Monkhouse Hill Cottages
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 14, 2013

I recently got married at Monkhouse hill and I have to say I could not have picked somewhere more perfect, the owners were fabulous and helped us with everything we asked including suggesting local caterers, florists, djs and many more, as we are not from the area this was extremely helpful. They were very accommodating and helped us in making our wedding weekend perfect. All of our family and friends stayed with us at Monkhouse hill and everyone of them had only nice things to say about the cottages, so much so that some of them have booked to stay again this year. The cottages were beautiful and the location made for perfect pictures and a beautiful view for our guests to admire. The best thing about having our wedding at Monkhouse meant we could make a weekend of it, our guests arrived on Friday and did not leave till Monday and all our guests were able to stay together on one site. I would highly recommended Monk house hill to anyone considering getting married in Cumbria it is an idyllic location, and would highly recommended it to any family, couples or larger groups looking for a short break away. It truly is 5* accommodation.

We stayed at Chapel Beck cottage at Monkhouse Hill based on the fantastic reviews and its close proximity to the fantastic Old Crown in Hesket Newmarket just a few miles away and the surrounding local area; we were delighted to find that it lived up to every expectation we had and more. The cottage was clean, impeccably decorated with modern amenities whilst maintaining the rustic character of a country cottage... the mince pies and mulled wine provided on arrival were a really nice touch too!

Chapel Beck is a superb cottage for a couple to spend a few days, the bedroom is stunning and the Steam Tub and Sauna brilliant and the log burner in the living room a real feature....the whole cottage was a delight to stay in and we couldn't recommend it highly enough

Both Andy and Jennifer made us feel very welcome and were more than happy to help us with any inquiries we had during our stay.

My wife and I stayed with our seven-month old daughter in the Mickle Rigg cottage in early June for three nights and enjoyed it very much. A car is needed, but the place is simply charming and in an ideal country setting. We had some difficulties with hot water in the shower (available only for a short time), but it wasn't a big problem. There is firewood at hand for a small price and a fireplace in the cottage just gives that feeling one would hope for from a cottage in the Lake District. Most area attractions are easily reached by car and there is a town nearby for amenities, as well as a service station on the M6. Highly recommended, deserving of its awards, and we'd definitely stay here again on a future trip.

We have just had a lovely stay in Chapel Beck cottage at Monkhouse Hill. We had a welcoming tea tray in the cottage which provided us with fresh milk , mince pies and mulled wine .The cottage was very cosy and clean, it was well quipped and the large bed very comfy. We particularly enjoyed the sauna and log burning fire .A real treat away .

We booked to stay at the Fisher Gill cottage at Monkhouse Hill based on the good reviews and great amenities offered; we were thrilled to find that it lived up to every expectation. The cottage was clean, warm and welcoming, the cakes provided on arrival very tasty and the wood burner a real hit. Lots of information provided in the cottage, the local walk guide was really useful and the general facilities on site were all of high quality. As well as the local walks from the door the cottage was a great base to explore the Caldbeck Fells (although we may need to return as we never made it to the hut on Great Lingy Hill to sign the guest book!) We also made use of the complimentary access to the North Lakes Spa in Penrith (20-30 min drive away) a couple of times (gym and wet spa) which was a real treat on wet days! Highly recommended.

We spent a weekend in Raven Howe cottage which was lovely. It was a very spacious cottage with excellent facilities. Personal favourite was the hot tub on the balcony with a beautiful view. Great location for exploring the Lake District. The grounds were well kept with a nice lake and were very peaceful, perfect for a quiet getaway.

Just recently had my Hen Weekend here and I can't speak more highly of this place. It was perfect. The views are stunning and the facilities are great. We stayed in Great Calva. The rooms were all very well furnished, it had a lovely living room and lots of room around a big dining tables for the late night wine drinkers! We will definitely be coming back in the future. Well worth a visit. Penrith and Carlisle are also in easy driving distance for the complimentary spa trip and shopping!
