Cartmel Cheeses

OPENING TIMES: Monday - Sunday, 10am - 5pm

Cartmel cheeses is Cumbria's newest cheese shop. We are situated in the heart of Cartmel opposite the Priory entrance at No1 Unsworth's Yard. The shop opened on the 5th of June 2010 with a select range of around 30 cheeses.

The cheeses we sell have been carefully selected as we believe they represent the best of what the UK and Europe have to offer. Of course, there were many more cheeses we could have had and hope to have in the future, but the selection was and will always be based on cheeses, cheesemakers and agents or affineurs we at the shop have a strong working relationship with and absolute confidence in.

We have visited the majority of the British cheesemakers we buy from and have even been fortunate enough to visit the maturing rooms in Piedmont, Italy where Giorgio Craverro selects our parmesan for us and the caves and cellars outside Lyon in south west France where Herve Mons matures our French cheeses for us. We have an uncompromising approach to quality and our aim is to get the best cheeses to the customer, in the best possible condition.

We will always encourage customers to taste the cheeses we have before they buy, so you can be sure you will always leave the shop with exactly what you really wanted... even if it's not what you came in for!
