Sarah Nelson's Gingerbread Shop information
In business since 1854, this famous sweetshop next to the village church makes Grasmere's essential souvenir: traditional gingerbread with a half-biscuity, half-cakey texture cooked using the original top-secret recipe (six/12 pieces for £3.50/5.95). Friendly service by ladies dressed in frilly pinafores and starched bonnets is an added bonus.
