Soak up a little bit of history in the small shop with a history of famous admirers--among them William Wordsworth, Tom Cruise, and Nicole Kidman.

  • Beautiful gingerbread. Have to pop in every time we are nearby to buy gingerbread for friends and family or we would be disowned. The ginger truffles are beautiful too.  more »
  • An absolute gem of a tiny shop. Usually has a queue but it moves swiftly so you do not wait long. Gingerbread is like no other you will have tasted. Been coming here since the 90s first as a family an...  more »

  • This is a really small shop in the centre of the village full of charm when you walk in. That is if you can get in. It holds maybe two people at any one time. We bought a couple of packets of the gingerbread and when we opened them they were large biscuits. I thought nothing of them until I bit into the first one. Unbelievable. Really special taste that melts in your mouth. Something to enjoy with a nice tea or coffee in the evening or when out on a walk in the cold winds and rain. Very refreshing and worth every penny.
  • A company with a healthy dose of integrity (and delicious product!). In this day and age when customer service has taken a nosedive, Grasmere steps up to the plate to ensure a delighted customer who will want to return again and again. "People may not remember exactly what you did, or what you said, but they will always remember how you made them feel." - Maya Angelou Thank you, Grasmere for ensuring reliability, especially because I was purchasing from abroad.
  • Small shop bursting with character. The gingerbread is delicious! Soft and chewy at the same time with warming spicy gingery flavours. Bought a pack of gingerbread and Sarah's Seville Orange & Ginger marmalade. The raspberry ginger marshmallows were lovely too. Quaint shop with staff dressed-up in Victorian outfits. Only regret is that we bought a small pack of gingerbread so will be going back for more!
  • They describe their product as gingerbread. It was delivered on the day requested. When I opened it, to my surprise I found thin biscuits. My Grandmother lived near lake Windermere and made gorgeous gingerbread as a loaf shaped cake, soft and sticky with black treacle. The Grasmere product was not at all like that so you can guess my disappointment. I won't buy it again and cannot recommend it to others.
  • Wonderful little shop selling the best gingerbread treats you've ever had. We were passing through and we're glad we stopped by. We bought a few packs of the gingerbread and finished one before leaving the Daffodil Garden next door. Had to go back in to buy some more! Highly recommended.
