The Location - Overton is a peaceful historic fishing village situated at the mouth of the river Lune. It is close enough to Heysham, Morecambe and Lancaster to allow easy access to the amenities situated there but far enough away to allow for peaceful living. Overton is well placed for access to Heysham Bypass and with the extension of the link road connecting to the M6 now complete, road links for commuters have greatly improved. There are countryside walks on offer here and the cycle path out of Lancaster has also been extended along the Lune and a bus service serves the village. The village school St Helen's C of E primary school is very well thought of and in recent years has attracted young families to the area. There is a 17th century Inn called The Globe in the village, from which a one mile tidal road runs to the ancient Sunderland Point.

Property Overview - If you are looking for a unique home in the centre of a village, full of character and history; your search ends here.
