Excellent 5/5 Score from 4 reviews

Wren Cottage is the end part of the old Sunny Bank Mill building

Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2

Key Info
  • Beach / lakeside relaxation
  • Nearest beach 0 km
  • 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.

Perfect for couples, Wren cottage forms the eastern end of the original Mill building. An unusual double flight of stone steps leads to the front door which opens straight into an attractive and spacious living area. This comprises a smart fitted kitchen, dining area, and comfy seating with flat-screen television. The bedroom has a king-size bed, bedside tables, wall-lights, and plenty of drawer and hanging space. The newly-fitted bathroom (enlarged from previous years) is en-suite to the bedroom and comprises a powerful pumped shower over the bath, a WC, heated towel rail and wash-basin. Wren is fitted with new digital electric radiators to provide just the right level of heating at the touch of a button.

About this location

The Duddon Valley region

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.

"Serene and lovely"

Sunny Bank offers three charming cottages created from a 300 year old corn mill yet it has very modern bath and kitchens plus free laundry on site. There is lake access and a boat on the property as well as a babbling beck to keep you company. The owner and caretaker make sure your stay is nice one. Best yet, Sunny Bank is on the West Bank of Coniston Water, far from the madding crowds of Windemere.
