We choose Overwater Hall for our wedding as we absolutely loved the character of the place and the friendliness of Angela, Stephen, Adrian and the rest of the staff. If you are looking for a perfect venue for a smaller wedding (we had 30 guests) Overwater is highly recommended. We looked around north Cumbria but couldn’t find anything as unique as Overwater. There are plenty of hotels that do weddings but we wanted something that didn’t feel like a hotel (a lot of the other venues shove you into a back conference room). Overwater is different as it offers you exclusive use of the venue for 24 hours so you don’t have the intrusion of strangers on your special day. For a fixed price you get so much – the venue for 24 hours, including the 11 bedrooms, a five course wedding breakfast, the wedding flowers, a free bar and the excellent attention of the Overwater staff.
Having exclusive use of Overwater provided real intimacy for our wedding. It really felt as though we were guests in a country home. We had photo’s taken down by Bassenthwaite lake and the whole venue provides fabulous photo opportunities both inside and out.
All of our guests were impressed with the venue and the rooms – each room is immaculately presented and feels much more homely than a standard room. Each bedroom is unique with huge bathrooms, each with separate bath and shower. Planning our wedding couldn’t have been easier – Angela and Stephen will be as involved as you want them to be and Adrian sat down with us to create our own special wedding breakfast. The food at Overwater is stunning. Overall a perfect place for a small family wedding.
