Holy cheese!!!

So many types of cheese to be chosen from. You can smell cheese from outside the shop. Gorgeous place in a small village. There is a nice bakery inside too. Perfect.

Arrrived after 4.pm today to find the shop closed. Apparently it closes every day at 4, contrary to stating 5pm on trip advisor. Very disappointing as we had travelled a long way and were planning to buy lots of cheese for the weekend.No way to run a business!

We stopped in Cartmel and found it to be a lovely place and stumbled across this shop. It's part of a deli that also sells bread and other delights. The range of cheeses were good and you can taste each one before you decide. Super range of cheeses, but it was a little pricey, however I guess you pay a... More

There are not many thing to do in the town, we check a webpage to check any suggestion of what to do, and we discover this cheese shop. I was expecting to be like a factory of at least a place where I was going to learn something about the cheese. Anyway, I love cheese, so we bought three pieces... More

We went to visit Cartmel on our holiday last week! Having had some fabulous creamy Lancashire cheese in Orton the day before we decided to purchase some more of the same kind ! It did not look right( rather dry) but we were assured that it was the right kind. We bought a reasonable amount (£7) and travelled home. What... More

We were blown away by the choice of breads and cheeses. Rosemary and salt sour dough a real find, and a vast selection of aged cheeses from across the country. If you are in Cartmel you must visit this place, it's an experience.
