So who's who at The Knoll

Jen Meads set the business up almost 17 years ago. Before that, she worked as a training consultant in London. Jen's background was in catering and hospitality and she's always had a passion for food and the Lakes. The Knoll was the perfect combination! Jen is also the Chef in between all the other spinning plates!

Denise Hyde manages front of House with Jen and housekeeping with Karen. Denise's background has also been in the hosptiality industry before coming to the Knoll to work with big sister Jen. Denise's after dinner chat and humour here is legendry.

Karen Robb is our part time housekeeper and manages to keep us all in order. Her dry wit and local knowledge are a fearsome combination. She does a mean hospital corner.  

We also have the lovely Alison Deeley who in between helping us with decorating and maintenance, helps at weekends front of house and housekeeping.  Cheryl Bell is our weekday superstar assisting Jen at breakfast with her cheery smile serving guests at breakfast and working with Karen in housekeeping.  She is also an amazing curtain and soft furnishing maker.  A very lucky find for us!  

In addition to our main team, we have a number of wonderful people who are often in and around the Knoll helping and supporting our efforts.
