Culinary and visual chocolate delights worthy of our iconic Lake District surroundings

Our aim

To create culinary and visual chocolate delights worthy of our iconic Lake District surroundings.

Our offerings are centered around our luxury handmade chocolates, yet sneakily, we are known to dabble in a range of unique Lake District Gifts. Each individual chocolate is made from fantastic high quality Belgian chocolate, lakeland double cream and a range of ‘special’ ingredients from ‘Marc de Champagne’ to ‘Rich Cappuccino’ to ‘Baileys Irish Cream’ to ‘Hazelnut Praline’ to name but a few.

Our location

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. Kendal Mint cake is just one of the range of fantastic sweets and candies on display, we also stock a wide range of local jams & relishes, lakeland cards and books, biscuits, fudges and oh so much more… We look forwarding to welcoming you to our beautiful shop, whether it be to sample our delicious, freshly made treats, or to take a souvenir home to remind you of your Lakeland visit. A visit to Grasmere would not be complete until you have paid us a call. Samples are always out to try so come and say hello!!
