Sarah Nelson’s Gingerbread Shop

Church Cottage Grasmere LA22 9SW 01539 435 428

We say

On the way into Grasmere churchyard to see the Wordsworth graves, you can’t help notice the tantalising smell in the air from the village’s famous old gingerbread shop, right by the church gate. The recipe is a secret, and (apart from online, by post) this is the only place you can buy the aromatic gingerbread, so make sure you stop on the way in or out.
