Several months ago we completed an online booking to be able to send my partners parents away to celebrate their anniversary. No payment was taken, after unanswered phone calls and emails we decided to take the booking elsewhere. Peculiarly yesterday we received an email to say the room was reserved, and that no payment had been made. My partner sent...

What a pity. I note that we corresponded on eight separate occasions since the time of your original booking. I can only apologise if we missed a call from you. We are sorry that your parents did not get to enjoy our hospitality on their very special anniversary and hope that they had a wonderful day. With kind regards Angela...

we had 4 days in late july and the total experience from the initial booking process, to the welcome and the stay was excellent. The gardens are gorgeous. Our upstairs corner room was spacious with room for clothes to be put away. Touring advice was provided including the loan of maps. Meals were an occasion and the food was very...

My husband and I booked dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary. From the moment we got out of the car to the moment we got back into the car our evening was sublime! We were greeted by name at the front door and shown into the sitting room where a drinks order was taken, we were given menus and some...

Fabulous hotel set in their own beautiful grounds with the stunning Lakeland mountains behind. The décor is just how you would expect a country house hotel to be and a lot of thought has gone into the decoration, fixtures and fittings. The hotel owners and staff were very friendly and did everything possible to ensure our stay was tailor made...

Acres of private woodland and grounds, large opulent rooms with views over the gardens and fells, perfect service and award winning cuisine. What more do you want? If you want to relax and get away from it all or use it as a base for exploring the Northern Lakes, this is the place. Chef proprietor and his team are obviously...

Set in spectacular mountain landscape, Overwater exudes peaceful grace and just slightly faded grandeur. The interior style probably needs updating soon but the place overall is charming, very comfortable and spotless- this is somewhere to retreat to and relax. There's very limited 3G or broadband connection and that's about right since the place is about recharging and stepping off. The...

My wife and I have just spent five nights at this hotel as our base whilst we explored the Lake District. It is simply a wonderful place. We were made very welcome and had complete relaxation during our visit. We had dinner in the hotel on our first night only but that was because we wanted to make the most...

We usually stay here, but last night was "just" a meal with two friends. The evening began by sampling Luke's cocktails. I went for the non-alcoholic Lemon Cheesecake. Taste bud explosion! The most difficult part was deciding what to eat, words cannot adequately describe the taste, texture, presentation etc etc. Try it! Our friends were first timers, but I know...

This is a real gem! Beautiful and peaceful location, great range of walks from the hotel, well furnished and maintained period rooms and excellent cuisine.
