I must say, when I am writing this article I can’t really stop thinking about our newest addition to our booking extras – the awesome handmade chocolates from the Chocolate Cottage in Grasmere. Having said that, the last thing we should feel guilty about eating chocolate when we are on holiday.
The Chocolate Cottage is located on the edge of the idyllic Lakeland Village of Grasmere, set up by local couple Richard and Angela Barker. Both of whom you will see multitasking: creating the delightful Chocolates or welcoming the range of customers we happily receive through our doors. Their aim is to create culinary and visual chocolate delights worthy of our iconic Lake District surroundings. Their offerings are centered around our luxury handmade chocolates, yet sneakily, they are known to dabble in a range of unique Lake District Gifts. – source: Chocolate Cottage
