Owner and staff so friendly, knowledgeable and clearly passionate about what they do.
How nice to see and taste what goes into the product, in these days of mass produced foods with confusing lablels. Great way for all ages to learn about real food.
Wide variety to please all tastes, and lots of other food and drink on sale to compliment your choice of cheeses.
Free car park just up the road, is close to other tourist attractions in Blaenafon to visit while in the area.

Terrific attraction where you can see multi award-winning Blaenavon Cheddar actually being made on the premises. The welcome is friendly and the choice of cheeses (many laced with liquer) is wide.
