Called in today on our way home from a weekend break. Sampled plenty of cheese and bought some to have cheese and biscuits later. We did have a drink in the cafe which was just average nothing very special and very expensive for what you got.

Excellent cheese tasting room with masses of samples to try and buy, with a good range of other goodies. Nice cafe and very clean toilets. Were unable to see cheese being made on the day we visited but that did... More

Our second visit, first was six years ago. What a bargain, we had a voucher and because it was on a day that cheese was being made it cost us around £2. That was for three of us, as our daughter was under 5 and therefore free. The self guided tour is good, very informative and interesting, we were all... More

Enjoyable afternoon visit mainly to escape the heavy rain! Really glad we did. Plenty to do, tour round the creamery, good shop with wide selection of cheeses and gifts. Brilliant café/restaurant which does an amazing afternoon tea. Pot of tea, plate of sandwiches, two scones with jam and cream and large slice of fruit cake and large wedge of cheese.... More

We both had something to eat in the restaurant, food was great. Then we went into the cheese try before you buy canteen and that was great! You just go round the table trying all the different cheeses, great idea if you ask me. Only thing is which was a little bit minging.... Hairs on one of the tasting trays... More

This is the home of Wensleydale Cheese and is a very small site but the story of the cheese is interesting and the shop amazing.

We really enjoyed our visit to the creamery . Unfortunately we picked a day that they were not making cheese. Even so the visit was very interesting. And at the end of the visit there is a chance to taste all of the cheeses, then buy your favourites.

Something Ideal for a wet day and also hopefully when they a producing. We paid the nominal charge to view the museum and production area but no production today which was a shame. Nice Light Bite in the very busy Bistro (think we arrived just after a coach) Theres a good shop and a must visit excellent selection of samples... More
