Lake District Cottages


A very warm welcome to Monkhouse Hill Lake District Cottages. Whether you’re a couple, a family or a group, you’ll find superbly designed cottages for a memorable break in the Northern Lakes.


Once a 17th Century farmstead, Monkhouse Hill sits in 5 acres of landscaped grounds with woodland and lake features. Nine ‘Gold Award’ cottages have been formed from old and new buildings to create a picturesque courtyard.


Cumbrian craftsmen and contemporary Lakeland artists have created unique living spaces in the cottages, and a unique range of extras and services, including free membership of a superb hotel spa, are on offer for your stay.


Our position on the border of the Northern Fells and the tranquil Eden Valley makes us ideally placed for exploring North and South Lakes as well as Hadrian’s Wall and southern Scotland.


For couples and honeymoons we offer cosy cottages and a special combination of luxury touches. Our ‘Extras’ service lets families order from a wide range of toys and equipment for babies and young children. Groups of from 8 to 40 can select whichever combination of cottage sizes works best – eat and socialize together but sleep in your own place!

Most cottages have an indoor sauna, an outdoor hot tub, an indoor spa bath or a steam tub - several cottages have more than one of these. All cottages have flatscreen TVs, 'Bluetooth' music players with CD and DAB, and free high speed wifi.

At the North Lakes Spa you will find a state of the art gym, a flat deck swimming pool, steam room and saunas, and a beauty treatment area.

As two times winners of Cumbria Tourism's award for 'Self Catering Holiday of the Year', Monkhouse Hill really does offer the very best in Lake District cottages.
