About Chris Goodwin

We have been coming to the Lakes for the last 30 years and now work in the area and believe in putting as much back into the local community as possible by helping promote the local tourism industry to all of our clients and guests across all of our businesses, which helps create a sustainable Keswick.

Chris Goodwin purchased this house in 2012

Why Chris Goodwin chose Keswick & North Lakes

We have been coming to the Lake District now for 20 years as a family as well with friends and there is not much that we have not done over this time, but every time we revisit we are always amazed at our next adventure.

There are plenty of things to do for all ages, from shopping and sampling the local cafes, restaurants and pubs, to enjoying tennis, bowls and putting in Fitz Park close by. The park also has swings, slides etc for younger children and plenty of green space for football, cricket and such like.

Keswick Leisure Pool is next to the park where one can swim, use the fitness suite or join in an exercise class

There are a few small museums and art galleries in Keswick also.

In and around the area, you can also play golf, go horse riding and there are several activity centres for archery, clay pigeon shooting etc and Go Ape, in Whinlatter Forest Park. Take your pick, but this is not an exhaustive list.

Canoeing

Derwent Water

We have great memories of canoeing as a family on Derwent Water and fishing off the Boat, visiting the Islands and camping overnight or just visiting the opposite shore for a picnic.

Buttermere

We used take the canoe to a great beach from Gatesgarth end and have a picnic and play on the shoreline when the kids were small, but it’s a great place for all ages, using the canoe allowed us to take all the gear where as the only other way to get there is to walk.

Crummock

Fishing for deepwater Char, over 100 feet down, great tasting fish and then barbecuing them on the shore on a summers evening.

So much more than we hoped!

  • 5 of 5

When booking any house on a self-catering basis self-catering, there is always some worry about the location/condition/size of the property. On this holiday, we had know need to worry. From the moment we walked through the front door, our impression was one of warmth, comfort and a welcoming feeling.

The condition of the furnishings and fittings was really good and showed that a lot of attention to detail had gone into making sure that the accommodation was appealing and useful. This holiday was a special occasion and the owners succeeded in making it even more so.

Cute house, great location

  • 5 of 5

Grand old gaff but tastefully modernised to add all the creature comforts. Clean and comfortable with all the required equipment. A stone's throw from Keswick.

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely beautiful, and closely situated to Keswick's town centre, which was also stunning.

It's just a few minutes's walk away from town, and ten minutes to Derwent Water, which was lovely to walk around with plenty for kids to do.

We were a party of nine adults and three kids, and the house was spacious, beautifully appointed and clearly well kept. I suspect that this might be a hidden gem we return to year after year. Highly, highly recommended.
