Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Location Beck Allans is located in a delightful position at the centre of Grasmere Village and is yet 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 immediately to the right. 

Description Beck Allans is believed to have been constructed in the 1850's as an impressive home for a Manchester business man who appreciated the beauty of this splendid location. In about 1970 the property was then converted to its present use with Bracken Fell itself, being a purpose built addition in 1994 constructed over a double garage (not owned by the property).

Perfect as a lock-up and leave weekend retreat or indeed continued use as a holiday let, the double glazed apartment is offered as seen with furniture and fittings all included (excluding bedding as this is supplied by the laundry). Onward holiday let bookings are available if desired or vacant possession can be offered.
