Really knowledgeable and lots of tasting to be had. The cheese section was very simply a wooden counter heavily laden with a range of cheese. No pomp or circumstance just really good cheeses!

I've accidentally left a review for Cartmel Cheeses on the Unsworth Yard Brewery site thinking it was the same company. This is such a quaint Yard with everything you could need for a really great picnic. We picked up the most delicious cheese, bread and chutney. There's such a huge selection and it is all absolutely delicious, I'm genuinely salivating... More

Visited Cartmel for the weekend & recommended to go here. We bought a selection of 3 cheeses, bread from the bakers & beer from the brewery and sat outside under the heaters. The lady serving was so friendly and gave us tasters of different cheeses then wrapped up what we hadn't eaten. We will certainly return.

Excellent range of cheeses, their origins given in detail (where known and relevant) and their constituents. Tasters offered without hesitation Easy to over-buy when faced with the choice available, and can get expensive. Quality, however, should overcome!

Heard about this gem from a colleague recently so we took the opportunity to visit during our stay with close family in Allithwaite.

For any cheese lover this is not to be missed. A most amazing range of cheeses and the staff are so helpful. Visited a few times and always come home with a great variety of cheese.
