Looking for somewhere with activities for the whole family, a place you can bring your own picnic and grounds waiting to be explored? Then look no further, we have all you and your family need to have a hopping good time at Allan Bank.

NEW for 2018 – Our revamped crafts room
We’ve given our crafts room a facelift and created the perfect space for parents and children alike to try something new. Taking inspiration from traditional handcrafting, we now have a weaving loom and knitting set with step-by-step instructions for complete novices. 

Try out a new look
Does your little one have a dream of becoming a knight or a princess in a very large house? Make it a reality in our playroom – with a dressing up box and lots of traditional toys sure to keep them entertained for hours. 

Go wild 
With balancing logs, stepping stumps and opportunities to build a den, our wild play area in the woods is somewhere worth exploring. 

Paint a picture
Take inspiration from the views from our windows, we have all the materials you need to draw and paint as well as some helpful tips. We have tables and chairs small enough for little budding artists and a lovely gallery for you to hang your masterpieces on.

Spot a squirrel
Allan Bank is one of the best places in Grasmere to see our native red squirrels. We work hard to make the grounds their ideal home, spending over £900.00 on feed every year. You can use our binoculars in Wordsworth’s Study to spot one of them on the feeders outside.
