Very good value visit as it is only £4 for an adult. You can then go and have a taste of every type of Wensleydale cheese that they make in the chilled tasting room (only one variety is unsuitable for vegetarians). They have a small museum explaining the history of the Wensleydale dairy as well as the viewing gallery to... More

Cheese tasting good that's it!! The museum was very disappointing felt the 6.50£ spent on the museum which took all of 5 mins to look around, I would have preferred to spend it on the cheese in the shop. The cheese tasting and shop were much better . Definitely think the museum should be free.

We weren't sure whether to include this as a trip on our holiday after reading the reviews, but decided to give it a try. As it only costs £2.50 for adults and £1.50 for children (under 5s free), and we had picked up a leaflet in the Tourist Information office that gave us 2 for 1 entry, we weren't expecting... More

Learn how cheese is manufactured and, some days, see it happening - it wasn't the day we visited. A reduced entrance fee applied as a result. Nevertheless very good - I learnt a lot. The rescue operation by a management buy-out following Dairy Crest's closure has been very successful and commendable. If you must see cheese being made, check the... More

We visited the creamery when on a weekend trip to the dales. It was cheap to get in the museum (£2.50 per adult) however, the museum was small and was majorly just information to read that I could probably find from google. There was an area to see cheese being made but it was simply just a window into the... More

This was an interesting and informative experience. Completed with cheese tasting. The creamery offer you the opportunity to purchase their cheeses and for those who are on a day out you and worried about keeping their cheese cool, there are cool bags which can be purchased.

When we visited, there was no cheese making. It would have been helpful if this could have been shown on the website. That was what we wanted to see. We were horrified to notice that there were no cocktail sticks to sample the cheese, but everyone's fingers were in contact with the cheese samples!! Surely this is bad practice!! Wasn't... More
