Happened across this wonderful shop (although shop doesn't do it justice) when visiting glorious Cartmel, we popped into to have a browse and stayed half an hour learning about the cheese makers art and indeed all things cheese !! It was an absolute joy to hear about the origins of the cheeses on sale and how they differ from those... More

What a fantastic combination a bakery & cheese shop all in one, great products, great service & no pressure to buy because once you have tasted the products you'll want to buy them anyway. You can even buy a selection of products to have with beer or wine purchased in the same yard. Talk to the cheesemonger about your likes... More

All the cheeses just sampled in the lunch we had eaten were here to buy and more. They were knowledgable and helpful and samples were enjoyed. Not cheap but different!

This little square tucked out of the way in Cartmel besides the Priory is definitely a must visit-preferably on an empty stomach and a nice sunny day! The cheese shop itself is super with a range of cheeses to suit every pallet from the soft through smelly to hard. Large cheeses, small cheeses, round and square- it has it all.... More

The Lake District is blessed with Cheese Shops of all descriptions. But this one is a little bit special. The owner (i think) was a very nice guy who was passionate about cheese. The shop itself is basically a temperature controlled chill room (have never seen anything like it before). The selection of cheese has been very well thought through... More

What a lovely shop. Passed a lovely 20 minutes in this shop talking to the owner, he was happy to let us try any of the cheeses we fancied. A must is the marmite and cheese loaf, my other half loves marmite and I don't but he said ermmmm!!!! Again a absolute must for any foodies.
