Visit the Gateway to the Cotswolds

Burford is a town which is characterised by its beautiful old stone houses and attractive Tudor and Georgian frontages. Walk up the hill and you almost feel like you’re in a period costume drama. You’ll find The Cotswold Cheese Company on the left next to the butcher’s. There’s a picnic table outside so on a warm day, you can sit outside and enjoy your wares.

Taste Burford Cheese

To get a true taste of Cotswold cheese, try Burford cheese which is produced in nearby Kingham. It’s made from Jersey milk in the summer and matured to be sold at 6 months old in the winter. It’s very loosely based on a Beaufort; being a firm cheese with a slightly nutty flavour and golden buttery colour.

Try Local Soft Cheese

For a soft local cheese try St Oswald, an organic rind-washed semi-soft cheese which becomes richer, stronger and more aromatic as it ages. It’s normally matured from 1 to 3 months during which time the rind changes from yellow to orange-brown, and meaty, savoury flavours develop, with a buttery texture. This cheese is so local, it’s collected from the farm.

Join The Cheese Tasting Club

If you can’t visit the shop in person, treat yourself or a loved one, to membership of the Cheese Tasting Club. You’ll receive a monthly cheese hamper with generous wedges.
