Summer at Allan Bank

A family enjoying the sun on the lawn at Allan Bank in Grasmere

Visit a relaxed National Trust house with space to paint and draw, dress up, watch for red squirrels, tuck into a picnic and let off some steam in the woodland garden. Here's why Allan Bank could be your place to visit with the kids this summer.

Tuck into something tasty

Or call into our Grasmere Shop in the village for a delicious ice-cream to keep you cool on hot summer days. We'll be scoopping everyday throughout the summer school holidays. 

There's fun to be had

With stripped back walls, a relaxed atmosphere and plenty of free space to run around, this is the perfect place to bring the family if you’re looking for somewhere full of traditional activities to keep the kids entertained for hours. 

Away from the traffic and any sign of a busy road, our garden and woodland are a great place to escape and let off some steam. Throughout the summer holidays we’ve got Nature Detectives – pick up your explorer pack and head out into the woods with a National Trust Ranger. See if you can spot a red squirrel!
