From now until further notice, The Grasmere Gingerbread Shop is closed to the public. We have done this to safeguard the health and well-being of our staff, customers, suppliers and the wider community as Covid-19 continues to spread. Government health experts say it is VITAL that most of us self-isolate in our homes and/or socially distance ourselves from other people, if the NHS is to cope with the predicted numbers of people likely to fall seriously ill. Our members of staff are following this important advice.

Mail Order – Resumed

In response to customer demand, we are running a limited mail order service for Grasmere Gingerbread® and other products from our online shop from April 6.

Orders will be despatched Monday to Thursday on a first come, first served basis.

We are observing the strictest Covid-19 health and safety guidelines in our bakery and administration office.

There will be no direct physical contact between our staff, or between them and our courier delivery service driver.

Wedding Favours

Due to the closures of venues and the prohibition of public gatherings due to Covid-19, we realise that all weddings planned for the coming weeks and months will no longer go ahead. Everyone here realises how upsetting this is for couples who have been eagerly anticipating their special day. We will, of course, defer any order for wedding favours to a future date.

Thank you

Finally, on behalf of everyone at Grasmere Gingerbread® in the Lake District, thank you for all your previous custom, support and all the lovely personal messages that you continue to send. We read every single one. In the meantime, please follow the Government guidelines about self-isolating and social distancing so that you stay safe and well over the next few months. We want to be able to welcome you all back to our little shop in the most beautiful valley in England very soon.

Joanne, Andrew and the Grasmere Gingerbread® Team
