Overwater Hall…it is more than a hotel, it’s an experience


Each of the eleven tastefully furnished and decorated bedrooms is different, but all are equipped to the same exacting high standard. The Garden Room and Superior Rooms have the edge, space-wise, and also enjoy wonderful fell views. Rooms One, Seven and Ten are that bit smaller - yet still large enough to accommodate a king-sized bed, two comfortable chairs and a coffee table.  These rooms look out over the gardens. All eleven en suite bathrooms are luxuriously appointed with large double-ended baths and separate shower units. You are sure to appreciate the finishing touches in all of the rooms, too: fresh fruit and flowers, mineral water, fresh milk on the hot drinks tray, fluffy bathrobes and designer toiletries by Gilchrist & Soames. Our beds are topped with duvets wrapped in luxurious Egyptian Cotton covers - if you prefer more traditional sheets and blankets just let us know.  For those mixing business with pleasure, free and unrestricted WiFi access is now available in all rooms, and Ipod docking stations are built into the televisions.  If there is anything else you require – foam pillows instead of feather, for instance – you have only to ask!

Room One

A king-sized bed, deep Victorian red walls, waxed wood panelling and window shutters give this room a very romantic feel.  The unusual layout of the room lends itself to being described as 'Tardis-like'!
