“lots of cheeses”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

cartmell cheeses was tucked away down a lovely little village street and as you opened the door, the smells were lovelly, lots of cheeses locally produced however although a very friendly reception, cheeses were a little over priced (still bought some though)..just love good cheeses.

“What a fab cheese shop!”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

This place is cheese heaven! A fantastic range of delicious cheeses, served by knowledgable staff.
Not cheap by any means, but the quality is sensational. They also sell great home baked bread, but get there early, they sell out quickly!

“Sensory cheeses!”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Wow, this place was a real find. We literally were walking past and saw the cheese in the window and had to pop in. The smell was incredible and we were given tastes of just about everything available. The staff were attentive and knowledgeable and were not bothered one bit by our lack of knowledge on the subject. We spent a good bit of time sampling before taking home a delicious Reblochon which we melted in with some potatoes, cream and bacon. Heaven in a cheese!!

“Heavenly cheeses”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Set in a lovely courtyard. Excellent range of cheese with a knowledgeable owner who let us try different cheeses to help us decide which to buy. We bought 3 types and they were heaven. A bit more expensive than usual but they are the real thing!

“Hidden gem”
Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

It had been a few years since I last visited Cartmel and this wasn't here last time. This Shop a diagnostic delivery is wonderful, with a great range of cheeses, and friendly staff offering a sample of anything that took your fancy.
