I stayed here in April for two nights so that I could walk some of the Wainwright far eastern outlying fells and am so glad that I did. Wainwright House is uniquely situated at the end of its own private drive which means that it is also very peaceful and quiet. Hosts David and Shirley were extremely welcoming and friendly... More

Stayed here with 3 pals on the first night of a walking weekend. Nice hosts who hit the right note - welcoming but not overbearing. Asked if we wanted fresh milk to make tea/coffee rather than just leaving a bowl of UHT packs. Relaxing lounge with stove, comfy beds, brilliant breakfast. Would definitely stay here again.

I stayed at Wainwright House in January. A great place. Nice and peaceful. I was made to feel very welcome. I stayed 3 nights and had a comfortable room and was served a wonderful breakfast each morning. David and Shirley couldn't have been more helpful.

I have just been up the Kendal whilst working and on looking for a place to stay for a couple of nights I came across the Wainwright House and must say from the moment I arrived to the second I left I could not find fault. The owners are polite, friendly and extremely helpful, the room was clean and tidy,... More

Thank you to David and Shirley for a lovely stay at wainwright house. When driving there you don't know what to expect as you are in a residential area and then you head up the driveway to views and the wonderful house itself. I was there with a collegue on business and all our needs were catered for, including a... More

I was guided to this place by the tourist information shop in Kendal and am so glad I stayed there. Shirley and David are the perfect hosts, so attentive yet very discreet, and I felt so relaxed and at home.The room was very comfortable, far than I had expected for the price. It was so nice staying there that I... More

Wainwright House is a perfect place to relax and unwind around home-comforts. Dave and Shirley are extremely welcoming and were very attentive to our needs- not just at breakfast time! We stayed in the twin room, which has a lovely view of Hay Fell to the rear of the house. There is also a spacious lounge area (very well-equipped with... More

Great location, delightful hosts and a characterful, comfortable house. David and Shirley were welcoming, yet discreet, hosts. If you're planning a trip to the Lakes, this would be a great place to base yourself.

A beautiful house in a beautiful spot with lovely hosts. David and Shirley gave us a very warm welcome to their home, which is full of character and ideally located in this spectacular countryside. With comfy beds, a great breakfast and a genuinely interesting past, Wainwright House is the perfect base to explore Lakeland. Highly recommended.

Wainwright House was everything I could have wanted from a B&B on my stay in Kendal. It is situated in a quiet area, just north of Kendal but within 10 minutes walk of the town, no traffic noise, just the sound of the dawn chorus to wake me up. My comfortable room faced the fells and was nicely furnished and... More
