A LAKES hotel is still looking for a buyer.

The eight-bedroom Sun Hotel in Coniston is on the market for £1.25m.

It is said to be more than 400 years old.

A listing by property agents Colliers International said: “The Sun at Coniston is a pub diner and four-star inn and has been a fixture of Coniston for over 400 years.

“It is located at the beginning of the Pack Horse Trail to the western Lake District, with an excellent location beneath the mountain of Coniston Old Man and overlooks the picturesque village of Coniston.

“At the centre of The Sun is an excellent pub with lots of character including stone walls, oak beams and a bar made from local slate.

“The public bar has a Victorian range that heats the water and adds to the traditional atmosphere with the spacious restaurant, conservatory and outdoor seating area providing flexible dining spaces for all occasions. The newly built “Boat Room” showcases The Sun’s association with Donald Campbell.”
