Victorian stone house 1.5 miles from Windermere on the A591. Parking available for two cars, public transport on the A591. All rooms have double glazing. Fenced garden for dogs. Local shop and petrol. Without transport, taxi or bus needed to go to Bowness.

Le logement

Allan Bank is equally suitable for adults who want a comfortable home at the end of a day admiring the views, or for families who come back with hiking boots and wet clothes - it does rain in the Lakes!
For both parties it's very convenient being on the A591, on a bus route and opposite a convenience store and petrol station!

Accès des voyageurs

Guests will have access to all rooms except the basement. There are three double beds and one double sofa bed (in the sitting room) a baby travel cot can be arranged. Upstairs is a shower room and a bathroom; there is toilet and washbasin conveniently located off the porch where all the outdoor clothes are kept.
The central heating is very good, but there 3 extra radiators and 1 log effect electric fire. Of course there is a washer and a drier, a fridge and freezer, cooker and hob, there is also a rice cooker.
The garden has been fenced off for visiting family dogs, but sheep are kept in a field just a few meters away, so leads are necessary when leaving the back door or garden gate.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

I'm Elaine and live most of the time in Hong Kong, I like to respond quickly to enquiries, but occasionally the time difference between countries causes a few hours of delay. My daughter Una lives locally and manages the arrangements for guest arrivals and departures - her phone details are given before arrival. The house has everything you might need to make your visit comfortable including freshly made-up beds, towels, a dishwasher and a fridge with breakfast items. There are plenty of maps and reference books, and the Guidebook on this site has quite a few recommendations of where to visit. I'm always very interested to know if the house was up to your expectations when you leave.

Autres remarques

Important message: Mobile phone reception in the area is poor - Vodaphone is best from outside the sitting room window. Because of this the landline telephone is available, but for local calls only.
Water skiing, water-boarding, sailing is available just a few miles towards Ambleside, and Lake cruises are a feature at Bowness - on - Windermere. The house is at the foot of the Kirkston Pass, one of the highest passes in the Lake District that connects with Ullswater.

Parking gratuit sur place

Règlement intérieur
L'entrée dans les lieux se fait à partir de 14:00
Départ avant 12:00

Allan Bank's address has recently been changed by the post office because it is not located on Brook Street: Allan Bank, Troutbeck Bridge, LA23 1HL. Access: The right turn between two stone gateposts is tight. Overseas guests frequently hire very large 7 seat cars. It is possible to drive through, but some care is needed. Parking: See 2 spaces on the photo where a car is parked. The area near the back door can be used to turn the car around but not to park.
Another house rule is regarding the central heating: Please don't change the central heating remote and don't open the cupboard in the kitchen where main tank is located. DO NOT CHANGE the setting. If guests arrive after 11pm the heating is on a timer and cannot be overridden. If extra heating is needed there are free standing electric heaters.
There is a dishwasher; please use it.
The council does not provide free rubbish collection - the green wheelie bin is privately hired and provides recycling; please deposit everything in black bags into the bin on departure.
Dogs are allowed as long they are kept on leads once outside the garden gate or back door. The farmer has sheep in the field opposite the garden gate.
Smokers please use the garden.
Children do stay in the house, but it is impossible to fix a safety gate at the top of the stairs, and a large wooden coffee table in the sitting room could prove to be an obstacle course for crawling babies! As the house has 3 bedrooms it is suitable for 3 couples, but not big enough if all the couples want to bring children. The staircase has to be considered. More than two children would not be manageable.
Older guests do stay, but the staircase has a steep left hand bend - see a photo on the listing.
There isn't access for wheelchairs and the staircase is not suitable for a disabled person, but there is a comfy sofa bed and downstairs toilet.
Because Allan Bank is on an unnamed track (I have the right to use, and own the parking spaces) there isn't any street lighting except the light on the house - all guests are urged to bring a torch for use in the dark.
Luggage - overseas guests frequently bring very large suitcases and hand luggage. When the group is a party of six, the wear and tear on the staircase (narrow, steep and crooked) is very heavy. Most big luggage will need to stay in the porch, which is locked and safe.
Slippers are not provided unless requested.

Wonderful home away from home in a cozy retreat. Elaine gave very clear instructions on every aspect and useful tips all along the way which helped made our stay comfortable and memorable. She had breakfast items provided and lots of maps, books, games to keep us engaged during our 4 days there. A great host in every way!

Great house, close enough walk to Bowness and Windermere but nice and quiet location at the same time. Very well catered house- Elaine generously advised us to help ourselves to anything in the house and had kindly provided bread, bacon and other welcome surprises! Highly recommended

Very comfortable beds, modern well appointed bathrooms and a lovely light and spacious living room gave this cottage a warm and homely feel. Elaine also provided a huge range of lovely breakfast goodies, fruit, teas, jams and much more. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

I like to be busy, I'm quite independent, still passionate about what I do and I write - a lot. At 72 I still work six days a week from 10am to 7pm; it's my choice - I like to be involved in day to day teaching routines. On the other hand I relish the opportunities I take to vis…
