Guest Feedback and Testimonials

Feedback is of utmost importance to us here at Unique Home Stays, and we love to hear back from our guests to ensure that we have not only fulfilled, but exceeded their expectations every step of the way. But don't just take our word for it, read what previous guests have said about The Osprey below:

The view and location of Lake Windermere is very special to us after getting engaged on the lake last summer. Just being near the water is so relaxing and beautiful to us. The house and it┤s stylish decor really appealed to us when we saw the photos, and made such an impression. The views were stunning and the boathouse definitely went on our Wishlist. We enjoyed a relaxing, enchanting experience at the Osprey and woke up each day to the most beautiful and serene landscape, with a very special visiting swan surprising us on our first morning as we sipped our coffee on the balcony. She enjoyed her bread and visited again most mornings. She made our last evening there even more special by surprising us at sunset as we watched the sun disappear. This was her only sunset visit so she must have known! We loved the views from every room in the house. The massive & majestic kitchen/dining room window was filled with greenery; stunning, peaceful and private. A magical experience for us and it will be with us forever.

They children enjoyed it so much! They left a note for Lisa and would like to thank the owners for allowing them to come and stay with their son. They were very lucky that they got the boat in, but it was very snug getting it in. Ferry Nab was great to get their boat in and then they sailed down.

The Osprey exceeded our expectations. It was one of those rare moments in life where the pictures and our pre-conceived thoughts don┤t do it justice. Such a fabulous location, you just have to sit back and soak it up! We will definitely be going back!

The lakeside location matched by the high quality property is superb. The housekeeper is outstanding in her presentation of the property and her warm welcome, we´re looking forward to our fourth stay next year!

Going to sleep with the waves lapping under the boathouse was a real feature for us, as well as being picked up for a day of sailing from our own jetty too.

Photographs of The Osprey showed it to be stunning. The layout, furnishings, standards and location looked excellent. The website really did do the property justice and was everything it said it would be.

The Osprey was utterly fabulous and provided all the rest and relaxation that we were looking for. The property was finished to a very high standard, we could not find any fault and would highly recommend it.

Lisa the housekeeper was very helpful and welcoming. The property was immaculate and the interior and views were even more stunning than the pictures on the website.

The Osprey is an outstanding property in an outstanding location. It┤s beautifully decorated and exceeded our expectations in every way. We received a very warm (and useful) welcome from Lisa the housekeeper. We┤ll almost certainly return to The Osprey.

Unique location and just the right size! It was the personal touches that made the difference such as fresh flowers, a birthday card signed by the owners and being personally met by the housekeeper.

Everything was perfect including the welcome and help provided by the housekeeper Lissa.

As well as the stunning lakeside location the standard of accommodation, views and privacy were perfect. So good that we┤ve already booked for a week next year! The housekeeper was just brilliant. She was available to welcome us and explain everything and her attention to detail in preparing the property for our stay was second to none.

We had a brilliant week at The Osprey,and won´t hesitate to make another booking with Unique Home Stays in the future. Thanks for all of your help.

This was our first booking with Unique Home Stays and we could not fault a thing, from Clare our property advisor to Lisa who welcomed us at the property, everything made the whole holiday very special and memorable. The Osprey is an outstanding property, and we would like to thank the owners and Unique Home Stays for giving us the opportunity to stay there.

A special property and location to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Just wonderful in every way! Absolutely stunning property - infact we still can´t stop talking about it! Excellent customer care and service from Unique Home Stays. Very impressive portfolio of holiday properties, have been so spoiled now, can´t see us booking with any other company but yours in the near future. Many, many thanks to you all.

Just wonderful, the property and the location made for a perfect short break. The housekeeper couldn┤t have been more helpful.

We wanted to treat ourselves for a birthday celebration and it was a special place. We are already thinking of coming again!! We thought it was all wonderful and had been converted to a very high standard!

We had a great time! Absolutely amazing! It was quite snowy and so beautiful

Absolutely superb! Unbelievably good property, the level of the fittings are of a very high standard. Very impressed with the house and the Unique Home Stays booking procedure, would love to book again

One of the nicest houses I┤ve ever stayed in - the quality far exceeded my expectations, a weekend to remember!

It was absolutely super, we met with the owner and could not stop raving about the place

I´d just like to say a huge thank you for what has been one of the most memorable few days of our lives. You have created an environment as close to heaven as it gets! Every detail makes this place like home from home. We are all going into 2013 fully re-vitalised and with big smiles on our faces thanks to you guys. We will 100% be back and please don´t tell too many people about this place as we´ll never be able to get back in! So you know, i think we left this place three times in six days as it makes you not want to go anywhere. This is all testimony to what you have created so from the bottom our hearts thank you!!
