Sustaining Keswick: Goodwin House’s Commitment to Local Producers and Communities

At Goodwin House, we strive to create a bed and breakfast experience that’s not only memorable for our guests, but also supportive of our local community and environment. Our commitment to sustainability and supporting local businesses is evident in the products and services we offer, demonstrating our belief in the power of a thriving, supportive community.

A cornerstone of our ethos is the close relationship we share with many local producers. From our breakfast table to our guest amenities, we source as much as possible from our local partners, ensuring that your stay with us also contributes to supporting the wider Keswick community.

Take a bite of our toast topped with jams and conserves from Wild & Fruitful, a local business established on the picturesque Lingholm Estate across Derwentwater. Sip on a comforting cup of tea or indulge in a delicious biscuit from Penningtons, another local supplier hailing from Kendal. Even your morning shower at Goodwin House is a locally sourced experience, with luxury vegan toiletries from Pure Lakes.

No breakfast at Goodwin House would be complete without our Cumberland sausages, sourced from Harrison’s family butcher in Cockermouth, the proud home of this Cumbrian specialty. We also serve free-range eggs from Scales Farm in Embleton, where the hens have the luxury of roaming freely. These relationships not only ensure that we provide our guests with the highest quality food and products, but also allow us to contribute to the sustainability of our community.

We firmly believe in the strength of communities that support each other, and we’re proud to do our part in fostering these relationships. By choosing to stay with us, you’re not only embarking on a memorable visit to Keswick, but you’re also playing a role in sustaining the vibrant community that makes this area so special. At Goodwin House, you’re not just our guest — you’re part of our community.
