We would not dream of staying anywhere else in the Lake District as this is the perfect place, we have stayed previously & are gradually working our way around each of the sumptuous bedrooms, all different, all exceptionally clean & comfortable & I am a real fuss pot!
The beds are are great, so comfortable & I always sleep well while there & there is no early morning noise to wake you up like in some of the bigger hotels, other than the red squirrel stealing the nuts from the feeder in the ginko tree if you are in room 2!
Nothing is left to chance everything is extremely well organised & Stephen, Adrian & Angela are exceptional hosts & their attention to detail & attitude filters down to the staff who are so helpful, nothing is too much trouble. Both the breakfast, where there is a huge selection (you must try the cumbrian cooked breakfast) & evening meal are excellent. Dining there is a real experience, 4 course evening meal with a wide selection of meats & fish, all having so much taste & flavour which I am sure would put many a top restaurant in London to shame, Adrian is really a very talented chef & his staff in the kitchen have obviously had a good teacher.
The experience that is Overwater Hall is wonderful, it is a magical place, & great value for money, & you can even take your dog along & save on the cost of kennels. I cannot wait to go again. The location is perfect, lovely garden with red squirrel & deer in the grounds & some lovely walks, so relaxing, I hope they don't ever retire!
