Coniston Bed & Breakfast Accommodation

Welcome to Wheelgate, a charming Lakeland house with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Situated in a peaceful location just a stone's throw from Coniston Water, the house is surrounded by the beautiful lake and mountain scenery of Coniston.

Our attractively-designed bedrooms, oak-beamed lounge, cosy bar and superb breakfasts make Wheelgate the perfect Lakeland retreat.

We look forward to welcoming you to our B&B in Coniston.

The hotel will be open for bookings after May 17, 2021

Our gorgeous Lakeland property with all its characterful features would make social distancing extremely difficult. Our priority is to our guests and staff and to keep them safe. Things will return to normal around Easter if the virus in the community reduces to an acceptable level.

Wheelgate Breakfast
From easing of regulations due to the Covid-19 pandemic we are offering all guests the option to have a continental breakfast in their room (anytime from 8am) or full English breakfast in the dining room. Continuing to apply social distancing ensures that the guests will feel comfortable during this period.We will ask all guests to pre-order their breakfast the night before. Therefore, those who are having breakfast in the dining room will be invited to come at 08:30.

A fridge is provided in all the rooms and we will offer a supply of milk, juice and yoghurts if they have been ordered as a part of the continental breakfast. Tea and coffee are available in all rooms.

Servicing of rooms

Wwish to continue reducing the amount of contact and retaining distancing throughout your stay to enhance your comfort and wellbeing. We would ask guests to leave their rubbish in the bags provided outside their room when required. A full supply of bin bags will be placed in the base. Should you require towel replacement, normal after 3 days, please place outside the room.


All rooms will be fogged using hospital grade sanitiser during the regular changeover of rooms.  Our staff will continue to wear face masks throught the Spring and Summer during breakfast and chck-in, check-out times.
