Whilst visiting Grasmere, we recommend paying a visit to Sarah Nelson’s Grasmere Gingerbread. Grasmere Gingerbread® was the creation of a Victorian Grasmere cook named Sarah Nelson and has become known all over the world.
The shop, located next to St. Oswald’s Church is run by the same family today, who are keeping the tradition of her unique 1854 recipe alive. Today, the product range has expanded to other delicious treats including ginger beer, Cumberland rum butter and even ginger ice-cream in the summer months.
