A wonderful welcome from Marion, a spacious and comfortable room and useful drying room (nb. we were in The Lake District after all!) and delicious breakfasts. Within easy walking distanceof the delightful town. Great attention paid to detail - we would certainly recommend.

There is a reason for this - Keswick is, of course, a wonderful location and the Goodwin House offers the best possible B and B experience. They are very welcoming, the rooms are spotless and the breakfasts are outstanding. Marion always adds little touches...

Second visit here. Marion could not have been more accomodating. After leaving a disappointing cottage at Troutbeck booked through Sally's Cottages we were very fortunate to get a room at Goodwin house for the remainder of our holiday. Rooms very comfortable and exceptionally clean. Fab breakfast. Great location. Hospitality perfect. Would thoroughly recommend.
