Full Description

Sunny Bank Mill’s stunning location is hard to beat. The large wooded field leading down to the lake provides a great area for dogs to run around off the lead or swim in the lake. We have boats you can hire (or you can bring your own) and we provide free secure covered storage for your bikes.

There are great cycle rides from the doorstep around Coniston Water, off-road on the surrounding fells, or we recommend taking your bikes into nearby Grizedale Forest for the adrenaline rush of the North Face or ‘The Black’ trails, or try the Three Witches loop with awesome views and a variety of terrain and difficulty.

With a rod licence you can fish in the lake or in the beck – recent catches include brown trout, perch and pike. The lake is great for sailing or windsurfing, and a trip to ‘Wild Cat Island’ (of Swallows and Amazons fame) is well worth it.

Indoors there is plenty of space for a large group to be together or apart. Gather around the huge dining room table, watch a film in the snug, or retire to the large lounge for reading or board games in front of the wood-burning stove (firewood provided). The summer house is also a great place to sit and watch the water birds and the local heron.

There are 7 good-sized double bedrooms, all with great views of the pretty garden, the beck or across the field to the lake. 3 of the bedrooms have en-suite shower rooms with walk-in showers and the other 4 share access to a family bathroom and 2 more shower rooms (6 showers in all).

After a day of outdoor activities, you will appreciate our specially designed wet-entrance at the rear, with ample drying space for boots and coats. There’s a large washing machine and tumble dryer, and a wet-room for hanging cagoules or wet-suits. Bikes can be washed down with a hose, and locked inside a secure garage.

Other features include plenty of parking, central-heating and free wifi. Facilities for children include a travel-cot, high chair and a stair-gate on the top floor.
