I have visited often and am never disappointed. Staff are always ready to share their knowledge of the cheeses they stock and there is always something new to try. Also a good range of beers, cheese biscuits and sweet biscuits etc if looking for gifts.

Fantastic array of cheeses including some made in Hartington, the dales & further afield. Very friendly staff to help you choose, but knowing when to stop is your own responsibility!

This shop is located overlooking the village duck pond. Clean and smart shop with very good range of cheese, helpful staff. This is a speciality shop which is an important part of this very attractive village. Well worth visiting.

Very friendly and knowledgeable staff and a good selection of some not so familiar cheeses and other nibbles. Well worth a visit.
