My partner and I plus our two dogs have just spent a week at a lodge ( third time ) at Skiddaw View Holiday Park , which is close to Overwater Hall. We have stayed at Overwater Hall (See previous review) and both myself and my partner think that this has got to be one of the finest hotels in...

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at Overwater Hall and very much appreciated the attentive management and staff, the high quality of food and comfort all set within a luxurious and relaxing environment, topped off by the wonderful natural setting and surroundings in which the hotel is situated.

It takes some driving down narrow country lanes – the last one not in the best of repair, by-the-way – to get to this well-hidden, grand old two-storey manor house north of Keswick. But the winding roads are well worth the trouble. First, the parking on-site is enough for all guests – unlike some other English inns. Then there are...

If you want to get away from it all in the Lake District, in peaceful, elegant surroundings with excellent food and service then you can find no better place. Dogs are genuinely welcome with suitable quick walks in the grounds, not forgetting it is within easy distance of good fell walking. The room was very comfortable with an immaculately clean...

Right from the greeting as we entered and were shown our delightful room, the carrying of our luggage upstairs and downstairs to said room, we knew we had come to the right place for 3 days of R&R. The ambiance, delicious meals and amazing service, all created an atmosphere of country charm not seen in too many places around the...

A perfect Georgian House set in its own grounds and off the tourist trail. So many places say they welcome dogs and then charge at least £10 a night! There are no such charges here. The grounds have a lovely woodland walk, dogs can stay by their owners in the bar or hall sitting room and if your dog is...

A very relaxed weekend, wonderful service, amazing staff who were very friendly - nothing felt like too much trouble. Food was of an exceptionally high standard - the best lobster I have ever tasted! Recommend ordering a Singapore sling cocktail...... Monty dog was made to feel welcome, the board walk through the woodlands was beautiful. So enjoyed it, have booked...

The moment you arrive you are welcomed. The suites are excellent and you couldn't want for anything. The food was fantastic as was the service. All the staff seem to be relaxed and have time to talk. We enjoyed our stay here very much. The location maybe out of the way for some enjoying the Lake District but for us...

This was our second stay at Overwater, the first being four years ago, and once again we weren't disappointed. Difficult to find fault, lovely room, superb food, a very friendly welcome with attentive staff throughout, and a hotel that genuinely welcomes dogs rather than putting up with them. A lovely, peaceful setting to re-charge the batteries. Go soon, you'll love...

Stayed here with my husband as a romantic getaway. Was lovely that we were able to bring the dog - she was welcome and thoroughly enjoyed the woodland walk around the hotel. We hadn't initially planned to eat at the hotel (not sure our doggy would behave if left alone in the room) but took the chance and were really...
