The boardwalk is a favourite with dogs owners

The Grounds

Overwater is not just about the hotel.  Boasting 18 acres of solitude, our guests can enjoy formal gardens where gravel pathways and outdoor seating encourage you to linger longer; and the impressive boardwalk that snakes off through nursery woodland is hugely popular with our canine friends!  Let us serve you a drink or a light snack outside, weather-permitting!, while you unwind to the sound of silence.
