Brilliant location, brilliant hosts, lovely breakfast, will be back-enough said-stay here and you will not be dissapointed. Nothing is too much trouble for these guys.
Bit of extra exercise-have an Indian meal and then climb the stairs! See you again.

I stayed for two nights at Goodwin House whilst hiking in the Lake District. Liz and Chris could not have been more helpful, friendly, and obliging during my stay - they worked really hard to fit me in after I accidentally booked the wrong weekend, and Liz provided me with a packed breakfast for an early start one morning and a very tasty vegetarian cooked breakfast for the next day. I stayed in a room with a king-size bed one night and a single room the next. Both were really comfy and clean with nice-smelling soap and shampoo in the small en-suite bathrooms. Overall I'd really recommend Goodwin House and I will definitely be staying here again on my next visit to Keswick.

Laurie we were so happy that you were able to stay with us last weekend even if it did require a bit of juggling. Hope you enjoyed your epic weekend though sad I’m sure you weren’t able to appreciate the comfy bed with those early starts. We would love to see you again at Goodwin House and hope you visit us again. Liz & Chris

We stayed for several days here while exploring Keswick and environs. The location is outstanding for reaching both local hikes and the town centre, but what really made our stay was how warm, knowledgeable, and sincere Liz and Chris were. They answered all of our (very vague) requests for advice with great suggestions, and the breakfast was delicious each day. The room was clean and well-appointed, and we appreciate especially their dedication to running an eco-friendly establishment. It's clear that they love the area and its beauty, and it's hard not to follow their lead! We'd stay here again in a heartbeat and recommend it without any reservation.

I had three night stay in a single room at Goodwin House and I loved it. The room was very clean. My en suite was very clean also with a huge variety of really nice smelling soap, shampoo, body wash dispensers.The towels were luxurious and fresh smelling. The bed was very comfortable and also had a very fresh crisp feel. The hosts, Liz & Chris are very welcoming without being insincere. They were knowledgeable and keen to offer advice on the area. I really liked their attention to detail Toffees in the hall. A biscuit jar in the bedroom. And the breakfast was just perfect, using good quality local produce. The bacon was excellent. And poached eggs and mushrooms were cooked to perfection. Quality cereals and home made Granola. Home made jam & marmalade, and a fresh fruit & greek yoghurt selection which was absolutely beautiful. I hope Liz & Chris enjoy running such a nice place as Goodwin House, because they're very good at it.
