Simply Stunning! This is a beautifully presented Visit Britain 5 star Gold Award cottage with fabulous views over Scandale Beck and the surrounding countryside, and a mere 7 minute level walk into the centre of Ambleside with its many shops, restaurants and bars. We are pleased to announce that Overbeck won the prestigious Red Rose Award for Service Excellence 2018 – and well deserved.
Furnished to a high standard with stylish and luxurious interior decor, Overbeck is an idyllic retreat with a series of fabulous fell and lakeside walks being available from the doorstep. The Fairfield Horseshoe, Wansfell, Loughrigg, Red Screes, Rydal Water and Grasmere to name but a few.
Don’t fancy such energetic pursuits? Relax with a glass of wine 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.
