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

The factory wasn't open for a demonstration on the day we visited, but we did do the cheese tasting. So very clean and a lot for everyone to enjoy. I think you would be very hard to please if you didn't find one cheese there to tickle the tastebuds. So we bought a few portions that we liked. We also... More

After walking round Wensleydale and returning to Hawes I thought I'd pop into the Wensleydale Creamery shop for some cheese. Due to tiredness we didnt do the tour of the factory but it looked genuine and interesting. The cheese shop was fantastic, with the opportunity to taste many different cheeses made from Wensleydale. We took away some ewes Wensleydale and... More

Had tasty cheeses as we went round the tasting area. We went to see the cheeses being made, this was very interesting seeing it from start to finish. Well worth a visit.

Building a new creamery at present, so viewing area is a bit limited. The tasting room is brilliant, and we came away with more varieties of cheese than we should have!

I stumbled upon the Wensleydale Creamery by accident as my sat nav seems to find me some lovely places to get lost at. As I had a bit of spare time I thought I'd stop for a visit remembering that Wallace and Gromit like Wensleydale cheese and knew my daughter would be pleased if I stopped. The shop, although crowded... More

There was cheesemaking going on when we visited - if there hadn't been we would have felt a bit short changed just to see the Museum (fairly small) and visited the shop. However we enjoyed tasting the cheeses and obligingly bought 4. Travelling onwards we saw several farms that send their milk to the creamery which we might otherwise not... More

Visited mid-week with my best mate. Impressed by the new to us car parking area with 3 hours free parking. Good display in the gift shop area with presents to suit every budget. Ate in the restaurant and had a very pleasant meal with wine. My veggie chilli jacket potato came with multi-coloured salad and was great. Friend had the... More
