Lovely local cheeses! Great amount of samples to try and buy! A very nice gift shop and lots of local gifts to buy as well as local books on the Yorkshire Dales.

Travelled up to Hawes whilst on holiday for the Cheese. We weren't disappointed. You are able to taste all of the cheese on offer and buy if you like it. Well laid out cheese shop, with complimentary foods for sale. Well stocked gift shop and also a restaurant, where we stopped for a hot drink. You can pay extra for... More

Friends recommended a visit to the Creamery. We were glad they did. For only £2.50 you can spend all day there if you want. We visited the small museum, watch the short video then spent quite a while watching the cheese making. Fascinating. Thoroughly enjoyed the tasting. Think you'd be hard pressed not to find one you like - unless... More

In may, the family and I decided to visit the Wensleydale creamery and how delighted we were that we did. We were able to test a variety of cheese and place these in our baskets to purchase. There was also a shop to buy souvenirs and lovely gifts for the family. We decided to eat here, all of us having... More

Unfortunately the cheese making was off for the day I called with visiting friends from Australia. But the welcome was excellent and friendly. Disappointed that we could not see the cheese making we set off for the restaurant and visitor centre. We had a lovely lunch in the cafe area. The food was freshly prepared and served swiftly. Our visitors... More

After a pleasant walk through Hawes to the Wensleydale Creamery we were pleased to see how well it has been developed since the last time we visited ten years ago. We were lucky to catch the cheese making in progress on this visit which drove us straight into the cheese sales area to purchase cheese to take home for the... More

This visit complimented our coach tour of the Dales very nicely. On arrival we were greeted and taken into a small room where we were treated to a talk and demonstration of how cheese is made. The person giving the talk really knew his stuff and had good presentation skills keeping it to the right level for the audience before... More

This review is based on our experience at the factory 'tour', the restaurant and the shop. Firstly, the factory was really interesting. You pay a really small amount to go in. You can ask, before you pay, if cheese is in the process of being made at that time. They will tell you! It was being made on the day... More

Getting to Hawes is part of the pleasure - we drove up through Wharfedale and the beautiful villages of Starbotton, Buckden, Hubberholme and Gayle. Breathtakingly beautiful countryside but narrow, winding roads. The creamery itself has a fantastic cheese tasting room where you can try before you buy and buy you will! We didn't go on the tour of the cheese-making... More
