Description

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.
The twin towns of Bowness and Windermere are set within the splendid scenery of the Lake District, both providing a range of amenities to suit all tastes. Grizedale Forest Park is within easy driving distance and is home to a range of activities including many good walks, mountain biking and the 'Go Ape' adventure park. The region also boasts many National Trust properties as well as a variety of water sports for those who prefer a more adrenaline-fuelled trip.

‘Both my husband and I travel extensively each year, and one week each year we book a cottage to take my elderly mother in law on a holiday. This year, booking Old Codgers Cottage through Sykes Cottages was a HUGE mistake! I can only assume that some of the ositive reviews praising the cottage have been posted by the owner and friends and family as it is NOT the cottage that we stayed in, as our photos will show! We have also noted that a number of bad reviews have been removed?! Firstly the parking permit is useless as we were only able to park outside the cottage once all week as other permit holders were permanently parked on the street! The cottage was filthy! Filthy windows, filthy garden furniture, filthy toilet brush & holder, stained pillows and divets, rusted microwave, rusted and dirty pans, broken window blind, broken wardrobe, the list goes on and on..... The plates were child sized and there weren't enough pans for cooking, there were only two grotty table placement mats available when the cottage sleeps four. Nowhere to hang wet coats either! The worst part of our stay was the mattresses! They were rock hard and really uncomfortable as reported by previous guests and my poor mother in law aged 79 was so uncomfortable and barely slept all week! We complained to Sykes Cottages and requested compensation towards another holiday, to be informed that even though we booked through Sykes Cottages, they are NOT liable or responsible for anything to do with our stay at the cottage as our contract is with the cottage owner?! The cottage owner has cited wear and tear and dismissed our complaint outright! The owner states that no other tenant had raised issues with Old Codgers Cottage, completely untrue as we found on investigation, however, interestingly most of these negative reviews appear to have disappeared?! We though by booking through a company such as Sykes we would have some come back if things went wrong BUT apparently NOT! Currently Sykes have advised that shud we wish to pursue things further, we will have to involve a third party which we assume is legal representation to communicate with the cottage owner! Look at the photos, photos don't lie. Sykes are still letting this property despite my complaint and other complaints and the cottage also appears on other booking sites. It is clear that the owner is only interested in the money generated from the cottage and couldn't care less about the comfort or quality of stay of guests! It's looking like a trip to the small claims Court for recompense as bad landlords should not be allowed to exploit holiday makers by overcharging for sub standard properties and facilities! If there was an option for zero star that's what we would award! Shocking property & customer service!’
