Cyril's Soap Shed
This wonderful business actually came about by accident - a few years ago Catherine bought two goats to live on her smallholding with the plan that they would provide milk for the family. The following year they kidded and started producing LOTS of milk. Despite Catherine not taking the kids away from mum, they were still providing over 8 pints a day! Catherine learnt how to make cheese, yoghurt, ice cream and butter, and still had lots of milk left.
She needed to find something else to make...which is where the idea of the soap started. Determined that she wanted to do it 'properly' and from scratch she decided that the traditional Cold Process method, although more time consuming, would produce the best soaps.
Their soaps are still handmade in her late grandfather Cyril's old shed (hence the name of the business!) and are now sold all over the UK, including in National Trust shops.
