“An aroma that stays with you”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

No visit to Grasmere is complete unless you pop into Sarah Nelson's Gingerbread shop.
I defy anyone to walk past without stopping to enjoy the smalls at least.
If you venture inside then treat yourself to a packet of Gingerbread, you will not be disappointed, and will probably want to go back for more

“Gorgeous crumbly goodness!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

Love the experience of visiting Grasmere Gingerbread!
You must try it if in the Lakes. The tiny shop, the smells & the setting are great....the lady serving needs to act the part too though!

“mmmmm....so delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

This little shop in Grasmere is lovely and sells the most delicious gingerbread and associated Fayre. Grasmere gingerbread makes a nice gift to take home, that's if you don't eat it yourself.
