  • A must stop if you like real ginger bread! Always a line, but it moves fast. Enjoy Best ginger bread with tea and coffee! I must and a great walking break!

  • This is a tiny little shop that produces fantastic gingerbread. The gingerbread is dense and crumbly, but good. One small loaf will feed several people, as you really can't eat a lot. The ginger...

  • I love gingerbread. But any gingerbread I've ever had within my lifetime doesn't come close to the majesty of this gingerbread. The flavour is amazing, with the perfect amount of that sweet and slightly fiery ginger, and the texture is perfect too. Soft and buttery, but still with a crunch. We visited one morning to get a sample, and returned later the same day to stock up before we were leaving Grasmere for home. Don't be put off by the queue - it moves quickly and you won't be disappointed!
  • Very unique textured and flavoured gingerbread, moreish and flavoursome. The gingerbread fudge is one of the best sweets I’ve eaten in my life. Incredibly friendly service and lovely quaint shop. Must visit if you’re in the Lakes. Great to buy gifts for loved ones.
