The Blaenafon Cheddar Company, Pontypool

#2 of 8 in Things to do in Pontypool
At The Blaenafon Cheddar Company, you'll see award-winning cheeses as they mature 90 m (300 ft) underground. The family-run business offers tours and tastings of the facility--you will, of course, be able to purchase cheese to take home. The company's cheeses are all handmade, free of artificial preservatives and colorings, and suitable for vegetarians. They are also hand-dipped into colored wax to extend their natural shelf life. You'll find that many cheeses made and sold here are flavored with local whiskeys and liqueurs, which act as natural preservatives. A cheddar hamper can make an ideal surprise for someone back home, so consider picking one up at the gift shop.

  • My partner Sarah and I booked for a cheese tasting experience. Lovely place with lovely people, the cheeses are exceptional and hand made too, chutneys are just out of this world. If you can book a cheese tasting experience, you won't regret it. We will definitely be future customers.
  • In a small group, we got to hear the story of the family-run cheese business and got to know the owner and her partner. We saw the facilities and got to taste so many delicious cheeses. It's an incredible value for money and it goes without saying that I'll be a Blaenafon Cheddar customer in the future!
