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. 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.

About 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.

Wheelgate Front Door


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. 

On a warm sunny day you might prefer to sit outside and enjoy our enchanting gardens.


Our 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.

During the pandemic we are offering 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 rolls, fruit juce, yoghurt, cereal and toast.  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.


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.

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.

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.
