Absolutely enjoyed the cafe and shopping experience here, a real gem. A really good place to stop off for coffee and cake, followed by some shopping for cheese and nice gifts.

The cheese was fantastic as expected but I was surprised by the quality of the tea and cakes sold here. They were very good and greatly exceeded expectations.

Cheese shop and cafe with indoor and outdoor seating. Definitely worth paying £3.50 for the tour. Our guide was both informative and enthusiastic and went through the whole process from milk to mature cheese. It tastes fantastic too
