Although Northumberlandia has its own cafe, if you want something a little special I recommend you head a couple of miles down the road to the Cheese Loft café and shop at The Cheese Farm, Blagdon, Seaton Burn. It's reasonably well signposted. There's a good selection of things on the menu including a very nice afternoon tea. The charming staff make you feel welcome and the coffee (free refills) is pretty good. As well as fine food you get free Wi-Fi and there is a tempting selection of cheeses made on the farm to be had at the counter. The cheese is hand made from locally sourced milk. We decided to buy the Blagdon Blue, Brinkburn & the Nettled flavour cow's cheese. Please note that the café is only accessible via a flight of stairs, there is no disabled access. Tours to see the cheese made can be booked in advance.

    We don't have one round here either but next time I pass one I'll be on the look out for it.

    Cornish Yarg is one of our favourite cheeses and does have a different flavour to the rest. They also make another wrapped in garlic leaves but we don't like this as much as the nettle. . Unfortunately the only place round here we can buy it is Waitrose - a 40 mile round trip....

    They weren't particularly forthcoming about how the cheese was made but I guess they want you to go on the tour for that. I haven't tasted Cornish Yarg (but of course want to now) so I can't compare. All I can say is that they were delicious & I was sad to see the last morsel disappear.

    Sounds a good place to visit. I'm intrigued by the Brinkburn & the Nettled flavour cow's cheese. Is it a bit like Cornish Yarg which is wrapped in nettle leaves?
