A luxury spacious home from home in Bowness

  • 5 of 5
Osprey Boat House was a perfect place to stay for a family of 5 (could have been 6 - it has 6 beds). The place is spacious, very well furnished, comfortable and with the major feature of a balcony with comfy seating looking over the lake Windermere. Helen was a very accomodating host. We suggested a butter dish - she had one over within hours. We had forgotten our iPad charger - she had one over within minutes.
We certainly want to stay there again.

Fabulous Stay

  • 5 of 5
I booked this accomodation to stay with my two boys during the Easter Break - my parents joined us and we had a wonderful time. The accomodation was fabulous, a real luxuary treat for everyone, the owner Helen, was brilliant, really friendly and helpful. The boys had a fantastic time - very safe environment to let them have some freedom exploring and only a roll down the hill on our bikes to the ferry crossing - wonderful weather allowed us to make the most of the balcony area and enjoy life on the lake and the beautiful surroundings. We will definately return again in the future. Thank you.

Great house in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5
We were delighted with the Osprey Boat House, which was absolutely perfect for our week in the Lake District. Among its strengths are great position right on the lake with fantastic views from the terrace and the living room, very near the ferry for good cycling (and conveniently right next door to kayak and bike rental!), nice off-road walk into Bowness, lovely interior, very clean, everything works. We loved it!

Perfect holiday accomodation

  • 5 of 5
Perfect holiday accommodation in the Lake District! Osprey House looks small from the outside but inside provides excellent comfortable, spacious accommodation for 6. It is exceptionally warm, well equipped and tastefully furnished. It is very well situated for visiting Ullswater and Coniston and has a stunning view of Windermere. My worries about being situated on the road to the ferry were totally unfounded as it is tucked away so there is no noise of traffic from the ferry road. It just makes it very convenient to hop on the ferry!
We had a wonderful few days walking and cycling.
Thoroughly recommended!

A very beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5
Booking holidays in a boathouse? Well... it's the most beautiful boathouse we've seen so far, although I must admit, that there are not too many boathouses in Switzerland. We spent one week in this lovely place. The building has oviously been refurbished to a very high standard. The house is tastefully decorated - on our arrival we even found a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers on the living room table - very nice indeed! Having a glass of wine on the balcony, overlooking lake windermere, the trees with their autumn foliage, watching the ferry and all the other boats definitely brings the holiday mood. Even the weather was mostly very "un british", meaning on the sunny side... we'd love to come back one day!
