History of the hotel

The name of the present building has changed over the years since it was built. Originally it was called Whitefield House, but in the early part of the last century its name changed to Overwater Hall. In the 1950s it reverted back to the former name, and a decade later it became Overwater Hall once more. “Overwater" refers to the tarn which lies some 500 yards to the northeast.

Child Policy

Children are welcome. There are several rooms large enough to take an extra bed, and the hotel has a cot, a high chair and a baby monitor for guests' use. Please note that children under the age of five are not permitted in the restaurant in the evenings, but a high tea can be arranged earlier in the day if required.

Dogs Policy

Dog owners will be delighted to know that well-behaved dogs are genuinely welcome to stay at Overwater Hall at no extra charge.
Dogs are welcome in bedrooms and in one of the hotel's lounges and bar – no dogs on chairs, though, please!
Cumbria is a walker's paradise at any time of the year, with its spectacular scenery, fells, lakes and gardens, and for all of these reasons, your dog will love it, too.
And there is no reason to even venture beyond the grounds of the hotel with its 18 acres, including our lovely woodland boardwalk.
Overwater Hall is perfect for dogs, on or off the leash.
A dog sitting service can be arranged for one of those rainy days when your four legged friend might not be welcome in that museum or art gallery which you have always wanted to visit.

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.

The Rooms at Overwater Hall

Standard room

Each of the eleven tastefully furnished and decorated bedrooms is different, but all are equipped to the same exacting high standard. 

Standard 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.

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!
