Description from owner

Description

This 300 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, each of the three apartments (Dipper, Wren and Robin) 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.

From the car-park a grassy lane beside the beck leads to a large wooded field (sheep-free - a haven for dogs) and on to the secluded lake-shore, where you can sit in peace and enjoy the views, or jump into a canoe to explore the lake and the island.

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 TV & DVD player.

The bedroom has a king-size bed, bedside tables, wall-lights, and plenty of drawer and hanging space. The bathroom is en-suite to the bedroom and comprises a powerful pumped shower over the bath, a WC, heated towel rail and wash-basin. Digital electric radiators provide just the right level of heating at the touch of a button.

“Perfect for dogs”

Reviewed 25 Oct 2018

This was a try out for me as I've not long lost my husband. I don't drive but I knew, (thought), I could walk along the shoreline. Except there was a monsoon on the day of my arrival. The picnic chairs on the shoreline were under water and the jetty couldn't even be seen. Nor was it all week. Torver Beck broke its banks and was a flooded raging torrent all week but it was lovely going to sleep with to sound of water. Neither the cottages or house were ever at risk though. They were too high up above the beck. The cottage was lovely. Small but had everything you need. It was beautifully clean, my thanks to whoever cleans it. The quirky floor caught me out a few times with it's slope to the bedroom, but in a way it added to the charm. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom shone like a new pin. The matching crockery and cutlery was lovely. Some accommodations have a mismatch of chipped and stained crockery, not this though. I felt as if everything was brand new and I was the first person to use them. As previous people have said, you can hear people in the other cottages, I could hear them in their bathroom and what they were doing in there. But I guess that depends on who is staying in them. Because of the rain the door leaked a bit and was very stiff to open but certainly not impossible. From a selfish point of view, when the door needs to be replaced, a stable door would be brilliant. They keep pets or children in while letting in the sun or fresh air. All in all it was what I needed. A peaceful week with stunning scenery to look at.

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.
