We have recently returned from a week in The Lake District, we were lucky enough to have stayed at The Knoll, we booked The Retreat and we really couldn't have wished for anything better. The Retreat is the self contained apartment attached to the main hotel and its absolutely delightful, its cosy, warm, very spacious and extremely well appointed and... More

Great food, a lovey big bath and four poster bed, lived up to every expectation. Landlady was very welcoming and made friends with other happy returning customers. Only drawback was the wifi in the room was none existent,other than that, I would definitely recommend. Hope to go again soon x

A great anniversary weekend in The Retreat @ The Knoll. This self-contained apartment had everything to make for a wonderful weekend including a hot tub and wood burner. A great balance between self-catering and hotel service. We were able to choose between breakfast in the dining room or in our lounge. Denise and Jen did a great job. As we... More

2 nights at this wonderful hotel. Brilliant location, fantastic room and perfect food, the lamb was the best I have ever eaten. All mod cons available, yet the character of the building remains intact. The king size bed was very comfortable and the en suite was of a high standard. Be aware that the hotel is out of town so...

This hotel had the best food of any hotel/restaurant I’ve been to. The best cooked breakfast, the best duck, the best sticky toffee pudding, the best veggie moussaka (though admittedly I’ve not had that many of that last item!) Courtesy also pretty impressive. If arriving in the dark I recommend getting instructions about where the parking is because it can... More

Booked here for one night - heading on to visit family. Very warm welcome, room was really nice with a touch of class - dressing gowns & sweets. Small walk (less than 5 minutes) down to the lake where you can head out by steam train or head out onto the lake with a tour. Breakfast was superb - full... More

The Knoll is lovely - i want to start by saying that. The food is exceptional and the welcome you receive is second to none. My issues were the size of the bathroom and the mattress. The shower cubicle was so small, I could barely turn around in it and the mattress was really lumpy. I accept it was the... More

The Knoll Guest House was very welcoming and charming. Good to come back to every evening. The room was very good. Very spacious and comfortable. The breakfasts were served very professionally and the food offered was excellent. A very good place to come back to each evening. An evening menu was available if required.

We booked here in the middle of July based on the premises that it had air conditioning, as it still advertises on its Hotels.com description. We arrived in 30°heat. When we arrived in our very nice Victoria 4 poster room, I asked where the air conditioning controls were, to be told that I must be joking. I explained that the... More

While visiting the Lakes sadly for a funeral we were welcomed warmly to The Knoll. The rooms are beautifully done, with lots of amenities, dressing gowns - very comfy beds. There is a sweet garden and the area is stunning and misty. Good breakfast with lots of options & tasty homemade granola. Would highly recommend.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This tranquil country retreat stands in beautiful grounds at the southern tip of Lake Windermere, surrounded by spectacular woodland. The unwinding begins the moment you arrive. Following a warm welcome, you'll be shown to one of eight beautifully appointed bedrooms, each with its own luxurious en suite bathroom. We've thought of everything, from little treats like complementary toiletries to more practical concerns like hair dryers, Satellite TV, DVD and iPod dock, internet access and your own hospitality tray. We also offer complimentary use of the local four star hotel's health and fitness spa.After that, it's up to you. Our pleasant gardens suggest drinks on the lawn or a lovely outdoor eating experience. Open log fires and a cosy drawing room invite you to curl up and relax. If it weren't for our superb location, you'd never want to go out - but the Lake District beckons, and it's all just waiting to be explored. Need a last minute gift? We can provide vouchers for future stays at the Knoll. Call to book now!! ... more   less
