The cheese shop is open for business and will be happy to serve you in person/deliver out to the car.
You can also order online for delivery nationwide: local delivery is free, otherwise charged at £5.95 for orders under £55.
Unfortunately, the café, museum and toilets are permanently closed. There is plans afoot to build an extension which will house a museum and a new events/food service space in 2022.
In this interim period takeaway coffee and ice cream available 8-8 everyday; and on sunny weekends outside savoury and sweet crepes are available 11-3.

After many years working for some of the finest cheesemongers in France and England, Andy & Kathy set up their small cheese shop in 2012. Quickly winning many awards [click here for details] including World Cheese Awards Cheesemonger of the Year, and enjoyed by Royalty, this special cheese shop deserves its position as of one of the best in the UK.
Specialising in a small range of cheeses, The Courtyard Dairy really concentrates on its ethos to support and champion farmhouse cheese-makers within the UK, with an emphasis on unpasteurised, raw milk cheese from single herds. These rare, hard-to-find cheeses are expertly aged on-site to add an extra depth of flavour. Many of these cheeses are unique; all are made by hand by true artisans. You’ll experience, taste and enjoy ‘proper’ cheese.
