My favourite shop. We always stop when in Hartingtion. Stilton a must buy as one of only 3 places allowed to make and call it Stilton. Staff always helpful. Choice of cheese mind blowing.

I am sorry you had a disappointing experience. Our range of cheeses is reduced in the counter at this time of year as we are quiet before our mad silly Christmas period starts. The cheeses we keep in the counter are the most popular ones...More

No tasters, everything pre packed. Not particularly friendly and expensive uninspiring cheeses. Also the same local beers sold were far cheaper at the village store. As cheese fanatics we were very disappointed. If you want good cheese and service go to ‘love cheese’ in YorkMore

I have visited often and am never disappointed. Staff are always ready to share their knowledge of the cheeses they stock and there is always something new to try. Also a good range of beers, cheese biscuits and sweet biscuits etc if looking for gifts.

I used to visit Hartington when the cheese factory was in full throttle. That explains the raison d’etre for the cheese shop. Sadly, the factory has been demolished, but - the cheese lives on. We were a large family group holidaying locally, and when my...More

Fantastic array of cheeses including some made in Hartington, the dales & further afield. Very friendly staff to help you choose, but knowing when to stop is your own responsibility!

This shop is located overlooking the village duck pond. Clean and smart shop with very good range of cheese, helpful staff. This is a speciality shop which is an important part of this very attractive village. Well worth visiting.
