Ventilation/ leaving windows open is one option. But ultimately you only have condensation on windows and reveals if the relative humidity of the air in your house is too high. So look at the factors that cause this, usually envirometal living factors such as showering and drying clothes indoors etc

There is not enough fresh air getting into the bedroom, one thing is you can leave the window open on night vent or install trickle vents to windows which ensure air flow without leaving your window open.

... Turn down heating, improve ventilation (fit new vents-open trickle vents, open the window a bit), insulate walls , fit double glazing.. mold on walls is horrible and if you dont clean it regular and kill the mold the problem will just get worse and the walls damper + its very unhealthy. wipe the walls with bleach solution or get a mold killer and keep on top of the problem

Have you got trickle vents in your windows?

To minimise condensation you will have to maximize vantilation , Keep a fresh air flow 24/7 and use your heating wisely.Your windows need to breath give them some air .
