I've been here so many times it's like a second home. My whole family love the place. We even spent £75 on a little miniature ornament of it. Everything they make is out of this world, but the best is the ginger wine (especially warm, they even serve it hot and ready to drink in the shop, it's so strong... More

No trip to Grasmere is complete without a visit here. The gingerbread is truly delicious, especially eaten warm. And the staff are warm and friendly too.

The shop itself is tiny, but that all part of its charm, the gingerbread is outstanding! We loved it so much we used it as our wedding favours. The staff where great in dealing with the wedding, it all arrived on time at the venue and everyone loved it!!

This Gingerbread is the best ever and what makes it even better is that it's VEGAN. if you are in the area I would recommend a trio here. The only downfall to it is that the shop is so so small and sometimes the queue can get pretty long especially on a sunny day. However long the queue may be... More

Small but very quaint shop. Very popular with the tourists. Gingerbread is traditional but not everyone's cup of tea as it is very hard. Suitable let for dunking?
