Ideally situated for Lakeside activities, this property is perfect. Food was excellent, both breakfast and dinner. Rooms are well appointed and to finish the day in front of the fire in the relaxed ambience of the sitting room makes for a perfect end to a day in the area, particularly if you have made the sound decision to dine in....

I booked this trip for my parents for a birthday surprise for my mum; they have just returned and have had a fabulous time. They haven't stopped talking about how wonderful it was; they said from the moment they arrived it was perfect, very relaxing and a perfect place to unwind. They said all the rooms are spotlessly clean and... More

We are on our way home from a brilliant weekend in the Lake District, staying at the Knoll. The location is perfect for the river cruises to Bowness and Ambleside, a 5 minute walk from the front door to the boats. We arrived quite late on the Friday evening after getting stuck in traffic to be greeted by a friendly... More

We left the Knoll on Friday , spending three nights there. I would not hesitate to recomend it, staff were helpful and friendly, the room was spotless and the bed was really comfortable but the food was out of this world. The location is ideal for Windermere, just a short walk to the boats and obviously no parking charges which... More

A cosy sitting room where you can chat to other guests before and after dinner was nice. The use of the nearby leisure facilities was an added bonus. There are plenty... More

My wife and I have just had a wonderful stay at The Knoll. We received the warmest of welcomes from Jen who showed us to our beautiful room complete with a fantastic four-poster bed.

My partner and I spent two very comfortable nights at The Knoll in July 2013. We were attending a wedding, in nearby Finsthwaite, followed by a reception at the Lakeside Hotel. This was just five minutes walk from The Knoll, which meant I could leave the car and enjoy a few pints of the local ale. We received a warm... More

We have just returned from two nights at The Knoll. All I can say is we wouldn't hesitate to use this guest house again, we were given a warm welcome and a lovely room, a blessing was having two windows given the recent heat wave, at least that gave us a nice bit of airflow. The bed was supremely comfortable... More

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
