Allan Bank & Grasmere image

William Wordsworth described Grasmere as the "loveliest spot man hath ever found". Allan Bank was where he once lived and is now partially restored.

Allan Bank opened its doors the public in 2012 and visitors can now see the history of this intriguing house. Grasmere itself is a stunning part of Cumbria and the Lake District. It's the perfect place for waking and Allan Bank offers visitors the chance to relax after a great day out exploring in front of a real fire and with a cup of tea.
