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.

Spent 3 days in the Retreat apartment at the Knoll just after our wedding in Grasmere. We wanted to get away and completely relax and this place was ideal. Very welcoming from the owner, showed us around a lovely little apartment, a home from home with everything you could need, including a very nice outdoor hot tub! If you are... More

We spent three fabulous nights here in may. The service was of the highest standard and we were made to feel very special. The food was of the highest standard we have experienced anywhere in the world. Thank you again for providing such a wonderful stay.

A first class small boutique style B & B. The most comfortable bed and room, beautifully furnished and decorated. So quiet, and the breakfast is outstanding. Home made produce including the best granola, fresh fruits, wonderful coffee and the cooked part - outstanding. My husband had the 'full works' and it was declared 'delicious'! My smoked salmon with scrambled eggs... More

Room and garden was nice. Comfortable and clean, nicely decorated, good breakfast/evening meal. Slept well, had a pleasant stay. I wouldn't bother with the bottled water - the tap water was far nicer!

Just returned home from a weekend break at The Knoll. Absolutely outstanding place to stay, the staff could not have done anything more for us and nothing was too much trouble. The personal touches, log fire and exceptional food and wine, as well as its idyllic setting made it the perfect romantic weekend away. We will most definitely be returning... More

We have just returned from a four night stay in the magical, secluded Retreat at the back of The Knoll. The little touches to make it a really cosy 'home-from-home' were noted. The hot-tub is an extra bonus after a day of hill walking. Having stayed in the main house way back in August 2012, we have kept meaning to... More

a lovely spacious room and super clean bathroom, we had dinner both nights and WOW !! Were we glad we did, easy to see why they have a 5 star rating. The breakfast is just as good a great selection on offer. Walking to the ferry can be a bit hair raising as there aren't any pavements. A lovely break... More
