I have visited the creamery a few times previously so my friend and I battled the elements on Monday (heavy rain ,road closures due to floods) as we wanted to purchase some of the beautiful cheese available. On arrival we made our way towards the café only to be told it was closed due to excess stock being kept there... More

Visited the cheese making centre for Wensleydale cheeses recently. Fantastic selection of local produce for sale, and an excellent cafe. The best part is the cheese tasting though. This is completely free and you can wander through and help yourself to the samples without any pressure to buy. You probably will buy though, as there are a few unusual ones... More

A variety of local cheeses can be sampled at the Creamery Shop, the most expensive being the Kit Calvert. All the cheeses sold there, are good, but it is worth paying the extra for the latter. The shop is kept spotless, but perhaps lacks that feel of Yorkshire grit, that makes the region and its inhabitants such a remarkable combination.... More

Well worth a visit if you are in Wensleydale. Just on the outskirts of Hawes with ample free parking (plus a footpath down into the village). Plenty to see and do from a factory visit, well-stocked gift shop and a super restaurant with 'home' cooked meals and snacks. What's not to like?!

Visited this attraction when in Yorkshire recently. We were surprised to see so many cheeses on offer to try, lots of different flavours to sample. Prompted us to buy some different cheese as gifts for friends The gift shop has some lovely good available at fairly reasonable prices. We visited mid-week and the café/restaurant was very busy so that must... More

Loved the different choices of cheese available to taste before you buy. The shop is full of novelty gift ideas and souvenirs to buy and the prices were good too.

Great choice of foods most including one of their own cheeses. The price seems expensive but the portion sizes are good value for money. The restaurant is spotless and the staff friendly and helpful. They also cater for people on a Coeliac diet and vegetarian diet. You can go into the tasting room and taste as many of their cheeses... More

Good choice of quality items. Rather a long queue for checkout, mainly due to Christmas wrapping service for baskets of goods.
