Young Family

Families with young children will find everything they need at Monkhouse Hill to keep the little ones happy, busy, and, by the end of the day, tired.
Children will let off steam on the outdoor play area – complete with swings, slide, rope wall, tunnel and secret house. Or take them to explore the 5 acres of enclosed landscaped grounds with woodland and ponds.
Get the kids to bed, then ‘eat out’ in your cottage from one of our Pre-Arrival Order Service menus.
The basics – cots (with bedding), high chairs, stairgates etc can all be ordered in advance and will be set up for your arrival.
Whilst at Monkhouse Hill you have full access to the North Lakes Spa in Penrith. Young children are welcome – there is toddler paddling area next to the the shallow end of the main pool. And parents will enjoy escaping to the steam room or saunas!
All cottages have a smart TV and free high speed broadband. We also have lots of kids’ books to borrow.
Within a short drive of Monkhouse Hill you’ll find a range of attractions for young children – from indoor play centres and working farms with animals to feed, to narrow gauge railways and cruises on the lakes.
