“Brilliant indoor and outdoor facilities and activities”
Reviewed May 1, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The location is perfect for easy access to the fells and lake edge and also for more leisurely activities such as bird watching and the identification of the many varied plants in the garden.
The house is family friendly with plenty of space for family activities but also the space for individual adults and children to do their ' own thing'.

“Absolutely brilliant house and location; I've been returning annually for over 10 yrs.”
Reviewed March 18, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Every year I book and stay at Sunny Bank Farm I see new improvements to this lovely house. This year there are newly designed bedrooms and en- suite rooms which are light and welcoming, and very comfortable. The rooms have windows with varying views to the beautiful garden, the courtyard, the fields and lake. I was stunned by the lovely facilities that have been created for this year!! The rest of the house is as delightful as ever, always well-equipped for the larger parties it can cater for; a lovely open fire-place if you wish to use it and lots of comfy armchairs. I like the large garden, being able to walk across private land down to the lake and also that we can step off the property and around the lake for longer walks any moment we choose. I've already booked for 2018!

“Cosy farmhouse full of character in superb surroundings”
Reviewed October 21, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Lovely old farmhouse full of character but very comfortable The kitchen was extremely well stocked and the second fridge very useful The radiator in the boot room under the coat rail provided warm and dry coats every morning The garden with the autumn colours was beautiful but the lakeside and scenery were spectacular The ferry even stops at sunny bank landing though it was more difficult to reach than we first thought A wonderful holiday had by all Thank you

We stay at sunny bank year after year for the coniston run. We absolutely love the house with its large kitchen area perfect for the group to get together and the cosy lounge for relaxing in. The location of sunny bank is great as you have the lake just at the bottom of the field and the kids love going out on the boats over to the island. There is a lovely walk along the lakeside into coniston. All our friends love it and say that it is the best place they have stayed in the lakes.

“Uniquely special holiday location - we keep on coming back!”
Reviewed February 13, 2016 for a stay in August 2015

Sunny Bank offers a unique opportunity to explore Coniston Water by boat or by walking along the lake shore in its own private fields. The access to the water is the envy of any keen sailor or windsurfer, and one can follow an exhilarating day on the water with a cosy evening indoors or dining outside in the the extensive gardens. With serious hill walks accessible from the front door and with a well equipped games barn, there is more than enough here to keep the whole family entertained.
