Fun on the lake
Enjoying a peaceful moment in the Sunny Bank canoes
Private lake access provides endless enjoyment opportunities, for all ages and abilities - without any need for a car!
The beauty of staying at Sunny Bank is that you can head off down to the lake at a moment's notice, any time of the day - it's waiting for you.
Hire the Sunny Bank boats and paddle or row out to the middle of the lake for stunning views of the fells, then land and explore Peel Island, to discover Arthur Ransome's inspiration for his Swallows and Amazons books.
Or bring your own sailing boats, windsurfers, kayaks - where better to get the best possible use out of them! We holiday at Sunny Bank every year and spend almost all our time onsite, enjoying the lake. You can see some of what we get up to below - have you tried any of these?
