Looking north from Sunny Bank Mill jetty to the Central Fells
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.

If you love the tranquil beauty of the
Lakes and find yourself drawn to the pretty becks and peaceful waterfronts, this is the perfect holiday destination for you.

Situated on the quiet western shore of Coniston Water, not far from Peel Island ("Wildcat Island" of Swallows and Amazons fame), and surrounded by beautiful countryside, Sunny Bank Mill boasts private lake frontage and has its own jetty where you can launch your own boat or hire one of our Canadian (open) canoes.

Whether you like to sit and admire stunning views, or would rather get out and explore by foot, bicycle, sail or paddle, these cottages make an ideal holiday base for a family, small group of friends, or a romantic getaway for two, at any time of the year.

The three cosy apartments (Dipper, Robin & Wren) sleep 4, 4 and 2 respectively. Thick stone walls and individual layouts give each its own quirky character. Furnished to a high standard (fitted carpets throughout) they are equipped with everything you will need to enjoy your holiday.

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.
