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.

Called in whilst visiting Cartmel. Lots of interesting cheeses on display for sale. The man behind the counter said he would leave us alone to browse, but please if you need any help or advice, or indeed if you wish to sample a particular cheese just let me know. This alone was a refreshing change from the usual way some... More

Just got home after 3 hour drive from lakes with cheese bread and pies from the Cartmel Cheese Shop. All 3 on a plate with some salad from the garden. Perfect.

Visited here in July and had a lovely hour sat in the sunny courtyard. We bought gorgeous bread and cheese from the shop and wine from the shop opposite! Absolutely beautiful cheese and once finished we went back in to buy more to take home! Lovely location and next time we'll visit the micro brewery in the yard! thoroughly recommend... More

These for me was a fantastic find as we originally were not going to Cartmel, there was a food market on in the and after noticing signs at he road side about the market we decide to go Carmel and have a look. The village has very tight streets and parking can be hard in the village but I would... More

Cartmel Cheeses in Unsworth's Yard was a brilliant find during our stop in Cartmel. In fact the whole of Unsworth's Yard is worth seeking out. The choice of cheeses on offer in the shop is fantastically mouth-watering. Slightly on the pricey side, but we would say worth it for the quality and standard. Also plenty of lovely bread, preserves and... More

We visit the Lake District every couple of years and always visit here as it is a must. Great cheeses with an amazing bakery linked to it and a micro-brewery next door. Seriously, what more do you want or need?!

We always stock up on local cheese from this place when we visit Cartmel. The staff are very knowledgable and can advise on what food matches the cheeses. They also supply L'Enclume so what we normally do is have a wide ranging cheese board at the restaurant on a Sat night, note the cheeses we really like and then buy... More
