Really enjoyed our stay here with English Shmanny and husband (recommended by them). Our room was lovely and spacious with good views of the scenery and river. The bathroom is a bit of a squeeze but perfectly adequate and good quality fittings. Breakfast excellent and nothing to much trouble from our friendly hosts Ian and Christine. Would stay here again !

Our second visit to Beck Allans with friends did not disappoint ...... spotless, comfortable, quiet, friendly, accommodation - and helpful if you break a leg as my husband did on our penultimate day!!! A nice touch before we arrived was that Ian remembered us from our last visit and asked if we would like fish again for breakfast :-) - the kippers and poached eggs were divine as was the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs! Our rooms were perfect - we stayed in the same room as before and I noted that my previous comment had been taken on board and there was a little blind at the window that let in a lot of light......I cannot praise this place enough, if you want the Best of British - this is where you will find it.....

Room Tip: Room 6 is a little small for couples unless you are staying for one night - its ideal if you are tra...

Came back to Beck Allans for a weekend break before the Christmas rush !
Since our last stay the room and bathroom had been refurbished to a very high standard which made our stay even better than before. Fantastic breakfast which always goes down a treat and sets us up for the day.
Only down side was the rain, but with Ian and Christine like a ray of sunshine nothing is too much trouble.

Stayed here for 2 nights in Novemember. Pleasant and helpful hosts. Warm and comfortable room, with a well presented bathroom. Very good breakfast. Guest house is situated in the centre of the village of Grasmere, so walking is easy to many of the restaurants Grasmere has to offer.

I have lost count of the number of times we have stayed here over the last 12 years, but again we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It's the first winter stay and we were wondering whether the rooms would be warm enough or not. It was not a problem as the rooms were nice and toasty on our arrival back each evening. Breakfast was as good as usual, but the additional juice and/or smoothie was a welcome addition. Yet again top marks, thank you.

We had a stop over in Grasmere and stayed there for three nights. Our first impression of Beck Allans was that it was a nice Bed and Breakfast place but unfortunately after spending three nights there found the owner to be rather aloof and kind of uneasy having to see him in the mornings.
My feeling was that if you stay in someone's home because essentially it is their home you are staying in, at least be friendly.

Room Tip: For that price look for something where you don't have to face the owners each morning!
