  • "Have absolutely no criticism about the property, it is well finished and maintained, it is perfectly located for an ascent up Scafel pike, local shops offer enough for a short stay, we only stayed for a weekend and are already considering a return for a full weeks holiday, if any thing I would say that the property is understated on the website and the reality of it far exceeds expectations."

    Thank you for your review and kind feedback. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future should you choose Wainwright Cottage. Property Owner

  • "Lovely,clean , comfortable cottage with good facilities and an enclosed garden - very useful with children."

    There were one or two games as well for them to play with. There were sightseeing places to go very near to the village where we were staying. Muncaster Castle with an Owlerie and birds of prey, beautiful grounds etc. Also there was a Ravenglass steam railway and museum , and of course the pretty and quiet Seascale Beach which was ideal . Altogether a good little holiday with plenty to do and we would definitely recommend the cottage.

    Thank you for your feedback, we're glad you enjoyed your stay in our cottage. Property Owner

The property

This bright and airy semi-detached cottage rests in the idyllic village of Gosforth amongst beautiful Lakeland scenery.

Well-presented over three floors, Wainwright Cottage invites families of five seeking a charming base on the edge of the Lake District.

The open-plan living space is the social hub of the home, complete with all the essentials for a week away; take over the kitchen and conjure up a delicious feast for the family before gathering at the breakfast bar and toasting to a much-needed break.

After a food slump, collapse on the settee and catch up on your favourite TV shows whilst the woodburning stove gently heats the space.

Move to the first floor and discover two bedrooms, a king-size and a single, serviced by a contemporary shower room.

The third bedroom lies on the second floor and includes a super-king-size bed with stunning views.

To the exterior of Wainwright Cottage is an enclosed rear garden, offering a decked space with furniture so you can enjoy alfresco dining on a warm evening.

Within a moments' walk you can find the dining options of The Wild Olive and Gosforth Hall Inn, as well as a well-stocked convenience store.

From Wainwright Cottage you can easily access the coast; hop in the car and drive to Seascale, where you can lounge on the golden beaches and paddle in the shores, or test out your swing at the Golf Course.

For a different way to explore the region, the fantastic Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway is a superb choice for railway enthusiasts, whilst history lovers will find fun exploring the ruins of Ravenglass Roman Bath House and the grounds at Muncaster Castle.

The bustling hubs of Bowness, Ambleside and Windermere aren’t far, offering a range of restaurants, pubs, shops and family-friendly attractions - you can’t miss them when holidaying in the Lake District!
