This hidden little gem smells amazing and the staff were friendly . Unfortunately no gluten free options but enjoyed visiting and buying presents!

I was only 25 miles away, near Carnforth. The shop was open for another hour and I was on my motorbike, so the journey was going to be fun. How could I resist?
As ever, the shop and staff are delightful, and the gingerbread, which is unlike any other gingerbread, is "to die for".
If you are close to Grasmere, this is a must do, the only question is how much to buy!

I didn't know what to expect. Had to queue - so initially thought there must be crowds inside. Turns out the tiny shop can actually take two people! However, the wait wasn't that long, and the inside is quaint and traditional. The gingerbread is wonderful. They have this amazing secret recipe - and basically stick to what they are good at. Not loads of choice - just their excellent product in a few different forms. I like that kind of simplicity. Great service too.
