All the Cheese | Cheddar, England

23 November 2014

Elle and I visited Cheddar to see Cheddar Gorge on our Somerset day trip, however almost immediately after arriving our main focus became cheese. All the cheese. You can't blame us, can you?

Cheddar is obviously famous for being the home of cheddar cheese. Originally, cheddar could only be considered real cheddar if it was made within 30 miles of Wells Cathedral. As far back as the 12th century cheddar cheese was only made from the cows grazing near Cheddar Village. The caves in Cheddar Gorge allowed for the cheese to be stored at the perfect temperature and humidity, giving the village of Cheddar an advantage in cheese making. Today however, cheddar cheese is made around the world. Only one cheddar cheese producer still exists in Cheddar Village.

A trip to Cheddar Gorge Cheese Company was a must. Just small building a few minutes away from the gorge, the Cheddar Gorge Cheese Company is easy to miss. However, inside is heaven. With over 20 free cheese samples and a small area to see the production of the cheese, it's definitely worth a visit! Let's just say I left Cheddar happy and FULL.

Happy Sunday!
