facilities

Beck Allans offers a choice of four self catering holiday apartments in Grasmere sleeping 2 to 4 persons.

Our family business run jointly by the Taylor family offers self catering holidays with a choice of four apartments. All apartments are Visit England graded and range from 3 to 4 star.

Quietly situated in the centre of Grasmere village, at the heart of the English Lake District a stay at Beck Allans offers you access to many convenient facilities. Set in our own grounds, we enjoy a very quiet position. Each apartment has its own charm and character, no two are the same.

The self catering apartments are an integral part of the house which was built in 1850 on the instructions of a Manchester businessman. Around 1890 it changed use and became the Grasmere Catholic College. The adjacent street is named after it, i.e. College Street. The property lies 100 meters from the churchyard where William Wordsworth is buried.

During the first World War (1914-18) the house was commandeered for use as a convalescent home for soldiers recovering from their injuries received at the ‘front’.

At the time of World War II (1939-45) the house had once again changed use, this time to a vegetarian hotel. Around 1970 the property was converted to its present use, self catering holiday apartments. In 1994, and again in 1996 substantial improvements were carried out and apartment Bracken Fell was construted.

Reserved car parking is available within the grounds. All apartments are warm, well maintained and include a full inventory. All you need to bring is food and clothes and enjoy!
