The setting for this hotel is beautiful, amongst lovely grounds in a secluded location. From the moment we stepped through the front door, we were made to feel genuinely welcome, as were our dogs! The bedroom was excellently appointed and spacious, with all the comforts required for a relaxing stay. The owner, Steve, who was on hand during our stay... More

Stayed at the Overwater Hall yesterday for a wedding and it's amazing, gorgeous setting, great rooms and the service is second to none. Highly recommend and no comparison to a more expensive hotel we stayed in the week before whilst visiting Blackpool.

Overwater has an amazing and exceptionally well -deserved reputation. Service throughout from Stephen, Angela and the team was impeccable, Fine Dining from Adrian and his team perfect, and to top the evening we had coffee in the bar and chat with Adrian and Angela and two entertaining Chocolate Labs! Love this place. Highly recommended.

We have just had our perfect wedding on Friday 28th Oct at Overwater Hall. We knew after a visit for afternoon tea last year it was the place for us.

You have to stay here if you're visiting the Lakes! We're just home from a 4 night stay at the gorgeous Overwater Hall and are truly sad to have left!

Incredible food, has to be tasted to be believed.
