“An aroma that stays with you”
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!”
Reviewed March 9, 2014 via mobile

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”
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.
