Clive Briscoe purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Clive Briscoe chose Bowness & Windermere

My wife and I bought Old Codgers Cottage as we love Windermere and the Lake District, we have spent a lot of time over many years in the area and Old Codgers Cottage is central to everything with an array of shops and restaurants all within easy walking distance. It is easily accessible by road or rail and there is plenty of public transport. We love the beautiful scenery and the peace and tranquillity the lake district has to offer and its amazing how this stunning area of natural beauty seems to change throughout the seasons.

What makes this cottage unique

Old Codgers cottage is a traditional Lakeland stone cottage dating back to the mid 1840's, yet inside it has all the luxuries and comforts you need and still keeps its traditional charm. Parking outside the cottage and walking straight through the front door and right in to the centre of Windermere which is remarkable, Old Codgers Cottage is the most central holiday rental cottage in Windermere. All the shops, pubs, cafes, restaurants and eateries are all within a 300 metre walk from the doorstep. It is in a prime location and many locals don't have this privilege as to park your car right in the centre with a free parking permit.

Cumbria, at the very north of England, is amongst its most beautiful regions. The Lake District National Park has long been celebrated for its mirror lakes and craggy peaks.

There are also an abundance of pretty villages and towns including old-fashioned Keswick, Ambleside and Windermere which boasts Englands largest lake were you can take the ferry to the quaint little village of Hawkshead.

The Lake District is heaven for those who love the outdoors, with sailing, rock climbing, mountain biking and hiking and much more on offer. Local attractions include Hilltop the home were Beatrix Potter wrote her celebrated children's stories, Wray Castle, The National Park Visitor Centre at Brockhole, Lakeside and Haverwaite Steam Railway, The Beatrix Potter Museum and Gallery, Dove Cottage once home to the famous poet William Wordsworth, Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall are to name a few.
