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.
Formed from the lower storey of the original Mill building, Robin cottage is all on one level and has a small but private south-facing garden. Approached down a flight of old stone steps...

Perfect surroundings with sheep for neighbours, a 2 min stroll along the grass/ rivers edge, through a tiny woodland you find yourself at the lakes edge which is very private. We took the canoe out every day followed by a bonfire on the...

Situated within sight and a few minutes stroll of Coniston Water, with a stream burbling past right underneath one of the bedroom windows, this cottage couldn't be more ideally located. Daphne was very helpful with information packs about the property so we knew exactly what to expect when we got there. The whole place was very clean and comfortably furnished....

About the neighbourhood
Sunny Bank is situated on the quiet western shore of Coniston Water. Surrounded by fantastic scenery on all sides you don't need to go far to enjoy the beauty of the Lakes. Wonderful walks from the doorstep take you along the lake-shore or up onto Torver Common, with its pretty tarns and breathtaking lake and mountain views. Hire our canoe (or bring your own boat) and have fun exploring the lake including Swallows & Amazons 'Wild Cat' island.
Torver, a mile away, has two pubs, both serving excellent food. Coniston, 4 miles north, is a small but busy typical Lakeland village, with several shops and a variety of pubs and places to eat. Ulverston (6 miles south) has a great supermarket (Booths), cobbled streets and many interesting shops.
Car advised
How to get there
Railway: Ulverston or Oxenholme: 0.0 km
