Really interesting to see part of the cheese making process.Tour takes about half hour and well worth it.Samples to taste and to buy. We also bought excellent sausages made from local pigs fed on the whey which is left over from the cheese making process.

We stop here regularly on our trips between Shropshire and South Wales - it's by far the best place we have found. Lovely, home-cooked, light lunches and friendly staff. The selection of cheeses and chutneys is great and the Black Butter is a must!

We checked in advance that they were running tours and would advise calling them before you go. Tours tend to run on Monday and Wednesday mornings (and Fridays in summer). Cost is £3.50. This is a very small, family run business in a converted barn,...More
