Lake District Cottages


Welcome to the web site for Monkhouse Hill Lake District Cottages - luxury self catering for couples, families and larger groups. Created from an imaginatively converted 17th century hill farm, the cottages stand around a courtyard set in five acres of paddock, lakes and woodland. The 9 'Gold Award' cottages have been stunningly designed to feature bespoke furniture from Cumbrian craftsmen and the work of contemporary Lakeland artists. They provide a superb base for exploring the Lakes by foot, bike or car, and for sampling great Cumbrian food and drink.  As winners of the 2011 Cumbria Tourism Award for ‘Self Catering Holiday of the Year’, Monkhouse Hill really does offer the very best in Lake District cottages.
