Where to

Places to enjoy Grasmere Gingerbread

ALTHOUGH Grasmere Gingerbread can only be bought at The Grasmere Gingerbread Shop or via our mail order service, it is served at a handful of carefully chosen locations in the Lake District.

These fellow Cumbrian businesses share our passion for superb food and exceptional personal service in our most beautiful national park.

We hope you enjoy visiting them and, whilst you are there, our unique Grasmere Gingerbread.
