As always, there was absolutely nothing one could fault about Overwater Hall. Even the Covid restrictions could not dent the welcome and the warm friendly atmosphere. I have never had food that could be described as “ mediocre” here - it has always been wonderful. The standard never slips.

We absolutely love this hotel and were so happy to be able to stay again for two nights and enjoy Angela and Stephen’s hospitality and Adrian’s superb food. Despite having to put measures in place for Covid 19, our stay was just comfortable and relaxing as before. We cannot recommend Overwater Hall highly enough, it’s an absolute dream.

We’ve been coming to Overwater for 25 years and it’s not an exaggeration to say that it’s one of the Lake District’s best kept secrets. The service and hospitality is without fault, the rooms are wonderfully indulgent, but it’s the fabulous food that really stands out and the reason people return again and again to this special place. I’ve been to many swish Michelin star restaurants in Cumbria and the rest of the UK, some good and some not so good. But all of them could learn a thing or too from Overwater’s Head Chef Adrian Hyde about creating a truly imaginative and creative menu from the finest local ingredients available in Cumbria. Of course, you may not get your seared scallops served on an old roofing slate, or your venison on a bed of Herdwick sheep’s wool, but if you can live without those experiences in your life, you’ll love the food at Overwater.

What a gem, the food, service and attention to detail made our stay wonderful.
The location is beautiful and we got to see a red squirrel! I looked forward to seeing the menu each night to see what had been added it was all delicious.
Would highly recommend.
Thanks you

Our first tentative venture out since lockdown. Two nights over the bank holiday - absolutely wonderful little break.

Charming owners and staff, spotlessly clean throughout, social distancing enforced with charm & old school courtesy. Lovely grounds and local walks - and all topped off with food of a remarkably high standard cooked by the co-owner chef who is clearly at the top of his game.

Highly recommended. Thank you.
