Welcome to

Overwater Hall

This hidden treasure is set in 18 acres of formal gardens and woodland with the dramatic backdrop of Skiddaw and the Uldale Fells. The hotel offers the perfect base for a truly relaxing holiday in the peaceful surroundings of the undiscovered northern Lake District.

Your hosts, Stephen Bore, and Angela and Adrian Hyde, bought this magnificent Grade 2 listed Georgian country house in 1992, and have spent the past 30 years lovingly refurbishing it, paying great attention to detail, and successfully preserving the historic ambience of the house with a clever mix of traditional and contemporary style. The end result is a tasteful, colourful and refined luxury hotel.

When planning your break with us, it might help you to know that we close on Mondays and Tuesdays throughout the year (with one or two exceptions!).  Why not take a look at our booking calendar or call us for more details.
