Our Retreat at The Knoll

In addition to the Hotel, we have a wonderful self contained suite for 2 people. It boast a large lounge with dressing area, TV/DVD player. It’s furnished with Neptune hand painted furniture and sumptuous soft furnishings.

The kitchenette is well equipped with fridge, microwave combi grill and a 2 ring hob.  It has a small breakfast bar with comfy stools so you can watch the wildlife while you contemplate the day preparing your own breakfast (or indeed whilst you await a room service breakfast should you prefer).

The bathroom has a large double ended bath with a good power shower over.

The lounge is large but cosy with a dining area, 43″ TV, DVD and Freesat TV. The lounge also has a fabulous gas wood burning style stove (All the joys but non of the pain!). The french doors lead out on to a private terrace with a hot tub. Relax your aching bones after a day on the fells in style!

We offer the apartment on a room only basis but you can take advantage of breakfast and dinner – either served in your suite or if you’d prefer, in our dining room at the Knoll.

It’s a fabulous, stylish break away from it all with space to relax and contemplate life.

We closed our doors here at The Knoll finally on 7th December 2021 and said goodbye to this cherished home.  

It has been a place of love, laughter and sanctuary and I have been privileged to have been its custodian for almost 21 years - a third of my life.  It’s been incredibly hard to let go as it has been more than a job and more than a home. Thank you for supporting it and me through either being amazing guests or treasured friends - in many cases both.  I particularly want to thank my wonderful team  - Cheryl Munster, Karen Robb Bellman, Helen Snowball-Brand, Ali Deeley.   But of course, The Knoll would be nothing without my fabulous sister Denise Hyde and my truly incredible partner Mosy Mac.  I’m so proud of what we did here.  The love and genuine care we afforded every single person who walked through our doors over the years has been what made us special. We have offered a port in a storm for some, a place to enjoy the Lakes for others and in the middle of this, a home for me and my nearest and dearest.  This beautiful building has been handed on with love to its lovely new family.  

We wish you all well in the future and again, thank you for supporting this wonderful place.  Should you want to keep in touch,  we still have the Knoll email address.

Warmest wishes and love always,
