unsworth’s yard, cartmel
having never been to cartmel, i had no preconceptions as to what would be there – all i knew was that it is the home of sticky toffee pudding and seat of l’enclume.
little did i know, it’s also the home of the absolute gem named unsworth’s yard.
with a brewery, cheese shop and deli, and wine store/coffee shop all sharing one courtyard, this really is the place to be on a sunny day. there aren’t many tables available so, if you manage to get one, keep hold of it.
if you’re not a beer drinker, you can simply press your nose against the glass of the brewery and marvel at how professional it all looks.
before you decide on what to drink, take a look in the cheese shop – where you’re given a sample of pretty much every cheese they sell. you’re bound to come away with something to nibble on. not a cheese fan either? how about one of these doughnuts instead?
come in the sun, stay for the afternoon. come in the rain, stay anyway.
