Glyneithinog, our home, is set in beautiful countryside overlooking the river Cych. Located just a few miles from Newcastle Emlyn, Cenarth and Boncath, you leave the tourist trail far behind as you meander through country lanes to find us.
In our visitor center you can discover how cheese is made from the viewing gallery, watching the cheesemakers below hard at work making Caws Cenarth’s finest offerings. The best time to visit is between 12.30 and 3pm if you want to see the cheese being made – but we are open from 10am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, including Bank Holidays, and 9am to 1pm on Saturdays.
You’ll also be given a chance to taste each and every one of our cheeses in our shop and learn more about the history of making cheese.
Large groups are welcome – but best ring in advance to let us know you’re coming. Schools, local and community organisations, and so on, are also welcome on arrangement.
Wales has produced some of the worlds best cheese for centuries, however it is only since Caws Cenarth came on the scene that the world finally knew about it. Gwynfor and Thelma Adams along with their very talented son Carwyn, have in my opinion drawn a line in the sand when it comes to cheese making, and it is a line many would struggle to cross. Not only can you visit the farm where the magic is created, you can take a tour and learn some of the spells that go into making this wonderful cheese. There is also a special trail for children which really impressed me as a lot of thought went into making sure that children get the most out of their visit too. The final act of your visit is to join Thelma or one of the family for a tasting session. Secretly I could of carried on tasting all of the different cheese's but my diet wouldn't allow. There is a reason why our future king ‘Prince Charles' is a huge fan of Caws Cenarth Cheese and I'm sure after your visit, you will be too.
The Lamb of Rhos shines as white as snow in the afternoon sun, making an immediate impression on the senses. The history behind this lovely building is long and interesting, and is believed to have stood since c1830,
