Courtyard Dairy

The Courtyard Dairy is a unique, specialist cheese-shop and cheese-maturer, owned and operated by Andy and Kathy Swinscoe.  

In 2017, the shop expanded into new premises with a visitor centre telling the history and story of farmhouse cheese, a café serving cheese-based dishes (and, of course, coffee!), and a cheese production room, alongside plenty of free on-site parking.

The shop itself has become a renowned destination shop, where regulars and visitors alike enjoy the opportunity to sample and purchase some of the finest cheese to be found in Europe, whilst benefiting from Andy and Kathy’s comprehensive and entertaining cheese knowledge. Andy and Kathy now invite visitors to learn how to make cheese in this purpose-built cheese dairy.

You’ll be guided through the background science and technical theory of how to make cheeses, and then experience hands-on cheese-making of two distinctly different cheeses. And you’ll get to take home the cheese you made.

The cheese-making course runs from 9.30am - 3pm and includes lunch. Each course is for up to eight participants, with each participant using separate cheese vats and moulding equipment to ensure everyone gets a full experience.
