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

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

Fabulous situation, with easy access to Kendal and the fell behind. This B&B is a real 'home from home', with great breakfasts and a wide variety of options to satisfy my 2 hungry boys. The owners Shirley and David were fantastic at being attentive but unintrusive, and kindly let my son use the shower after his fell race, he was... More

Good clean B & B accommodation nothing too much trouble. Interesting connection with Alfred Wainwright. David and Shirley are very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Excellent cooked breakfasts. Ideal for anyone wishing to stay in Wainwright country. Nice and quiet and plenty of parking space. Very good value. We will be back again.
