“2nd time around!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

I am back visiting the lake district and so I couldn't miss a visit to what I thought would be my little secret - Grasmere Chocolate Cottage, but others have found it as well. I couldn't wait to get my hands on those gorgeous truffles - hand made by Angela and Richard, the proprietors. They have now expanded this little shop into an emporium of goodies, not only the array of handmade chocs but little bags of pick and mix type sweeties to make the journey pass by and delightful little gifts to take home, for your friends and family.
Grasmere Chocolate Cottage is open all year around so great to pop by if you are on either an autumn or spring getaway. Just off the 'Wordsworth Cottage' roundabout along on the left - and there is always parking opposite.

Not good for the waistline, but a little treat occassionally. Great stuff - keep it coming Angela and Richard, see you next year (if not before!!) Wendy Patrick, Northampton

“Best ever...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2013

Grasmere already has many attractions but this one, situated close to where we parked at the main carpark was worth crossing the road for. Bought some of the nicest chocolates of the week away, and filled our bag with many of the gifts required to keep the relatives smiling!!!
