The glorious location with unspoilt views over Coniston Water and its own private lake shore sets Sunny Bank Chapel apart as the place to stay in the south-western Lake District.


The chapel dates from the 17th Century.  It was rebuilt in 1875 but closed for worship in the 1940s.  A complete refurbishment finished in 2020 has converted this near-derelict chapel into a stunning self-catering holiday let.

Want a romantic retreat, a base for exploring the Lake District or a place to relax or work without disturbance? - this is the place for you.

Please note that the chapel is accessed via steps so may not be suitable if you have limited mobility.
