Offering luxury AA 4 Star accommodation in the Central Lakes, we extend a warm welcome to guests at Wheelgate Country Guest House in Coniston. Our award winning B&B is an enchanting 17th Century farmhouse nestling in the pretty hamlet of Little Arrow, just over a mile south of Coniston. Oozing charm and character, the house has an abundance of traditional features from exposed beams and slate fireplaces to cosy low ceilings. Perfect for couples and romantic breaks, we have four poster bedrooms available and award-winning gardens.
We have five well-appointed en-suite bedrooms with views over the garden and surrounding countryside. Each room is tastefully decorated and designed with comfort in mind. Buttermere is our four-poster romantic room and Derwent is a king-size that can be converted to a twin if you prefer.
We have two single rooms for those travelling alone, and most importantly we only charge single prices! All the rooms are en-suite with shower, and have Freeview digital TV, tea and coffee making facilities, hair dryer and a radio alarm clock.
Enjoy delicious locally sourced breakfasts served daily. Special diets are happily catered for.
Guests have access to a stunning oak beamed lounge, relaxing bar and alfresco beer garden.
Our minimum booking generally is two nights. Bookings which start on a Friday must be for a minimum of three nights.
The guest house is surrounded by beautiful countryside, and the Coniston area makes an ideal base from which to explore the Lake District. There are walks to suit all abilities straight from the doorstep, plus plenty of other opportunities to get out and about by boat on nearby Coniston Water. Don't miss a visit to Brantwood, John Ruskin's historic home alongside the Lake. Cycling and horse riding are easily accessed locally.
We have a Quality Rating of 5 stars from the AA, plus their coveted Breakfast Award. We are proud of our friendly service.
