Not sure what to expect but had a great time. Cheese making demo was the high point, very informative and the guide was excellent. As the new creamery wasn't open yet we couldn't do the full tour but the quality, knowledge and enthusiasm of the guide man up for it. The cheese samples in the shop were great after leaning...

Called in for tea and cream scones for 4 on Thursday at 2.45pm during May half term, only to find they had run out. Service was slow and lacked the level of customer service I'd expect in "welcoming Yorkshire". Had a Cappucino "regular" size which only filled half the cup by the time the froth dispersed, at £2.45 I found... More

Always call in when in the area. Good food and service. Great shop and free taste of cheese when you go round the shop. Well worth a visit and time.

This is an interesting place to learn about how the famous Wensleydale cheese is made and actually see the staff doing this. It is always busy. A good range of cheese samples to try and buy alongside gifts and handicrafts in the shop. An onsite restaurant is also good for a snack or full meal. Worth a visit.

The Creamery (cheese factory) is a very popular place so choose your time to visit. We skipped the factory tour (we'd been round on a previous visit) and went into the shop that unlike some factory shops seemed to have a really good selection of cheese and also Yorkshire related items to buy. We also went into the cheese tasting... More
