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 2010

Why Chris Goodwin chose Keswick

When we first walked into the Gables and the Studio our response was WOW and three years on we still love it, so please come and stay here and see if it Wows you as well. It is 100 yards from central Keswick, but is still very calming. The Gable and the Studio are in central Keswick and sleep up to 18 people (14 in the Gables and upto 4 in the Studio)

What makes this house unique

It is the only property in central Keswick which has a large rear Garden and it even has a slate bed pool table in the dining room! The Houses are big enough to disappear in and still find your own space.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Excellent base for a weekend with friends

  • 5 of 5

The property was accurately described, spacious, comfortable, clean and well equipped. Several guests commented on how comfortable the beds were. As a group of old friends who came together via playing rugby at school we enjoyed the ability to all watch the Six Nations games in the downstairs lounge. It would be impossible to improve on its location in relation to the facilities of central Keswick. It is just on the edge of the centre, with a good range of pubs and restaurants within five minutes' walk. As must be expected in such a central location, parking is limited immediately outside The Gables, (one dedicated space on the premises and overnight/two hour daytime very close by), but the welcome letter does explain this and gives guidance on where to find unlimited on street parking from 100 yards away.

Despite indifferent weather, we enjoyed the Derwentwater launch to Lodore, the Falls, lunch in the very nicely refurbished Lodore Hotel, and a walk back around Derwentwater to Hawse End landing stage. Also Honister Mine tour, lunch in the Fish and the Bridge at Buttermere and the lovely drive back over Newlands Hause followed by a late afternoon walk from Underskiddaw car park onto Latrigg for what must be one of the best Lakeland views for a very small effort!

We are intending to return to the Gables in 2018.

Good access to downtown and park areas

  • 4 of 5

1 block from the downtown area and a few doors from the river. Good access, nice rooms and bathrooms. Would be a great base location for a group of friends looking to enjoy the Lake District

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted for nothing during our stay in this well equipped, beautiful, character property, views of the hills, a stones throw from the river and centrally located in this beautiful town. You only need yourself, your boots and your coat. The property does everything else! A lovely, comfy night's sleep in beautiful surroundings!

Fantastic House in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a fantastic location within a minutes walk of the town centre. The house has every possible want, a great lounge and kitchen as well as decent sized garden even with a BBQ on hand. All of the bedrooms and bathrooms are in good condition, clean and with everything you would expect and need. Will definitely be booking again, highly recommended.
