We stayed here for 2 very enjoyable nights while some of our party completed the Dales Way. David and Shirley made us very welcome and were very helpful. The house has an interesting story and there is information and photos available for those interested. Our room was a little small but clean and comfortable with good ensuite facilities. Breakfast was... More

It is always nice to see a group of guests have really enjoyed their stay. The memory of both families making full use of our Guest Lounge each evening to play their game of Upwords was a pleasure indeed. I hope one day their walks will bring them to visit us again. More

Came across this nice Bed and Breakfast last minute for a work trip i needed to attend. David and Shirley were very accommodating throughout my stay. Thank you. The location is only 10mins to the centre of Kendal.

This is a very good up and coming bed and breakfast in Kendal. The hosts are very friendly people and so welcoming and very willing to help us much more than we would ever have expected. It has good parking and is a good positive aspect of it compared to many other B&Bs in the lakes that require parking on... More

Clean room and friendly welcome upon arrival. We had space to store our bikes as we had cycled in the lakes. 15 minute walk into Kendal. David and Shirley recommended many restaurants and excellent breakfast in the morning was served. Rooms were spacious including a good sized ensuite. We had booked a twin room however it was taken so kindly... More

We enjoyed our stay as the couple were friendly and nothing was too much for them. Our room was bigger than most we have stayed in. The cooking was perfect and there was a good choice for breakfast. Well worth a visit. The only downside was the cobwebs on the outside of the windows. Considering the fact that the couple... More

We always do our best to give customers a warm welcome, and it is a pleasure to receive such praise. We take particular pride in the fact that our guestrooms are roomy and well presented. Our gardens and woodland are a unique selling point ahead of other Kendal premises. However, our industrious garden spiders do give us a hard time... More

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.
