I LOVE THIS PLACE!
Aug 2021
I cannot say enough nice words about this shop and their super helpful staff!
We ordered a cheese hamper for the races and at first I thought that is was quite expensive at £45...but I decided to treat ourselves and I am so glad that I did.
The lady who I ordered it from was so helpful at suggesting alternatives to the blue cheese included.
I collected it and all I can say is WOW!! It was beautifully presented and they even loaned me one of their gorgeous chopping boards. We are still eating it two days later. Highly recommended. Oh and you must try their ploughman's chutney...now that is something else!

Thank you!!

Yummy
Aug 2021 • Couples
We had a selection of 3 cheeses and a bottle of wine from the pub in Unsworth’s Yard. The lady in the cheese shop was very helpful and opened some delivery boxes in order to get me some chilli jam. Unfortunately, my husband did not find the man in the cheese shop as helpful when he has ordering the cheese but he may have been having an off day.
You get good portions of cheese which they are happy to wrap and you can take home what you cannot eat. Worth a visit and most importantly, the cheese we had was delicious.

Good Pizza!
Jul 2021 • Family
Got take away pizzas - the pizzas were tasty - the service was great - pizzas were ready within about 10 mins - though very noisy race goers in the courtyard while we waited. Calzone was a little small….

AMAZING CHEESES.
Jun 2021 • Friends
AMAZING CHEESE! The best cheese I've ever had we now even ordering our wedding cheese cake after tasting such brilliant cheeses. There is a wide variety of cheese and they help you decide if you can't. So many selections of blue cheese which i highly recommend. There is also a little shop attached which sells the cheese to either take home or eat in with a selection of chutneys and soughdough crackers and freshly made bread. Wouldn't go anywhere else for cheese in the lake district. Lovely to eat in with family and friends enjoying a lovely glass of port with the selection of cheeses.

COVID non compliant
Jun 2021
The cheese is excellent. However the COVID compliance was a disgrace. Customers with no masks and no social distancing. The staff totally uninterested in ensuring compliance despite our requests. My wife and I are vulnerable and we decided to immediately leave even though we had placed an order. Poor management unfortunately as their cheese selection is excellent.

Disappointing
May 2021 • Couples
The shop is definitely not all of that, and not nearly as portrayed on the website. A very small selection of cheeses in my opinion, but even more disappointing than that, was the fact that after I spent quite a substantial amount in the shop, I found when I got home that two of the cheeses I bought had a very short shelf life left, and I was never made aware of it. I contacted them on their website and via email, but they haven’t even made an effort to respond. So, please check best before dates before you pay, because you will not be taken seriously afterwards. Not worth a visit, sadly

Hello, We have not received any emails or contact from yourself. Please could you contact us on info@cartmelcheeses.co.uk. To say we have a small selection of cheese is a suprise. We have over 50 cheeses on the counter. Could you please let us know which cheeses were short dated? As all cheese is cut fresh, wrapped and labelled with a 14day best before label. I feel the review is very unfair.

Great range of cheeses
Sep 2020
We went to Cartmel in order to visit the shop/cafe where it is claimed 'Sticky Toffee Pudding' was invented although I understand fthere are other claimants to this accolade. On our way there we came across Cartmel Cheeses. The shop has a huge range of cheese on sale and we chose to buy three types that were local to the area. We ate the cheese over the next few days, they were all excellent.

Cartmel Cheeses is well worth visiting if you are ever in the area.
