Monkhouse Hill Wedding Venue Information Monkhouse Hill, nestling in the foothills of the Caldbeck Fells offers a beautiful Lakeland location for your wedding reception.
Once a 17th century hill farm, this award winning collection of luxury cottages is set in 5 acres of landscaped grounds, with spectacular panoramic views over the Eden Valley.
For a truly special occasion what could be better than sharing a weekend or week with friends and family in luxury accommodation, and celebrating in this stunning Lake District setting?
Erect a marquee or tipi by the cottages and you have a magical, intimate reception for 40 to 120 people.
We can recommend a frankly fabulous photographer, florist, brewery, caterers, wedding cake supplier, wedding planner and tent hire business, but you are of course under no obligation to use any of these. Your wedding is unique – and we are an independent venue. We want to make sure your day is as individual as you are.
You might choose a registry office, or one of the many nearby romantic locations for the ceremony itself. We are only just over 30 minutes from Gretna Green. You might even choose to hold a Reaffirmation Ceremony during the reception.
The cottages themselves are a mixture of 400 year old barns and sensitive later additions clustered around a central courtyard. Sleeping up to 46, the properties are gorgeously furnished with bespoke furniture from local craftsmen and the work of contemporary Lakeland artists. Our romantic cottages for couples have four poster or canopied beds and log burning stoves to keep you cosy. Our family sized cottages provide contemporary, spacious open plan living, yet retain their traditional charm with old beams and exposed stonework. Most cottages have an indoor sauna, spa bath or mini steam box, and an outdoor hot tub. Our games room and outdoor play area entertain both young and old alike.
Our Fisher Gill, Mickle Rigg and Chapel Beck cottages make the perfect honeymoon retreat - see our website for details of our honeymoon package.
Guests also have complimentary use of the exclusive North Lakes Spa in Penrith, giving access to a fully equipped gym, swimming pool, saunas, steam room and beauty treatments.
We can also recommend nearby hotels and B&Bs for any additional overnight guests.
We are close to Keswick, Penrith and Carlisle, and are only 15 minutes drive from the M6 and 90 mins by car from Newcastle and Manchester.
