We parked in the village and walked up to the Creamery - which was great as we got to see some lovely shops in Hawes. It was a Sunday morning and because we hadn't booked then the wait to watch a demo was 2.5 hours so we decided not to wait and just go in the shop instead. The main... More

This place was a great find, found it really interesting, it was only a few pounds to get in each,which is always good when you have a large family. The first section is a museum, where you can see the history of cheese and the different tools they used to make it. Then there was an interactive bit where the... More

Have wanted to visit here for a while but it is quite a distance from home. Took the opportunity whilst staying in nearby Ingleton. Car park is quite small but, there is a council car park just prior to the creamery. We missed the last tour of the museum so just had a look around the shop. Enjoyed sampling the... More

Always worth a visit if around the Hawes area (specially if its raining, as it was on the day we visited!) wonderful selection of cheeses - lots to try before you buy; and good food in the restaurant and newly opened café. The Creamery continues to delight.

Having heard so many references to Wensleydale Cheese by a well know animated character we couldn't resist paying the home of cheese a visit. The development of the tourist areas and museum are being constructed in three phases with phase one already open. The entrance price is £2.50 for an adult and you can pay an additional £1 for the...

Went with my son and husband. The price was very reasonable as it is only part finished. There is a small cheese making museum which is interesting( even my 7 year old seemed interested!) you then go into an interactive area with all sorts of cheesy facts to read and activities for children. Next is the viewing gallery where you... More

Lots of information on cheese and cheese making. Set in a beautiful part of Yorkshire dales. Very cheap admission friendly staff. Gift shop is very good and so is cheese shop. The museum is interactive and good for kids. Lovely cafe and restaurant with value for money menu. I would definitely recommend a visit

Went here as the wife nagged me to go. Looking round was a museum set up with a new area that is still being built so maybe in a few month will be more interesting. There is a viewing area where you can see into the works but could do with some commentary to assist knowing what all the equipment... More

I was in need of caffeine - so we stopped at the creamery - not really very hopefully. the coffee in the coffee shop was excellent - it is easy for places like this to serve biter espresso - this was not at all bitter- just excellent. my cheese scone was good - so it ought to be in a... More

Due to time constraints we skipped the creamery part of the site and headed to the restaurant for lunch. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was tasty and fresh. Tables were well spaced out which is always good when you have young children and don't want neighbouring tables to be deafened by a 2 year old. In... More
