A lovely well appointed cottage

Simply Stunning! This beautifully presented Visit Britain 5 star Gold Award cottage has fabulous views over Scandale Beck and the surrounding countryside. Overbeck  consistently wins accolades from Visit Britain and has won the prestigious Red Rose Award for Service Excellence.

Furnished to a high standard with stylish and luxurious interior decor, Overbeck is an idyllic retreat for up to four people with some fabulous fells and lakeside walks available from the doorstep; Fairfield Horseshoe, Wansfell, Loughrigg, Red Screes, Rydal Water and Grasmere to name but a few.

A mere seven minute level walk leads you right into the heart of  the bustling town of Ambleside, a popular tourist resort offering a diverse range of eateries from picnic takeaways to a Michelin starred restaurant. It boasts three cinemas, gift shops, outdoor clothing stores, hotels, cafes and a park with outdoor activities. Of course England’s largest lake is on the doorstep with all the fun of a variety of watersports, cruises and a great place to just sit and watch the world go by.

Don’t fancy such energetic pursuits? Relax with a refreshing drink in the extensive garden (don’t forget to watch out for the deer), stroll into Ambleside or saunter to the lake for a blissful cruise on Windermere. Overbeck has everything you need for a luxury Lakeland holiday.

Wander down the paved path to enter via the good sized underfloor heated porch with ample space for all manner of walking clobber. Incidentally, the compass tiles on the floor are accurate!

The porch offers access into the stunning, bright and beautifully furnished lounge with vaulted beam ceiling, comfortable 3 piece suite, 40″ flat screen T.V. and DVD, contemporary living flame gas fire as well as underfloor heating and idyllic views over Scandale Beck. Large french doors open onto the delightful tiered garden with table and chairs on the patio.

Up a couple of steps out of the lounge and enter the dining room with a family sized solid oak dining table and chairs, along with a matching side cabinet containing Wi-Fi, CD and radio, and a selection of games and jigsaws. This room also overlooks the beck and opens into the well-equipped, fully fitted, modern kitchen with granite worktops, high quality Bosch appliances and American style fridge / freezer. Also on this floor is a separate W.C.

Down the stairs to the quirky small hall which splits the two substantial and beautifully designed double bedrooms, both with luxurious Hypnos King sized beds (one of them is a zip and link – please stipulate if twin is required at time of booking), side tables, dressing tables containing hairdryers and wall mounted flat screen T.V.s. One of the bedrooms is en-suite containing bath and power shower. The large stylish and contemporary master bathroom with underfloor heating, separate bath and walk in power shower, continues the sumptuous feel of the downstairs accommodation.

Also downstairs is an underfloor heated utility/drying room, which contains the boiler along with separate washer and dryer.

Due to the layout of Overbeck, the property is not suitable for children under the age of seven. Please note this is a no pet property.
