We popped in for a little slice of local cheese, but stayed for the Cheese toasties, and the cake.... well mostly for the carrot cake! We arrived around lunch time and were warmly welcomed, and offered a selection of sample cheeses, preserves, chutneys and pickles....More

See the cheese being made before your eyes and then buy and take some home with you. The shop has a collection of local beer and cider, along with crackers and other related items. Well worth a visit.
