    “It is a lovely cottage in a great location.”

    - Mrs Mclachrie, August 2020

The property

Old Codger’s Cottage is a characterful, Victorian terrace in the heart of the bustling town of Windermere.

Originally built to house the workers on the Windermere railway line, the property is one of the oldest houses in the village.

Just a few strides away from all of the town attractions, this cottage makes a perfect, cosy hideaway for a visit to the Lakes.

The comfortable sitting room centres around the fireplace, which creates a lovely ambience, the ideal place to relax with the family, after a day on the hills or even the shops!

A selection of DVDs, CDs, a Smart TV and a music system complete this delightful room, offering a whole evening of entertainment.

A well-equipped kitchen/diner boasts a lovely space to cook and eat, giving you access to the private yard with chairs and a table to relax with your morning tea or evening tipple.

Upstairs, there are two peaceful double bedrooms and a modern shower room finished to a good standard of quality.

With being in such a handy location, the delights of the Lake District are on your door step.

Whether it’s the Bridge House in Ambleside or the Gingerbread shop in Grasmere, you are sure to find something to tickle your fancy.

While visiting, why not hop on one of the many pleasure cruises on the Lake or enjoy an hour of pitch and put in Bowness all while soaking in the magnificent views and panoramas.

You also have access to many National Trust properties, as well as woodland and countryside walking trails.

Old Codgers Cottage offers a revitalising break to the Lake District.
