Non-residents now welcome at Knoll House
For the first time in 70 years, Knoll House in Purbeck will be opening its doors to non-residents. A brand new bistro will be open for bookings from all over Dorset and promises “the creature comforts and traditional ambiance that has welcomed generations of British holidaymakers and famous guests since the 1930s.”
Famous visitors have included Vivien Leigh and Roald Dahl. What’s more, Sir Winston Churchill, King George VI and General Dwight D. Eisenhower enjoyed a spot of lunch in its dining room in 1944, as part of an epic rehearsal for D-Day on Studland Beach.
The new bistro promises well-loved English dishes with a modern twist, and a collection of imported coffees and teas, ingredients are sourced from local suppliers, and jams and chutneys from Lily’s produce. The afternoon tea is bound to be popular so be sure to book in advance!
Tracy Tennant, general manager at Knoll House (pictured), said: “We are always pleased to see so many familiar faces returning to the hotel each year to enjoy their holidays. Several of our staff have been here for over 30 years and have had the pleasure of seeing our guests grow up and bring their own families.
“Now having the opportunity to introduce Knoll House to local residents who have not experienced our hospitality before makes it even better. With our new Bistro there really is something for everyone at Knoll House.”
Knoll House covers four acres of gardens and woodland, with a 71-bedroom hotel featuring a spa, heated outdoor pool, children’s playground, tennis courts, and a nine-hole pitch and putt golf course.
The 630 mile long South West Coastal Path starts in Shell Bay to the north of Knoll House. Knoll House also provides direct access onto the four-mile stretch of award-winning sandy Studland Beach via the hotel’s grounds.
It’s popular with dog walkers, cyclists, ramblers, and visitors looking for seaside adventure.
