Snow’s falling outside but we’re looking ahead to traveling of England in the spring to visit some of our favorite cheesemakers! If you imagine hanging with British royalty, or at least British 🧀 royalty, this tour is for you!
During our four-day stay in Somerset, guests reside at the exquisitely-restored English manor, @northcadburycourt- the family home of the legendary cheesemaker Jamie Montgomery!
Cheese Journeys provides this exclusive once a year experience with Jamie and his family as he lead us into the world of British clothbound Cheddar and family lore. He takes us on a walking tour of the estate which includes the dairy, cheese making, Jersey cows, and the legendary castle ruins of Camelot.
Photograph borrowed from @ardourandbow - one of the lovely guests at our event agency FAM visit this week. We are still buzzing from meeting all of you and learning so much from you. This was our beautiful dining table in the warmth of our wood panelled North Hall - where our guests enjoyed a hilarious and educational session of ‘call my bluff’ wine tasting with @vine_wine1965 - a brilliant way to kick off a very special evening. The table glowed with candlelight, and autumnal flowers by @jmfloraldesigns. Next we were all in awe of the stunning flavours created by @hometabledining - a meal to remember. Dessert decadence was served in our sitting room by the fire, whilst our guests took time to chat, to laugh together, to have their photos taken at @theproperbooth, or to try their snooker skills on our giant table - brought here from a Scottish castle. Host and owner Archie Montgomery entertained our guests throughout, and shared wonderful tales of growing up in this incredible house, and it’s astounding history. Last but by no means least - it was time for a spot of roulette and cards in our underground casino - huge winnings at stake (albeit not real cash!), and others danced the night away in our wine cellar disco. An amazing evening - thank you so much to everyone who came, and to all those involved in putting on such a fabulous event. .

One more song 😅 - In our 5 years we have never had a #weddingparty finish early!
So we’ve hosted our first ever FAM visit for #eventprofs#conciergeservices#partyplanners and more - and it has been an amazing experience for us. We have been visited by the most incredible group of people, and shared insights and knowledge, as well as having a huge amount of FUN! The event began with a ‘lucky dip’ to choose rooms for the night, as every bedroom here is completely different to the next, and truly stunning. Our guests then had an opportunity to relax and explore a little, before we all met in our ‘Morning Room’ (pictured) for tea, coffee, homemade biscuits and handcrafted Montgomery cheeses from our estate. Our owner Archie Montgomery talked to everyone about the cheesemaking, and then we moved to our beautiful Ballroom for an entertaining chat from Archie all about the incredible history of North Cadbury Court. As he explained, when the Court was restored for use as the exclusive hire venue it is today, his primary goal was to change as little as possible, to preserve the wonderful feeling of ‘home’, and to keep the soul of this amazing house. Our guests could feel this from the moment they arrived 😊. Next instalment to come shortly....
A little throwback to Sam and Nick’s evening food at @northcadburycourt last year. A winning combination of Mac ‘n’ cheese boats and pulled pork with our homemade North Carolina sauce - we’ll even customise the labels for you!
Today I popped over to @northcadburycourt to photograph the wonderful balloon and floral arch that Caroline of @fleur_provocateur created in prep for some weddings next year. Doesn’t it look flipping ace?! As does the lovely Caroline 🌺🌸🎈
We returned to the beautiful @northcadburycourt this weekend to supply our cocktail services for an 5th wedding anniversary 🎉🥳💃🏼🕺🏽 We helped guide our clients with their very own personalised cocktail menu which went down a storm on the evening! Setting up 2 cocktail stations for the party.
The celebrations were in full swing with the impress live band on show 🎶
Thank you for having us and happy 5th anniversary to Mr & Mrs Ankkerman 😊
