Grasmere Gingerbread Shop

Grasmere Gingerbread was not always as well known around the world as it is today. Indeed, it was developed by an unsuspecting Sarah Nelson, a hardworking house maid turned entrepreneur.

It was sometime in the winter of 1854 that Sarah perfected her gingerbread recipe and started to sell it to local villagers. The reputation for the spicy-sweet chewy biscuit/cake soon spread and, thanks to the Victorian tourist boom, the Gingerbread travelled far and wide.

The shop also sells award-winning rum butter and a range of ginger-themed foodstuffs.
