooms 'during the quiet period'...

This is the first time we have ever stayed in the Lake District and at The Knoll and we would most definitely go back again. The food was impeccable, the service outstanding and the accommodation, just beautiful. The Knoll is an extremely welcoming place with log fires, subtle music and cosy rooms. All of which were perfect for the weekend... More

This is by far the best place we have every stayed! The food is on par with any Michelin star restaurant. The accommodation is luxurious and outstandingly clean. The staff were so friendly nothing was any trouble. We can't wait to return! Can't recommend this place enough.

Lovely hotel set in the woods not far from Newby Bridge. Lovely service, lovely food, real fire, great shower and even nice sweets in the hallway. We were the only ones booked in for dinner at this time of year so they allowed us to eat in the reception room in front of the real fire. First class.
