It's a lovely little creamery that of course makes some of the best cheese In the world (biased Yorkshire man speaking) the tour is nothing special but thankfully it is not at all pricey. The shop is well stocked and again well priced. We enjoyed the cheese room and getting the chance to sample a large selection of their cheeses.... More

The Wensleydale Creamery has managed to retain much of the quaint charm of a local attraction even though it's extremely popular getting very busy with coach tours. There is plenty to see and the demonstration on cheese making is well worth a visit. It looks quite simple and I'm sure many people leave wondering if they should have a go... More

I love Wensleydale cheese and love visiting this place. I've eaten in both the cafe and the restaurant and the food is always lovely. Would highly recommend the creamery tour (although the new one isn't open until Aug '15) or take part in the demonstration, then finish up in the cold room trying all the different cheeses they make.

This large working creamery has an interesting museum and demos of cheese making. However the best bit is the cafe restaurant and shop. Many types of Wensleydale to taste and buy and. Dry good value and outstanding quality. Delightful cafe with really good value food that was generous in size and delicious. Very friendly and helpful staff

On a flying visit we went into the cheese shop. It is not like any other I've been to - it is climate controlled and visitors are asked to use hand cleansing gel before entering. In front of each type of cheese on offer (and there are many) there is a dish of samples to try. Mild Wensleydale, Special Reserve... More

First visited Wensleydale Creamery in December 2014 and absolutely loved it so my second visit 7 months later was way overdue! I'd booked ahead to be on the cheese making demo and then a table in Calvert's restaurant, glad to have done both. The demo was very informative and imagine this will be even better when the new viewing gallery... More

Visited midday Wednesday 17th June and fortunate to get to see cheese making demo in presence of well behaved school party. Very enthusiastic and engaging lady running the show. Great range of products which can be sampled and purchased in the main building. Restaurant seemed popular but not visited by us. Worth the £2.50 charge. Will henceforth look for the... More

A very average experience. The explanation of the process was all written on cards and supported by pictures. The cheese tasting was good as there was at least over 30 cheeses to taste and the coffee shop was bright and welcoming. A tourist honey trap...
