A must!

Fabulous cheeses, well worth a visit. The woman was very helpful and took time to get the right cheese for us. I would advise you to visit, you won't leave empty handed!

Bought to cheeses which were fantastic - the gentleman who served us didn't rush us and had so much knowledge - definitely will visit again.

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
