Due to the recent Government advice regarding COVID-19, we have made the hard decision to close our shop. Unfortunately, we are not able to take orders online due to our stock being in our shop.
We wish all of our customers the best and hope to see you all soon when we re-open.
Welcome to The Cheeseboard Sidmouth
Welcome. Whether you have been in the shop when visiting Sidmouth or just come across us on the internet we hope you enjoy this experience.
If you have been a physical visitor then you’ll know how extensive our range is and that it covers much more than cheese. You’ll also, we hope, be happy that you are able to get all the things that you liked when you were down in sunny [sometimes] East Devon.
If you have only been here electronically then I would encourage you to browse all parts of the shop and maybe use the “contact us” facility if you have any questions.
We are not boffins when it comes to websites, but we know some people that are and one of the parameters we set was that we should be able to navigate it without difficulty – working on the premise that if we could then you could.
We Supply Hampers
Although we have set hampers, please be aware that all our orders go out in hampers so are suitable as presents.
We are, though, open to suggestions if you think it could be improved.
We are fortunate to live and work in an area of outstanding natural beauty which also has a fine tradition of producing excellent food.
By “local cheese” we mean cheeses produced in Devon, Dorset, Cornwall and Somerset. More or less “the peninsular”.
We have sorted the cheeses so you can search by milk type or cheese type and used abbreviations with each cheese so that you can double check that it is suitable for yourself or any guests. Those with dairy sensitivity can usually eat sheep’ or goats’ milk cheeses without ill effects – but not always.
We appreciate that since you are on a specialist website that you probably have a greater than average level of knowledge about cheese but here are a few facts you may not know. We hope you find them useful.
Buffalo milk cheese is the lowest in cholesterol but the highest in fat and protein. Goats’ milk cheese is next lowest in cholesterol but lowest in fat. Sheep’s’ milk cheese is next lowest in cholesterol and second highest in protein. Finally, cows’ milk cheeses have the greatest variety.
Enjoy your shop
