Wheelgate Bed and Breakfast

Nestling below the Old Man of Coniston

Wheelgate is a charming Lake District farmhouse providing bed and breakfast in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The house is situated in the peaceful hamlet of Little Arrow, just to the south of Coniston village and a mere stone's throw from Coniston Water.

As you step through the front door into the lounge, the oak beams and panelling, low ceilings and slate fireplace combine to give a sense of Wheelgate's 450 years of history.

Rest and Relax

Five individually-styled bedrooms include two singles, a four-poster and a king-size or twin-bedded room.

All are en-suite with shower and comfortable pocket-sprung bed, and have colour TV with Freeview, free high speed broadband WiFi in all rooms and house, tea and coffee making facilities, big fluffy towels and ‘Pure Lakes’ toiletries. Mini fridge in every room.

Eat and Drink

Hearty breakfast and cosy bar

During the pandemic we are offering continental breakfast delivered to your room or alternatively, a packed lunch for you to take with you on your walks.  Breakfast will be a choice of Bacon or sausge toasted sandwiches, fruit juce, yoghurt, cereal and toast.  Full English breakast will be available in the dining room at 08:30. Just let us know the day before your requirements.

If you have any special dietary requirements, please let us know when you book and we will try our best to accommodate them.

The cosy bar is ideal for a peaceful drink, or you can unwind after a long day on the fells in the comfort of the lounge. 

Explore and Discover

Lots to see and do.

For those interested in walking or visiting local attractions and beauty spots we are happy to lend guide books and maps of the area, and if you are unfortunate enough to get caught out by the Lakeland weather we have a utility room for drying wet coats and boots. For the keen cyclists we can also provide secure covered bike storage.

Coniston Village offers a number of visitor attractions, and a wide range of outdoor activities are available locally.

Us and our Pets

Come and stay with us

We were inspired by the warm and welcoming atmosphere of Wheelgate to make it our home. We hope that you too will be inspired to come and stay with us, and enjoy the beautiful surroundings, the peaceful location, the superb breakfasts and the friendly service.

Our pets

We do not allow pets at Wheelgate apart from the Hideaway and Little Byre cottages which are detached from the main house. We do have our own pets. Two golden retrievers (Jeeves and Siri) and a cat (Tommy). These will not be in the presence of guests unless requested.
