Location Beck Allans is located in a delightful position in the centre of Grasmere Village and yet is tucked away from the main thoroughfares. From our office in Ambleside head north on the A591 to Grasmere passing Rydal Water and Grasmere Lake along the way. Upon reaching the roundabout take the first exit into the village. On entering the village follow the main road, passing the church and famous ‘Grasmere Gingerbread’ shop on the right hand side, and the entrance to Beck Allans is the next turning on the right after The Wordsworth Hotel. Once you have entered the drive, the allocated parking space can be found on your left.

Description Beck Allans is an attractive traditional stone and slate property located virtually in the centre of Grasmere, although even the most frequent visitor to this delightful Lakeland village would be excused for having missed it. Quietly tucked away, this distinctive property was originally built in the 1850’s by a wealthy Manchester businessman who no doubt appreciated the beauty of the surrounding scenery, which is every bit as stunning now as it was then.This attractive building went on to become a Catholic college and then a convalescent home for soldiers in the First World War. In the 1970’s the building was thoughtfully subdivided to create the wonderful apartments found here today

This welcoming cosy apartment in the eaves is approached via a well maintained communal hallway and staircase and is located on the second floor. Full of character, it includes a hallway with space to hang coats, and an immaculate open plan bedsitting room/kitchen area with beautiful exposed timber beams and enjoys wonderful fell views The kitchen area is fitted with wall and base units with complementary work surfaces incorporating a stainless steel sink and drainer, an electric two ring counter top hob and an Ariston undercounter fridge. The bedroom space benefits from a fitted wardrobe/storage cupboard and chest of drawers. The bathroom has tiled walls and a three piece suite comprising a panel bath with Triton shower over, pedestal wash hand basin, and a WC. There is private car parking on the left of the driveway and the communal gardens are a delight.

Perfect as a lock-up and leave weekend retreat, a holiday let, or perhaps even a first time home the apartment is easily managed in this superb setting at the very heart of Grasmere.
