A Stylish Studio Just 5 Minutes from Lake Windermere

Osprey is one of 6 brand new studio apartments in the heart of Bowness on Windermere, named after the original builder and his beloved Steam Boats which sailed on Lake Windermere.

Bowness is an eclectic mix for all tourists having gentle strolls to the lake in 10 minutes, small hikes from the door up Brantfell and School Knott and a variety of restaurants from Henrock by Simon Rogan, Gilpin Spice and the family-run Brown Horse at Winster just a 10-minute drive away. Osprey has the added benefit of a private parking space making it a perfect location to explore by car or foot.

    Great place, super clean and great location

    Very clean and updated apartment! Nice little touches to help me feel welcome for my week long stay. Right by a bus stop and great location! I’d recommend this stay to anyone!

  • Alice says:

    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.

  • Laurentiu says:

    Really nice flat close to touristic attractions.

  • Oliver says:

    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.

  • Jane & Andrew says:

    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.

  • Florence says:

    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.

  • Bruce & Mirlinda says:

    Lovely flat super location. Spent the week visiting different towns and lovely countryside locations for walks and views. Something for all. A very relaxing holiday. Highly recommended.

  • Siobhan says:

    Perfect flat in the perfect location in Bowness. Lovely quiet street within walking distance of the boating pier and Peter Rabbit attraction (perfect for little kids). Plenty of restaurants and things to do nearby.

  • Nicholas Baines says:

    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.

  • Joyce and Steve says:

    Absolutely gorgeous apartment, we stay in Bowness every year, this is our best so far.
    Location is ideal just a walk down to the Lake.
    Thank you for the fabulous facilities in this apartment, we will be back!

  • Kayleigh says:

    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.

  • Ellie says:

    Lovely flat in a great location!

  • Emma says:

    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!

  • Thomas Mathew says:

    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.

  • Robert says:

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