The house was initially just a means of being able to get a large group together under the same roof for a pre-christmas get together, but it turned out to be a great deal more. The house is fantastic, so much space for people to get together in a large group without being cramped or even spread out for a...

As a large group of couples this house was especially suitable with 7 double or twin bedrooms, each with an ensurite or nearby bathroom. It was well equipped to cope with a large group with a large lounge, a dining table that would seat us all and ample cooking equipment. There were good pubs a short drive away in Torver...

About the neighbourhood
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.
