House in Keswick, Lake District, Cumbria, England - 5 Minutes Walk To The Town Centre And Lake
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
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
What makes this House unique
Generously proportioned 5 bedroomed 200 year old Coach House of considerable character with attractive large enclosed private front garden (the Garden is great location for outdoor entertaining).

Brilliant in all areas
Beautiful property, cracking location, literally everything you could possibly require is provided. A true home from home! Couldn't recommend highly enough. Will be back.
Delightful home with a real warm welcoming feel
Stayed 3 nights for daughters 30th birthday, 9 adults, 1 child, 1 baby and 1 small dog. Ample space for everyone and more, great downstairs twin and bathroom for the less agile one, cracking kitchen with everything you could ever need for cooking. Lovely large dining room to get everyone around at meal times and a great lounge to relax in with loads of room to play games/toys with grandkids, beds very comfy, huge bath, only one negative, the shower in the en-suite room with the three single beds did not have very good water pressure, I am sure this is something that could be easily sorted as the water throughout the house was generally good. This house if of some age so expect a squeaky floor board here and there, and single pane windows in some rooms, central heating and fire in lounge both work a treat. Tvs in lounge, dining room and kitchen, none in the bedrooms which didn’t bother us, for those that what it the wifi was excellent. Only a 5 mins walk into town or to the river. This home is a little gem and we all really enjoyed our stay and wouldbook again.
Lovely homely stay at oaklodge very recommended

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