“We love Knowsley Hall. It is so much better than even the very best 5* hotels. We have stayed with exclusive use on a number of occasions now and every time our guests have been wowed by the experience. It is just fabulous from the moment that you drive down the drive and it is rare to find accommodation of such quality as well as the unique historical setting with the family artwork and furnishings. You will struggle to find a better alternative anywhere in the world.”
