This has got to be a hidden gem! We were looking for a quiet break close to the Lake District attractions but not too close and with local scenery of its own to explore which is not too physically demanding. We found the ideal spot at Overwater Hall. But that's not all, the Hall has a charming, well presented 'olde...

We have stayed a couple of times before and we are never disappointed by their consistent top level of standards. Cocktails are intriguing and fascinating to watch being made. Food is delicious and beautifully presented. Top marks once again !

We have just returned from our first stay at Overwater Hall and can honestly say it will not be our last. Murphy our dog also agrees! From the moment we arrived we were made to feel special.

My daughter and I visited after I received a voucher. The hotel is lovely, set in quiet grounds with lots of red squirrels running about. Food and service was faultless, we even got un-eaten cakes boxed for us to take home with us. We were allowed to sneak a look into one of the rooms which was very well appointed....

The recent list of the best restaurants has prompted me to review the most excellent dinner we recently had at this hotel. the surroundings are elegant, the staff charming and attentive and the food superb. The husband and wife team who run Overwater can be justly proud of their creation. We have not stayed here so can only comment on...

We stayed for the first time for one night only on 24 October but would have stayed longer had we known what welcome awaited us! Having stayed in many hotels throughout the UK over many years we have to rate this as the best one - the welcome we received, the hospitality throughout our stay, and the food. All aspects...

We’ve stayed and dined at Overwater for over twenty years now and it never fails to disappoint. Over the years we’ve watched as Overwater has become the benchmark for all other hotels to aspire to. Much has been written on this site about the exquisite food, the impeccable service, the stunning location and I would thoroughly echo all those comments....

Just back from four nights at Overwater Hall with my elderly mother. We occupied the ground floor garden room which meant she didn't have to contend with the stairs. I did wonder if it would be too quiet for her as she lives alone but we both had a lovely time; as she said it was lovely to be able...

We recently had an absolutely wonderful weekend at Overwater Hall. It was chosen partly because of its extensive grounds as we had young children with us. The rooms were lovely and the food was excellent (one of the best!) but what made it special as far as I was concerned was the friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

We stayed in August of 2013, and loved every moment. Our room was on the ground floor and just beautiful. A door leads to a small porch with bird feeder and I spent quite a bit of time bird and red-squirrel watching, and with the views of the mountains beyond, it was idyllic. The en-suite bathroom was large and well...
