Wainwright House is a spacious town house sleeping 6 people in 3 bedrooms. In the bright and relaxing open plan living-dining room you can enjoy a cosy evening around the log burner and sociable meals around the table. Cook in the beautifully finished kitchen or grab a takeaway from the centre of Keswick, just a short stroll away. There are 3 bedrooms to choose from; a spacious super king on the first floor and two quirky bedrooms on the second floor that have wonderful mountain views. With two bathrooms with baths and separate showers, there is plenty of space for a large family or couples holidaying together. Enjoy a morning cup of tea in the enclosed back yard and plan how to make the most of your day.

Located in a quiet back street yet within a short walk of the centre of Keswick, Wainwright House has an enviable location for exploring this beautiful and vibrant area. Keswick has a good range of independent shops that are ideal for a browse. When you need a break there are plenty of cafes and pubs for refreshment. Lovely Derwentwater is a pleasant stroll away; enjoy a lakeshore walk, take a boat trip across the lake, or just sit and enjoy the stunning views. Keen walkers of all abilities will be spoilt for choice with fell walks ranging from little (but steep!) Walla Crag with its amazing birds eye view of the lake to Skiddaw, one of only four fells in the Lake District over 3,000ft. With museums, galleries, a family-run cinema, and the renowned Theatre by the Lake, there is plenty to do on a less energetic day too.

Mountain bike enthusiasts can pit themselves against the purpose-built trails at Whinlatter Forest whilst families can explore the play trail and see if they can find The Gruffalo. Park at Dodd Wood (or get the bus!) and visit historic Mirehouse to discover the house and gardens or head up to the Osprey viewpoint and spot some wildlife. For a change of scene, the attractive market towns of Cockermouth and Penrith are a short drive away, or follow Wordsworth south to his former home at Dove Cottage in Grasmere. Having easy access to the A66 and A591 means nowhere is too far away; head north to Carlisle and wild Hadrian’s Wall country, west to the Solway Coast AONB with miles of empty beaches to blow away the cobwebs, or relax in the spa at Armathwaite Hall. Whatever interests you have, you are sure to find an activity to suit you.
