Thank you for your review.
I am surprised our ladies didn't tell you what the cheeses taste like as they all know about the cheeses we stock.
Good to have feedback though so I can speak to our team.
Hopefully you will call again when...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.
A great little cheese shop that also stocks other local produce such as beers and preserves.
Larger weights of cheese better ordered on their website as they don't always have all cheeses in the shop.
Try the Dovedale blue!

This little shop has been going for years and even on a rainy Derbyshire day it draws in crowds. Accessed through a short garden/yard off the picturesque Hartington village centre, it has a vast range of cheeses produced locally and also some other specialist cheeses....More

We have been trying to work out how long the shop has been open now and we think it is around 40 years.
We hope you will call in again when you are next in the...More
