This was our third visit to Overton Bank house and it didn't let us down. The kids loved playing around the house and especially with the dressing up box! The house was cosy and warm all weekend (much appreciated after a couple of snowy walks). The kitchen is so well equipped and we love being able to sit everyone around one table for Sunday lunch.
This a great house for a family or friends get-together and hopefully we'll be back in 2018.
Trying to find a venue that caters for an extended (14) family Christmas including grandparents and 6 kids under 8, is not easy, but Overton Bank House does it with ease, and comfort. There is plenty of sitting area space, a wonderful dining area that genuinely can accommodate large numbers, a back garden that is perfect to let the kids out for a play, and bedrooms that allow you to be very comfortable and with enough separation that you don't feel like one sleepless child will cause the whole household to have a bad night!
The whole OBH experience is just easy: from the booking right through until departure, everything is thought of and taken care of, and any query is only a phone call / email away and promptly answered.
The owners are very kind and thoughtful and instead of the minimum, they really understand setting up a house like this for their guests. It would seem that they have approached preparing the house in a "now what would we want/need/have to have, if we were staying here a week" attitude and it shows: there are plenty of towels, blankets, appliances are modern and in excellent condition, and WiFi is easy to use and strong throughout the property.
The actual house is perfect and really does allow for self catering for large parties / families: we cooked Christmas dinner for 14 comfortably with enough pots, plates, glasses and cutlery to spare. And their Welcome Hamper is a personal and generous touch that just makes it feel like you are coming home.
You could say that the accommodation is excellent, the level of attention to detail is of a very high standard and it would be true. But, I would sum up OBH as "a truly wonderful place to stay that just works, with ease." It is our second stay and we will be back!
Group of 16, 8 adults and 8 children went here for a weekend. It is the most beautiful accommodation. But more than that the owners have thought of everything. Every little convenience to make your stay a home from home. A basket of basics and treats awaited us on arrival. Including pumpkins, as it was halloween. Every kitchen utensil and appliance is available. Even disposable bbqs to use under the outdoor canopy.
the place was spotlessly clean and the linen and towels fresh and laundered. I cannot recommend this place highly enough and well done to the owners for the time and effort and care they put into their guests enjoyment
We planned a surprise 60th Birthday getaway for my husband with all the family plus 2 dogs. Overton Bank House ticked all our boxes and when we arrived it was more than we had ever expected. Large well decorated rooms, very clean, with everything you could ever think that you would need had been provided.
Situated in a beautiful town with a park across the road, a convenience store a 2 minute walk and a pub next door - which we never heard a peep out of - what more could you want?
As our stay was over the first weekend in November we didn't get to sit in the garden but there is so much room and a lovely large garden table and chairs to enjoy a summer BBQ - which is what we are planning for next year when we return.
Thanks very much to Gilly who was very helpful from start to finish. Well done.

" WOW " had the most fantastic weekend in the superb house, you really could not wish for anything more it had everything. Great space & very clean and tastefully decorated and so convenient for the beautiful market town of leek. We hired a hot tub from a firm recommended by the booking lady and we weren't disappointed. Will recommend to everyone. Thank you OBH for a truly fantastic time.
