Godsells Cheese

This family cheese-making business is presided over by Liz Godsell, a passionate advocate of all things cheese. Based in the Cotswold village of Leonard Stanley, her small team, consisting of family members and friends, makes multi- award-winning cheeses that are evocative of the area.

One of their most popular cheeses is the award-winning Traditional Single Gloucester. This cheese has a P.D.O. – Protected Designated Origin, meaning it can only be made in Gloucestershire with milk from the rare breed Gloucester Cattle. There are five well-loved Gloucester cows at Godsell’s farm, who produce the milk to make this ancient cheese, which is traditionally matured and cloth bound.

Their award-winning Traditional Double Gloucester is more fruity in flavour with a more fudgy-like texture than its single brother. Godsell’s own cheddar, the Leonard Stanley, won a gold at the World Cheese Awards and is traditionally matured for at least seven months, and cloth bound, creating a real depth of taste that continues minutes after being eaten.
