Grasmere Gingerbread ®
This fascinating little shop was built in 1630 as the village school, and is where Wordsworth occasionally taught. In 1854 it became the home of Sarah Nelson's world famous original celebrated Grasmere Gingerbread ®. This unique and delicious gingerbread is freshly baked everyday to the secret recipe and is only obtainable from this shop or through the international mail order service.
