The location was superb and the lodge was quiet, the hot tub was the icing on the cake. We would recommend this lodge to anyone, we enjoyed every minute of it.
Mr Fowler

It was the best accommodation I have ever stayed in, out of this world!
Mrs Dowling

Silly Knott was an absolutely fabulous, amazing place.
Mrs Johnson

The lodge was luxury at its best, situated remotely and offering peace and tranquillity. The hot tub was most welcome.
Mrs Maddison

The lodge was even better than the photographs showed and situated in a great setting. There are four lodges in total all angled and distanced to be totally private. The accommodation was first class and to a standard that we have been looking for in the Lakes for many years but not found until now.
Mrs Townsend
