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 welcome on arrival, and shown to our room on the second floor. It was a very warm evening and, being an old Victorian house, there is obviously no air conditioning. I'm sure they would have found us an electric fan if we had asked. Instead, we left the window open all night, and we were amazed at how quiet and peaceful the location was - the silence being punctuated only by the occasional hoot of an owl!
We didn't get to try dinner at The Knoll, as we had previous arrangements with family and friends at other locations, but the breakfasts were fabulous. Between us, over the two days we stayed, my partner and I sampled traditional British breakfast, also home made kedgeree - which was really satisfying - but my favourite was, without a doubt, the plump Manx kippers, poached, then lightly grilled and served with malted grain brown bread and butter.
Would we go back? Most certainly! Comfortable, friendly, in a peaceful location and kippers to die for!
