Gorgeous river-side location, spacious rooms, pet-friendly, field, lake access

Located in: Coniston »
Sunny Bank Mill's stunning location beside Torver beck is hard to beat, and every single room enjoys wonderful views of the beck, or across the field to Coniston Water.
The large wooded field leading down to the lake provides a great area for dogs to run around off the lead, and there's even a jetty to launch boats from. Whether you like an active holiday exploring the fells, or sailing or wind-surfing on the lake, or whether you prefer to sit and enjoy beautiful scenery in tranquil locations, this makes an ideal holiday venue for large groups of friends, or an extended family.

Approached from the parking area across a pretty footbridge over the beck, Sunny Bank Mill House has an impressive entrance hall with parquet floor. The splendid lounge is light and airy with 2 huge bay windows, a good-sized wood-burning stove (firewood provided), TV with blu-ray/DVD player and a small music system, and is large enough to seat 14 on comfortable sofas. Arranged in 2 groups round the TV and the wood-burner, it's a great place to read, relax, chat, listen to music, play a board-game or attempt a jigsaw - take your pick!

The well-designed kitchen with handmade fitted units contains all the facilities, cupboards and worktop space you need for good quality holiday catering. There is a double electric fan oven & grill built-in at eye level, a 5-ring gas hob, a large upright fridge-freezer with additional built-in fridge and a good dishwasher. Plenty of crockery, cutlery and glassware to allow for multi-course extended dining. The dining-room itself is open-plan with the kitchen and is conservatory-style with wide view of the beck and shrubs and trees beyond, and has seating for 14 round a huge Victorian oak dining table - perfect for dinner-time conversations. There is a ground-floor cloakroom with WC accessed from the hall.

On the first floor are 4 generously-proportioned double bedrooms, with fantastic views through big picture windows. 2 of these have en-suite shower rooms with walk-in showers and the other 2 share access to a family bathroom with a shower over the bath. One bedroom has a king-size bed, two have twin beds and the fourth has a super-king bed which can be made into 2 singles if preferred. Upstairs on the top floor are 3 further good-sized bedrooms. One twin room has an en-suite shower; the second twin room and the double room share a shower-room between them.

If you're keen on outdoor activities, whether that's a windsurfing session on the lake, or a day on the fells, you will appreciate our specially designed wet-entrance at the rear, with ample drying space for boots and coats, and a wet-room with hanging space for dripping cagoules or wet-suits. A large capacity washing machine and tumble dryer are provided, along with drying racks on the wall.

There is central-heating throughout and 2 wifi networks to ensure coverage over the whole house. There's a payphone in the hall. Facilities for children include a good-sized travel-cot, a high chair, and a stair-gate on the top floor. The house is fully detached. There are 3 small holiday apartments in a separate building just upstream (the original Mill), sleeping 2-4 each. Any of these can be booked as an overflow but are also let independently. These Cottages are approached from the other side, have a separate parking area well away from the House, and don't overlook or affect the privacy of guests in the House. Cottage guests do however share Sunny Bank Mill's field and lake frontage and have access to this by means of a grassy lane passing just behind the house (which is also available to House guests and would be the way to take a boat down to the lake if you bring your own).

From the lounge, patio doors open out into the attractive garden (also accessible from the footbridge path), beautifully planted for all seasons. There is a sheltered south-west facing lawn (backed by a high stone wall) with some garden chairs and a large fully-glazed summerhouse with comfy seating where you can relax and enjoy the beck and garden even on cooler days. A gravel path runs a further 50 metres or so downstream, making a very pleasant walk between a wide variety of shrubs to your left and the beck flowing along on your right. Otters or a heron can occasionally be seen; more often an adventurous mallard or two and the resident Dipper!

At the end of the path you can cut up onto the lane and enter Sunny Bank Mill's large field leading down to the lake shore. Here there is plenty of space for dogs to run around or for informal ball games if you feel so inclined. The grass is kept short and there's even a little hidden path through the trees - a delight for young children. At the lake shore there is a stone jetty affording fantastic views right up the lake to the central fells, clearly visible. It's a quiet and secluded part of the lake - a lovely place to sit and watch the water-birds with the occasional sailing boat passing by. If you fancy exploring the lake why not hire our rowing boat and canoes (extra charge)? It's a short paddle over to the island which is a fantastic place to explore.with secret harbours, trees to climb, wild honeysuckle and rocks where you can stretch out and sunbathe on a warm day. If it's not so warm, take a thermos and enjoy a hot drink while you're there.
