We went solely to pick up some cheeses for a DIY cheese board. Once parked, we found our way to the shop; we would have gone to the factory/museum bit but we couldn't see if it was open or any opening times, or costs for it. In the gift shop itself, there was a lady at the till but no... More

We often visit the creamery on a trip to the dales as a small family. This was our first visit that our son tasted the different cheeses, which was enjoyable. We went to the restaurant for the first time and enjoyed it too. Was a bit disappointed to be put near the entrance but I suppose they wanted us out... More

My wife had leek and potato soup, which was served immediately. Whilst I waited 25 minutes for my jkt pot with bacon, leek and Wensley dale blue. My wife said... More

Loved the cheese tasting shop and cafe. This time we tried, and bought, mince pie cheese - it was Christmas time!

Friendly, knowledgable staff are interested to tell you about the process. Plus the sample line that moved slowly around the cheese room provides much amusement as many drop out at the fruit cheese stage! Love the sheep cheese and the spiced Mexican plus the Wensleydale with onion. We bought more than we are for free so didn't feel too guilty.... More

I can see why adults might find it interesting but it's quite expensive for small children. Even the Wallace and Gromit colouring in table failed to impress. Worse still was... More

Tour of museum, watched video, viewing gallery of cheesemaking, sampled cheeses, ate lunch at Restaurant. Fascinating history. Very reasonable price for the tour (£2.50). Good service at the restaurant, great lunch. The cheese-tasting was excellent - I loved them all.

At work in the factory which was interesting and not very expensive. The visitors shop and cafe were pleasant enough with lots of choices and the cheese room was a Mecca for... More
