Description

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday cottage in Torver - Sunny Bank Farm

Cosy and full of character; 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms. idyllic location.

Sunny Bank Farm is a spacious and beautifully furnished 17th century farmhouse set in large grounds, with lovely lawned garden and private frontage to Coniston Water. An open fire (firewood provided), central-heating and double-glazing throughout make it an excellent year-round holiday venue, and an ideal base for walking, touring, boating or just relaxing in peaceful surroundings. There are 2 double bedrooms, 2 twin and 1 triple. A 12th person can be accommodated on a comfortable chair-bed in the downstairs den. There are 2 lounges, both with comfy sofas; one with TV, the other with open fire, music system and large window seat giving a splendid view of the garden and the birds landing on the feeders (bring some peanuts!). The open-plan kitchen and dining room easily accommodates 12 people and has everything you will need for quality holiday catering and a comfortable environment for multi-course extended dining!

Excellent reviews on TripAdvisor.

Sunny Bank's grounds are clearly visible in the new Swallows and Amazons film. 'Wild Cat' island is just 15 minutes row away (boats available for hire) - a really fun place to visit.

Car: recommended

Sunny Bank Farm is 4 miles from Coniston, a small but busy typical Lakeland town, and just three-quarters of a mile from Torver, where there is an excellent pub. Popular tourist centres such as Ambleside, Grasmere and Hawkshead are about half an hour away by car. The grounds (16 acres) are bordered by Torver Common and the Cumbria Way to the north and grazed farmland to the south; across the road is Torver Beck and more farmland, and to the east a long stretch of lakeshore onto Coniston Water. Sunny Bank Farm is an ideal location for mountain walking, boating, swimming, sailing and other water-based activities.
