Lake District Cottages


Welcome to the website 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 5 acres of paddock, lakes and woodland on the edge of the Northern Fells of the Lake District.


The nine '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 several 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.


All cottages have wide flatscreen TVs with DVD players, 'Bluetooth' music players with CD and DAB, and access to free high speed wifi.

For Lake District Honeymoons and mini moons we offer a perfect combination of luxury touches. Families will find everything from cots, highchairs and babybaths to boxes of toys, a games room and an outdoor play area. Groups of 8 to 40+ people will enjoy the in-cottage catering options and beers from our local cooperative brewery.

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. Complimentary use of Cumbria's finest membership-only hotel leisure club is also included, where you will find a fully equipped gym, a swimming pool, saunas, a steam room and a beauty treatment area.
