During the pandemic we have adjusted our breakfast service.  We will deliver breakfast to your room after pre-ordering the day before.  We will offer a choice of Bacon or sausgae rolls, tea & coffee, cereal, orange juice and toast. Alternatively, you can have a packed lunch instead or eat in the dining room at 08:30 where a full English Breakfast will be served. You can elect to not have breakfast and get a £4 per person per day reduction. This will be refunded on instruction.


Although we do not serve evening meals at Wheelgate, there is plenty of choice locally when it comes to eating out.

The Church House Inn (closed as of August 2020) and The Wilson Arms in Torver are just a short walk away along a lovely footpath (10-15 minutes), or a couple of minutes in the car.

Coniston village boasts several pubs including The Black Bull (home of the famous Bluebird Bitter), The Crown, The Sun and The Ship Inn.

For the best dining in Coniston try the Steam Bistro, a personal favourite for good food, friendly service and value for money.

Slightly further afield (about 15-20 minutes by car) and well worth a visit is The Blacksmith’s Arms at Broughton Mills.

For a special occasion or just to treat yourself, why not try The Drunken Duck Inn at Outgate, again just 15-20 minutes by car. Another of our personal favourites for a relaxing evening with excellent service and food is The Jumble Room in Grasmere.

For even more choice, the village of Hawkshead is a short drive away, and Ambleside and Windermere have a vast range of pubs and restaurants.
