    Being National Trust members Allan Bank was on our list of things to do whilst holidaying in the Lake District. We were not disappointed. The grounds and trail for the children were excellent. Plenty ...  more »

    Wonderful place and a must see. Short walk from the centre of Grasmere and well worth it. The views are fantastic, the inside of the house has some wonderful rooms and the art room for the children (a...  more »

    Allan Bank is a family favourite of ours and we usually save it for a rainy day out when we're on our annual holiday in the Lake District. As the house is a National Trust property, it can be quite ex...  more »

  • Unique place, the ex-home of the founder of the National Trust. It was fire damaged in 2011 and opened to the public in 2012 as a 'work in progress' project. Set in lovely surroundings its a no-frills country house that the very friendly staff invite you to explore at leisure then enjoy a cuppa at the cafe. Very child friendly.
  • National Trust. Grounds are well worth a visit. Challenging small (20 minute) walk behind the house. Colony of Red Squirrels here. Parking extremely limited unless you have a disabled badge (c.300 meter walk to house from Grasmere)
  • Lovely house and you can come and go as you please but not a lot to see. As members we got in for free which was great however this place is in need of a lick of paint just to freshen it up. Staff are friendly and location is amazing
  • Felt very unloved. Odd sort of place and appeared very scruffy. Last given a thorough cleaning years ago I should think. Don't waste the entrance fee.
  • Love it here. Great place to relax without the usual restrictions and red ropes.
