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 watercraft may be hired in Coniston, and Grizedale Forest is an excellent location for mountain biking.
