Cropwell Bishop Creamery and Cheesemaker's Shop, Nottingham


Cropwell Bishop Creamery has been crafting mouthwateringly delicious Stilton for more than three generations. Using traditional methods passed down by their grandfather and fathers, cousins Robin and Ben Skailes now produce a range of world-famous, award-winning blue cheese from their creamery in the village of Cropwell Bishop. As well as their renowned classic Blue Stilton and Blue Shropshire cheese, they have also developed Beauvale - a very popular soft, mild blue cheese that is flying out the door!

The creamery sources all its milk from small, family-run dairy farms in the nearby Peak District, where cows graze on the area’s lush grass to produce the perfect milk for making cheese. In the creamery, the experienced artisan cheese-makers still use age-old methods to make their fine cheese; hand-ladling the curds from the whey before individually smoothing, turning and grading each cheese by hand.

The string of awards that Cropwell Bishop Creamery has won over the years is proof that their traditional production methods really do make a superior cheese. In 2016, Cropwell Bishop Blue Shropshire won the Supreme Champion title at the British Cheese awards out of 910 entries. This was closely followed by another Supreme Champion win by the creamery’s flagship Blue Stilton, which beat 750 cheeses for be crowned overall winner at the Great Yorkshire Show! Another highlight for the business has been both Cropwell Bishop Blue Stilton and Beauvale being awarded the coveted 3-star award in the Great Taste Awards, the ultimate stamp of approval from the foodie world. Beauvale also won best overall cheese in the 2016 Great British Food Awards! Cropwell Bishop Creamery’s cheese is stocked in some of the UK’s finest retailers, including Fortnum and Mason and Harrods as well as in Waitrose and M&S supermarkets. Cheese can also be purchased direct from the creamery online or via local and national stockists.

The Cropwell Bishop Creamery Cheesemaker’s Shop, located on the Creamery site offers the full range of Cropwell Bishop cheese as well as carefully selected crackers, biscuits, chutneys and gifts. It also sells freshly ground coffee made with fresh milk from the creamery and locally produced pork pies, pastries and bread on selected days.
