Overton Bank House was a great place to stay for a large family gathering. It's well equipped and our boys particularly enjoyed the toys that were there. The standard of refurbishment of the house is high and there are nice touches such as a changing table and plentiful travel cots (although our children were too old to use them).
A really thoughtfully put together holiday rental.
Overton Bank House was the perfect venue for our weekend away.
We were celebrating several birthdays and anniversaries and were a family group of 14.
The house is furnished to a very high standard.
Also lots of tips and information about the area.
The kids loved the dressing up box!!
Kitchen fully equipped and more than adequate to meet the needs of a large party.
The additional "outhouse" with its beer/wine fridge was very useful.
The rear garden is absolutely lovely.
We would definitely recommend staying at OBH.
Also the booking process is very straight forward.
Thank you for a lovely weekend.
This was our third visit to Overton Bank house and it didn't let us down. The kids loved playing around the house and especially with the dressing up box! The house was cosy and warm all weekend (much appreciated after a couple of snowy walks). The kitchen is so well equipped and we love being able to sit everyone around one table for Sunday lunch.
This a great house for a family or friends get-together and hopefully we'll be back in 2018.
Trying to find a venue that caters for an extended (14) family Christmas including grandparents and 6 kids under 8, is not easy, but Overton Bank House does it with ease, and comfort. There is plenty of sitting area space, a wonderful dining area that genuinely can accommodate large numbers, a back garden that is perfect to let the kids out for a play, and bedrooms that allow you to be very comfortable and with enough separation that you don't feel like one sleepless child will cause the whole household to have a bad night!
The whole OBH experience is just easy: from the booking right through until departure, everything is thought of and taken care of, and any query is only a phone call / email away and promptly answered.
The owners are very kind and thoughtful and instead of the minimum, they really understand setting up a house like this for their guests. It would seem that they have approached preparing the house in a "now what would we want/need/have to have, if we were staying here a week" attitude and it shows: there are plenty of towels, blankets, appliances are modern and in excellent condition, and WiFi is easy to use and strong throughout the property.
The actual house is perfect and really does allow for self catering for large parties / families: we cooked Christmas dinner for 14 comfortably with enough pots, plates, glasses and cutlery to spare. And their Welcome Hamper is a personal and generous touch that just makes it feel like you are coming home.
You could say that the accommodation is excellent, the level of attention to detail is of a very high standard and it would be true. But, I would sum up OBH as "a truly wonderful place to stay that just works, with ease." It is our second stay and we will be back!
Group of 16, 8 adults and 8 children went here for a weekend. It is the most beautiful accommodation. But more than that the owners have thought of everything. Every little convenience to make your stay a home from home. A basket of basics and treats awaited us on arrival. Including pumpkins, as it was halloween. Every kitchen utensil and appliance is available. Even disposable bbqs to use under the outdoor canopy.
the place was spotlessly clean and the linen and towels fresh and laundered. I cannot recommend this place highly enough and well done to the owners for the time and effort and care they put into their guests enjoyment
