Dozens of cheeses to sample. That's me a happy customer! Only problem was it was so cold in the tasting room that my fingers went numb... Maybe I was in there too long? ;-) I love cheese so I loved the creamery. I agree with some reviews that the 'museum' is a little underwhelming, I've visited it in the past... More

the museum is small but cheap to get in and you can see them make cheese. the guys work so hard and are really well organised, its rare to see people making something nowadays. The cheese shop was good, you can taste each cheese, we bought a few. There is a huge range, from mature to smoked and blue and... More

We visited the creamery at half term. I had no idea that there were so many different varieties of Wensleydale cheese and all of them could be sampled! The museum was very inexpensive but thoroughly interesting and it was nice to watch some of the cheese making process. We had 4 children with us aged 4 to 12 and they... More

The cafe was lovely with friendly staff and a good choice of food and drinks. Could recommend the wensleydale cheese on toast!! The shop has got... More

When contemplating what to do with the teens on a day during half term we decided to start our day out here. We were not disappointed. Not only is this place local to us but it really is rather interesting and well thought out. It was great to learn about the history of the business as well as witness the... More

Wensleydale creamery and visitor center, what a great experience, not to be missed. Don't however eat too much before you go as the cheese tasting counters are extensive and generous. The tasting is free but you pay for a tour of the creamery.

Whilst visiting the north Yorkshire dales we paid a visit to the home of wenslydale cheese. We learnt lots, had plenty of samples of different cheese and enjoyed the museum and viewing of the factory. There was a small fee payable, and the staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Worth a stop off.

They are very good at the Cheesy bits with a good selection (including chocolate cheese) and an imaginative tasting/purchasing room where you can try and buy. The various Wensleydales are the attraction. The Gift shop has variety but on the expensive side whilst the Café is goodish standard but the service particularly if you have ordered a variety of snacks... More
