Sunny Bank Mill Dipper Cottage

from£46/nighthelp

Very Good 4/5 Score from 1 review

Dipper Cottage is part of the old mill building at Sunny Bank Mill

Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4

Key Info
  • Beach / lakeside relaxation
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Car advised
  • Pets welcome

This 200 year-old traditional stone watermill has been cleverly converted into three individual and attractive cottage-style apartments. In an idyllic riverside setting beside tumbling Torver Beck, the apartments are full of character and retain many original features such as exposed stone walls and beams, whilst ensuring comfort and warmth after the day's activities.

A grassy lane alongside the beck leads to a large wooded field - a great place for children's games and a haven for dogs - and then on to the secluded waterfront.

Formed from the original wheelhouse, Dipper cottage has a wonderful outlook straight onto the rocky waterfalls of the beck. The front door enters surprisingly at first floor level into a beamed entrance hall off which lie the 2 bedrooms and bathroom. The master bedroom looks out over the beck and boasts a king-size bed. The second bedroom has twin beds. The bathroom is enlarged from previous years and is newly fitted with a powerful pumped shower over the bath, plus WC, heated towel rail and wash-basin.

Quaint winding stairs lead down to an attractive and carefully thought-out open-plan living area comprising smart fitted kitchen, dining area and comfy seating with flat-screen TV. The low window-seat has a great view straight out onto the pretty waterfalls.

The Cumbria/Lake District

Sunny Bank lies at the heart of England’s beautiful Lake District National Park. Here one can enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the countryside so beloved by Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter, Arthur Ransome (to name but a few) and yet be within easy reach of charming villages and towns with all the attractions they have to offer.

Popular tourist centres such as Ambleside, Grasmere and Hawkshead are about half an hour away by car. Half an hour in the opposite direction gets you to the beach at Haverigg where there are miles of sand (especially at low tide) and large sand dunes. It is great for kite flying as it is fairly exposed.

Coniston

Sunny Bank Mill is 4 miles from Coniston, a small but busy typical Lakeland town, and just three-quarters of a mile from Torver, where there are 2 pubs, both serving excellent food. There are some wonderful local walks such as exploring the old quarries above Torver, climbing to the top of Coniston Old Man and coming back via Dow Crag, or you can use the Sunny Bank Jetty to combine a lakeside walk with a ride on Coniston Launch.

The steamboat Gondola also sails from Coniston around the lake and stops off at Brantwood, the home of John Ruskin. For the more adventurous, horse-riding is available at Torver, a variety of water-craft may be hired in Coniston, and Grizedale Forest is an excellent location for mountain biking.

"Lovely little cottage where you fall asleep to the sound of Torver Beck"

Dipper Cottage is a lovely little get-away, just outside Torver, south of Conniston. the cottage is an old converted mill, perched above Torver Beck which provides a constant soundtrack to your stay. … More
