Danni O’Brien

About You

Hi, I’m Danni and I have lived in Keswick pretty much all of my life give or take a couple of years spent away travelling some other beautiful parts of the world. Born here, I cannot see myself living anywhere else now. As I have gotten older, I have appreciated it more and realised just how beautiful my hometown really is, especially having most of my family and friends here too. I spend a lot of time out walking as I have a very active and energised Border Collie called Ragnar with my other half.

Favourite Lake District walk

Our favourite walk is most probably Catbells as you cannot beat the view overlooking Derwentwater and Keswick. Afterwards, you can pit stop at the Swinside for a well-earned pint – bonus!

Go-to spot for food and drink in the Lakes

I enjoy going out with the girls and inhaling Camembert at The Square Orange or eating Tapas and enjoying the great atmosphere at Bar E’s in Keswick. You cannot beat an Amaretto Whiskey Sour and a Pike O’Pickle Burger from The Round either.

Favourite things about living and working in the Lake District

Throughout the lockdown period and being able to get out for fresh air with amazing views wherever you go has been a blessing!

 

Gaynor Anderson

About You

Both my husband and I fell in love with the lakes district about 25 years ago, as soon as we finished work on a Friday we were heading north in our VW camper to go walking or climbing. We eventually decided to up sticks from Manchester and we moved here about 20 years ago and never looked back. Touched every high part of Cumbria and the adjoining Yorkshire dales, just love the landscape, fresh air, salt of the earth people, quieter more relaxed pace of life and we’re so near the sea too, we’ve really got it all. Now we have our 6 year old little boy, Thomas, we love taking him on our outdoor adventures too.

Favourite Lake District walk

There are so many fab walks, my favourite area is the west coast, the dramatic valley of Wasdale but some great walks are just on my doorstep, Brantfell and Wansfell.

Go-to spot for food and drink in the Lakes

I love the variety of places to eat from local pubs, like the Boot Inn Eskdale and their delicious steak and ale pie to the unique and quirky Gilpin Spice near Windermere or the famous Michelin star L’Enclume in Cartmel!

Favourite things about living and working in the Lake District

I’ve dabbled in half marathons, great north swim, and recently triathlons. Wild swimming in the lakes and tarns in summer is just magical with the mountains surrounding you. I’m a real outdoor ambassador for our beautiful UNESCO world heritage status.

 

Steve Rainer

About You

I have lived in the Lake District for 11 years now but have been a very regular visitor since the 1980s as my wife is Windermere born and bred, and her family business is based here. Photography is my thing and especially weather and light, so always odd colours and quite moody. I’m a keen whisky enthusiast and have quite a collection from all over the world.

Favourite Lake District walk

Walking is not my thing due to knee problems, but do manage a stroll around Cockshott Point every now and then.

Go-to spot for food and drink in the Lakes

Homeground in Windermere, the best ‘posh’ breakfasts in town!

Favourite things about living and working in the Lake District

Even in the hustle of the Lake District life, this is still relatively peaceful for a lad from West London. the views are stunning, whilst driving around to properties, and my camera gets used almost daily.

 

Nicola Thompson

About You

I’m Nic – short for Nicola. I am what you would call born and bred in The Lakes. I’ve lived here all my life, give or take a few months here and there!

Favourite Lake District walk

My favourite Lake District walk is Barf & Lords Seat. The views are incredible, and you can see the west coast from the top.

Go-to spot for food and drink in the Lakes

I live in Keswick, so my go-to place for food and drinks would be Bar Es. It’s locally owned and I’m a firm believer in supporting local businesses…. and the food is lovely! Mexican style tapas, so, great with a bottle of wine and my best friends.

Favourite things about living and working in the Lake District

I love that I don’t have a long commute to work, and I can look out of any windows at home and see mountains and valleys for miles. I feel grateful to have been born and raised in this part of the world. It’s stunning, and I’m so happy to be able to bring my daughter up here.
