Allan Bank and Grasmere (NT)

Allan Bank, GRASMERE, LA22 9QB

Opened to the public for the first time in March 2012, Allan Bank was once home to William Wordsworth and National Trust founder Canon Rawnsley, and was rescued from a fire in 2011. Now partially restored and undecorated, the house offers the opportunity to see the many layers of this house's fascinating history. The welcoming village of Grasmere is nestled against a dramatic backdrop of Lake District fells. The varied landscape is accommodating to outdoor enthusiasts and intrepid explorers, from those who just want a relaxing stroll and a picnic around the shores of Grasmere, to those who aim at a hike to the summit of Helm Crag for a taste of the high mountains and fantastic views of the valley and lakes below.
