I called in to the shop after being recommended by the owner of the B&B I stayed in Cartmel. The shop is amazing. The staff are very knowledgable and helpful offering tastings to help with choosing the cheeses. The quality of the cheese I bought was second to none. If you like cheese this is the shop to visit if... More

Very appealing selection of cheeses, exquisitely displayed, but we didn't find the staff particularly friendly or engaging. No-one else was in the shop, but they barely looked up when we went in, and didn't seem too bothered about chatting to us or helping us to make a decision. I think it must have been obvious that we intended to buy... More

Lovely trip here with my partner and two friends. Great selection of cheeses (although only one or two local choices) from all over the UK. Very helpful staff who were happy to let us try as many as we wanted to make sure we took something home that we were happy with. A little bakery in the adjoining shop to... More

If you visit and find it anything less than a gorgeous thing, you hate life. The place is alive...little beasties at work on amazing dairy products. The climate controlled room is a magical closet of ethereal funk. What an experience! But some cheese, get some bread, perhaps procure a nice chutney, then find a little corner of lovely Cartmel to... More

Went here for some tasting and bought some to take home. Large selection in a refrigerated room. Lovely owners who were extremely helpful. The bread shop is attached and we bought some fresh baked sour dough with rosemary and seasalt- lovely.

We found this place by accident while touring the area - what a treat! I love cheese and enjoying sampling from local dairies. The gentlemen in the shop were very knowledgeable. We sampled a number of very good cheeses and learned about their production, etc. They also have a bakery on the premises and kindly sliced the yummy baguette we... More

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!
