We went there for the last tour of the day which was fully booked already. Therefore, we can't review the tour but we used the chance to taste and buy cheese. We also had a quiche and an apple pie in the cafe. The food was not more than average.

We have enjoyed visits to other cheese producers visitor centres and always really enjoyed them. Unfortunately Wensleydale was not up there among them at all. It was not signposted adequately for parking, groups, disabled or anything else. When we finally found it after parking in a public car park which we and many others believed was the Creamery car park,... More

We made a 120 mile round trip to visit the Creamery, which was enjoyable in itself due to the scenery. The charge of £3.50 per head was quite reasonable since it included a fascinating cheese-making demonstration as well as entry to the Museum and Creamery viewing area.

Just a quick visit to this great cheese factory this time. A fantastic array of different cheese to taste, which makes it really hard to chose which one(s!) to buy. Lots of nice quality bits and bobs to buy from the shop and a good little café.

We took two friends that we're visiting us from Essex for a trip to Hawes and mainly the Creamery. The museum was very interesting, with a very informative Demo of cheese making by a lady demonstrator. Pity there wasn't much happening in the factory, even though there are now great big viewing windows to see in. Defo go again so... More

We decided to visit the creamery as there was a leaflet for it in our holiday home. After a 45 mile drive to get there, we were hoping for a good day out and Wensleydale Creamery did not disappoint!! I was amazed at how cheap the entry price was and we paid a pound each extra for the cheese making... More

Have seen this place develop over the last few years, and this is the second visit this year. Having done the "tour" in the past, called in for a pit stop, and to stock up on the various cheeses they have for sale, as we were going on further. They have a outdoor eating area, and for those who have... More

We always go to the Creamery when we stay in Hawes which is at least twice a year. A visit to Hawes wouldn't be complete without stocking up on their delicious cheeses. The choice is very wide and it's possible to try before you buy and it's very easy to buy more than you can eat in a short time... More

It was lovely to be able to taste lots of different cheeses, trying ones with fruit, onions,smoked. There are also very affordable cheeses to buy from around £1.75. The gift shop is well stocked. Parking is free in certain car parks but pay & display at the ropemakers which is not open at weekends or bank holidays.

We visited here after a recommendation from a family member. Upon arrival there was lots of places to park and we found our way to a reception desk where we paid £2.50 per person to have a look round where you are also able to see through a viewing window where they make the cheeses. For an additional fee we... More
