Overwater Lodge was built at the turn of the 20th century as one of a pair of cottages for Overwater Hall. This three bedroomed semi-detached cottage has so much to offer as a delightful holiday retreat. With stunning views towards Skiddaw from most rooms, large south facing cottage garden and adjoining woodland. Overwater Lodge is perfect for adults and children alike, with space to relax and play.
Situated 3 miles north east of Bassenthwaite Lake, the area is perfect for walking, cycling and relaxing. The Reiver cycleway passes the cottage. Two bridleways lead alongside to Binsey Fell, Skiddaw and the Cumbrian Way. Overwater tarn is just a 2-minute walk.

With an abundance of bird life, the occasional red squirrel and deer, Overwater Lodge enjoys a truly tranquil location.
