I bought a cheese making day experience for myself for Christmas. I hoped it would be fun and it certainly was. Warm and friendly people working together in a beautiful part of the country making delicious cheese, This trip was everything could have wished for and I highly recommend it to anyone thinking about learning more about cheese. I went... More

Stop here every year on way to and from our October holiday in Dolgellau. Yet again this year the Little Hereford cheese and homemade soup and bread made a great lunch. Then we stocked up on Smoked Hereford, Little Hereford and Blue Monk cheeses, local beers and liqueurs - in both directions!

All the staff were friendly upon arrival and I decided to do the tour. It was good to see the process from start to finish and you could tell the lady who took the tour was passionate about her craft. Lots of cheese to sample and buy as well as other locally sourced products. There is also a cafe for... More

We bought some of their cheese from Ludlow market, and found that the dairy was close to where we were staying so decided to visit. The place is delightful, with a shop and cafe, with wonderful food and drink. We paid a small fee and had a lovely guided tour round the dairy. It was totally fascinating, and very informative,...

Came here for lunch with husband and baby. Unfortunately missed out on outdoor seating. Ordered the cheese board for two - what great value. The cheese is divine! Recommend for a lunch with a difference. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the food they serve. Very good value.

A quaint little cottage industry. Wonderful cheese and good cafe. The tour is well worth the price. Very informative and fun. A good hidden gem.

A lovely little stop for those who like cheese or just like to see how things are made. We took the 30 minute tour (£3 per person) and found the cheesemaker who lead the tour informative and entertaining. The tour is great for children too as you are invited to do the 'splat' test which is throwing bits of half... More

My daughter and I stopped here for a glass of local Herefordshire apple juice on the way to Hay on Wye and enjoyed a pleasant sojourn in the sunny garden. There was a sneaky chicken who alternated between looking for grubs and begging at the tables which kept us amused. Keep your fingers clear of her! I would have liked... More
