No trip to Harrington is complete until we have sampled the cheese at the village cheese shop and packed enough Stilton to last us until next time we are in Harrington.

Hartington use to be the home place of stilton cheese but the factory is now closed and currently being demolished. The cheese shop offers a selection of local cheeses and is more like a deli than a tourist attraction. We did by a selection of...More

Thank you for your encouraging words. Glad you enjoyed the trip to our shop. We are continuing to work hard to keep the cheese tradition alive in Hartington.
