RELAXING RIVERSIDE RETREAT FOR TWO
Situated right on the banks of the River Rothay and a mere 5 minutes level walk from the village centre, Overbeck makes for a superb bolthole for a couple, whatever time of year you choose to visit Ambleside. The sight and sound of water is so soothing and this stretch of the Rothay is home to an abundance of wildlife; herons, ducks and even an otter.
Those water babies among you will enjoy getting into the river from the door and paddling your kayak or paddleboard down to the Lake whilst anglers will please pleased to know that this stretch of water is outside of WADAA control and although an Environmental Agency rod licence is required between the season, 15th March to 30th September, no additional fishing licence is required. Perhaps you’ll catch your own supper!
