Walk for hours without seeing another soul, and if you find yourself stuck in traffic, you can be sure there is a tractor up ahead!

May there always be a cairn on your horizon and mud on your boots.

Wildlife

Overwater Hall’s extensive grounds offer a host of opportunities for enjoying the local wildlife, with resident red squirrels being the top attraction.

Deer and rabbits are amongst the less unusual visitors, whilst hotel guests delight in watching the feeding antics of the delicately coloured Nuthatch, or the more vibrant Greater Spotted Woodpecker. In fact, the Hall has often been described as a bird watcher’s paradise, and if you visit between April and August you might even catch site of one of Cumbria’s nesting Ospreys flying overhead on its way to fish at Overwater Tarn. To be sure of seeing these magnificent birds, visit the official Osprey viewpoint at Dodd Wood, just 3 miles from the hotel.
