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

My husband and I did not stay in the hotel but in the retreat next door (have reviewed this separately also 5 stars and fab!) but came to the knoll for breakfast twice. 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.

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!
