Group Holidays

Monkhouse Hill was recognised by Excellence in England for pioneering the concept of large cottages for groups of families or friends to holiday together.


We offer large cottages sleeping up to 14, or combinations of adjacent cottages which provide more freedom but allow everyone to eat together. The bedroom areas of larger cottages are designed so that a double and twin share a bathroom, in an area which can be closed off at night.

Different cottage choices offer different combinations of spa baths, saunas and outdoor hot tubs. And of course you will all enjoy full membership of the North Lakes Spa during your stay.


Larger groups may wish to hire all nine cottages at Monkhouse Hill, sleeping 46 in total, which creates a unique setting for extended family reunions or memorable wedding celebrations.
