About Little Wainman HouseA gorgeous Georgian house with stylish interiors and a private terraced garden in the small town of Wisbech.
Wainman House is a hidden gem in the small market town of Wisbech. Behind its modest Georgian exterior lies an elegant house where much of its refined neoclassical style remains. Mosaicked floors, wood panelled walls, four-poster beds and period fireplaces run throughout, giving this holiday stay a truly luxurious feel. You’ll have your own private terraced garden and access to the flower-rich garden of Peckover House.
You’ll be in the heart of Wisbech, the birth place of Octavia Hill, and where much of its historic Georgian architecture stills stands. Walk just a few minutes to shops, restaurants and its very own, 200-year-old brewery, Elgood’s.
The west Norfolk coast is just a 30-minute drive from here. Visit The Wash National Nature Reserve, the largest bay in England, for its unusual coastal scenery made up of saltmarshes, mudflats and open water. A little further on you’ll discover vast expanses of purely ’sand, sea and sky’ from the bustle of Hunstanton through to sailing at Brancaster and breathtaking Holkham beach connected by pinewoods and sand dunes to the quaint quayside town of Wells-next-the-Sea.
