Not very tasty considering its supposed to be the home of gingerbread! Didn't really taste very much of ginger.

A very nice little shop with extremely lovely staff and great gingerbread items. Queue was initially quite long but went down very fast. Would definitely come back!

It is a quaint little shop. I always visit when I am in Grasmere. I love the produce. It's great for presents. We all love the gingerbread in our family.

This is a little gem of a tiny cottage still making a homesmade recipe for decades. Simply delicious!

I wondered what all the hype was about and why I wanted to queue for gingerbread, but it was worth it.

Go get some, and buy a bit more than you think you’ll need because you’ll eat it...
