This is, quite simply, the best gingerbread in the world. Buying it is itself an experience that's worth having, not least because it involves a trip to the beautiful Lakeland village of Grasmere. My advice to find the store is simply to follow your nose. You'll smell a wonderful, biscuitey aroma long before you ever clap eyes on Sarah Nelson's olde worlde shop. Then, you'll see crowds of devotees making their way towards what looks like a small, white church. Finally, you'll enter a small, warm, dark room, where you are greated by assistants in (slightly twee) traditional costume. It's here that you can taste the gingerbread itself. This ...

This is gingerbread like no other so don't stop reading if you happen to dislike your bog standard gingerbread men. It's very, very different. Just to make sure I get it spot on I am eating some as I type so you can be sure that this review is as accurate as possible. I would say this is probably my favourite food ever and visiting the shop has always been a highlight of every holiday in the Lake District (and that's saying something because the place has a lot more than gingerbread to offer). It's often described as being more like shortbread but it's so much nicer than that! I don't even like shortbread so I disagree anyway. It's ... Read the complete review

Having stumbled across Grasmere by accident we were pleasantly surprised to find this little gem of a place hidden away. Having just been to see Wordsworth's grave we were following the path round when I was hit by the unmistakeable scent of warm gingerbread, this of course required further investigation... The entrance to the shop is at a funny angle, almost round the back and tucked into the corner. At first I didn't realise the scent was coming from a shop as it looks very much like a family home but it is in fact a tiny shop, so tiny that it's almost one in one out. I would advise against attempting to get a pram or wheelchair inside, which is a ... Read the complete review

I paid a visit to the Lake District and popped into the very pretty village of Grasmere, when I saw the Sara Nelson's gingerbread shop and factory that I had heard so much about. It didn't look much like a shop or factory, just a tiny little cottage with such a delicious aroma coming from it and a queue of people outside. I am not a big fan of dry, crispy gingerbread that you get in normal bakeries and supermarkets, however I was drawn into the Grasmere shop by its enticing smell as they cook their products on the premises. It is such a little shop inside that looks very old fashioned inside and the staff are dressed in traditional clothes. The gingerbread is not ... Read the complete review

I've only ever bought Grasmere gingerbread from the tiny little shop in the village of Grasmere in the lake district, where it is made. You can, however, order online but unfortunately delivery is £5.95. They will, however, deliver it to virtually anywhere in the world. The shop has it's own website which is hugely informative and will tell you all the history of the recipe and the shop; www.grasmeregingerbread.co.uk. Grasmere gingerbread is not like any gingerbread you've ever had before - it's not that hard crunchy stuff that you make into the shape of a man and then bite it's head off. It's a much more classy affair and only comes in large ... Read the complete review
