About Wainman House

A 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 six-bedroom 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, 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 north 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.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
