Allan Bank Grasmere
LA22 9QB

Opened to the public for the first time ever in March 2012, Allan Bank is a place to relax in front of a warm fire with a cup of tea while the children play. Once home to William Wordsworth and National Trust founder Canon Rawnsley, Allan Bank was rescued from the ravages of fire in 2011. Now partially restored and undecorated, the house offers you the opportunity to see and touch the many layers of this home's fascinating history. The welcoming village of Grasmere is nestled with its two picturesque lakes against a dramatic backdrop of Lake District fells. It's the perfect place to come explore, relax, reflect and be inspired. The varied landscape is accommodating to outdoor enthusiasts and intrepid explorers of all levels, be it a relaxing stroll and a picnic around the shores of Grasmere or a hike to the summit of Helm Crag for a taste of the high mountains and fantastic views of the valley and lakes below.
