A well equipped apartment right in Bowness on Windermere, surrounded by pubs and cafes etc. Great location to spend a weekend.

The place is stunning and it is very cosey, perfect for a stay in The Lakes. Recommendations of where to go were left for us which was very helpful. Great location for Bowness and Windermere.

Michelle’s place in Bowness was a perfect base to explore Windermere and the surrounding areas. Excellent spec flat with everything you need and perfect distance from Bowness as you can just walk 10 minutes down the hill and you’re right in town. Would love to stay again one day!

Excellent well looked after property. Few minutes downhill walk into Bowness. Ten to fifteen minutes walk to Windermere. Worth the few minutes walk from Bowness to Windermere Jetty museum to sit more quietly by the lake. Also from centre of Windermere the walk down Birthwaite road to a quieter waterfront. Great coffee and brunch at Homeground coffee. Also don’t forget a great coffee at The Rookery next to Booths

Fabulous flat to stay in. Near all the amenities but quiet location. The flat is exactly as the photos but the quality of the kitchen, bathroom etc was outstanding. Michelle also had a nice wee bottle of bubbly awaiting us on arrival and all the essentials such as tea bags, sugar, coffee, pods, and dishwasher tablets were there as standard. It was such a lovely holiday and made extra special by this lovely accommodation. The easy check in made life. Very easy and a nice start to our holiday. We arrived, unpacked and got on with our adventure. Would highly recommend Michelle place and will definitely book again.

A lovely apartment and perfect base for exploring The Lake. We have so much more to see here. Loved the free parking for dragging muddy hiking stuff up and the hall to hide it all away.

We have had such a wonderful weekend in Bowness. The apartment is a home from home and somewhere we will certainly visit again! We enjoyed a gorgeous walk up to Orrest Head and down to Ambleside. We walked up to the waterfalls then enjoyed some lunch, returning back to Bowness via steamboat. The Magic Roundabout in Bowness is lovely for food and gorgeous cocktails. Urban Food House, lovely for breakfast. However, you cant go wrong, we have not been disappointed in anyway since arriving. Lovely village, stunning views, friendly people, perfect apartment. Thank you, so much for sharing Karen + Paul. To everyone reading this, we hope you have a fabulous time! Kellie & Michael.

What's not to love! Location, parking, amenities, such a beautiful apartment. We are regular visitors to the area & over time found that we preferred the freedom an apartment gives. This apartment has everything, thank you Karen + Paul, you do have a gorgeous place, stunning. House of Siam - Fantastic Thai food Mela - best curry house Hole in't Wall - great pub, staff & a proper pint. Want to go out & about, jump on the 599 bus & get a day rider. You can visit Grasmere, Ambleside + Keswick, using this ticket all day. Plus the bus stop is on the main road at the end of the street. Thank you, S+G

Michelle was extremely friendly and helpful from the get go. The place was perfect for a little get away, warm and homely. Just a 5 minute walk into Bowness for some food and drinks and a 15 minute drive to get into Ambleside the location is perfect for all types of stays. 10 out of 10 would Recommend and will hopefully be staying again.

We have had a lovely week's stay in this beautiful apartment! We both work high pressure jobs in the city, and this trip was the breath of fresh air we needed. If you travel to Ambleside, be sure to walk up to Stock Gyll Waterfalls - stunning. Other hidden gems are surprise view and Easedale Tarn. Thank you for being the perfect base for our adventures!

We had a brilliant stay here. The location was great, an easy 5-10 minute walk to Bowness, and an easy 10-15 minute walk to Windermere. The apartment was clean, cosy and well stocked.

Really nice flat close to touristic attractions.
On Wednesday, 14 Sep 2022
Faultless! The apartment was very easy to find and has its own reserved parking space. Access via a key safe was simple. Inside, everything was spotless and there’s all you’ll need for a short stay. Comfortable bed and sofa and there’s a modern TV with all the up to date apps (Netflix, Prime etc). Very short (5 minute) walk to the shops/restaurants and a couple of minutes further to Lake Windermere. Highly recommended.

Had the most amazing relaxing week in Bowness. Osprey apartment is absolutely stunning and we couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you for a wonderful week and we will defo be booking again for later in the year. Karen and Paul you should be really proud of such a lovely apartment.
On Wednesday, 07 Sep 2022
I have had a wonderful week here! The flat is well presented and is very close to the lake and bus stops. Strongly recommend Sam's cafe restaurant I have had their Pad Thai and Thai milk tea there. For nearby attractions I would recommend Rydal Cave, Grasmere and Keswick they are all easy to get to by bus 555 or 599.Rydal Cave, nice hiking route, wonderful view of Rydal Water.Grasmere, Dove Cottage is worth visiting and gingerbread there is really nice. There are also plenty of shops.Keswick, Derwent Pencil Museum is very interesting. Derwent Water is one of the most beautiful lakes I have ever seen. Spending a whole afternoon on that lake would be nice.Very pleasing stay here and I would definitely come back again.

We had a wonderful 5 day stay at Windermere and Bowness enhanced by the superb studio apartment 'Osprey'. The accommodation was exactly as advertised and the fixtures and fittings, the detail and the standard of finish is absolutely first class. If you want a quality place to stay in an ideal location, this is it.

Such a beautiful and pristine apartment. Great location, we slept with the windows open and it was so quiet all night. Self check in was very easy, directions were very easy to follow and great communication. Will definitely stay here again.

Lovely flat in a great location!
On Tuesday, 12 Jul 2022
We really enjoyed our stay at Osprey - a beautiful place with excellent facilities. Excellent quiet location and within walking distance to the train station, shops, restaurants and the Lake. We highly recommend the Boardwalk Bar and Grill for both food and drinks, Choccobar for their beautiful hot chocolate, and Windermere Canoe and Kayak for brilliant (and affordable) watersport activities. We wouldn't hesitate to stay at Osprey again in the future, and we've recommended it to friends and family!

Osprey is a lovely flat, extremely well appointed and beautifully decorated. It had everything we wanted and its location is perfect for both walking into Bowness and to Windermere. We used the open-top bus to get around and there are stops only one block from the flat. There are numerous places to eat in the local area and we can especially recommend 'Hooked' on Ellerthwaite Square, Windermere, if you are a seafood lover. We were blessed with some really fine weather so our mini-break staying in Osprey turned out to be a blissful holiday for us.

Incredible place, great location, could not fault it. Anyone that stays there is incredibly luckily.
