Our shop is now open every day of the week between 9.15 am and 5.30pm.

We operate to strict Covid-19 health & safety guidelines.

To keep you safe we operate a traffic light system at the entrance to our shop. Please ‘wait’ at the red light and ‘enter’ at the green light. ONLY enter the shop when the green light is illuminated and no more than 3 people in any group.

Please sanitise your hands before entering (sanitiser provided). You must wear a mask or appropriate face covering in line with government guidelines. A one metre plus social distancing policy is in force. During your visit please observe all relevant information displayed on our information boards and also on the pavement. Please respect other customers and staff.

If there is a queue upon arrival, please join it from the adjoining church yard and not from the main road pathway. Outside signage will guide you and ‘Stand HERE’ posts are present along the church yard path.

If you are only buying Grasmere Gingerbread® and/or Grasmere Gingerbread® ice cream you may do so at our back gate inside the actual church yard.

Presently we are only accepting card payments.

N.B. We do not have full range of sundry products available for sale in the shop but every product is available from our online store at

Mail Order

Our mail order service – nationally and internationally – is fully operational once again. Our full product range is available online with many new products coming on stream every week. We are observing the strictest Covid-19 health & safety guidelines in our bakery and office and because we are observing government guidelines all administration staff are working off site.

Wedding Favours


To all our presently booked brides and grooms: as previously communicated, all cancelled and postponed weddings are being held on file (including any deposits) and may be deferred to a future date when the Government changes the guidelines.

Until the Government alters these guidelines Grasmere Gingerbread® CANNOT take ANY future bookings or deal with Wedding Favour enquiries.

 Therefore, as no-one is currently working in this area of our business please be patient if awaiting a reply to any correspondence which is only dealt with on a weekly basis via email only. (

Many thanks,

Joanne Hunter
