This is one of our regular stops when in the area. Mainly for coffee + scones, but also for buying some cheese samples. No need for praising the cheese here, as most people know it anyway. We also did the factory tour a while ago and it was quite interesting. I like the fact that you can taste before you... More

I have read about the hygiene and the lack cheese making. I think that hygiene doesn't include cocktail sticks and to be honest this world would be better off if we stopped worrying about if things are perfectly clean. They offer in excess of 20 cheeses, brilliant. I do agree that when they are not making cheese it can be... More

A fabulous day out in the Yorkshire Dales national park really was capped off by our visit to the cheese creamery in Hawes after a morning watching numerous red squirrels nearby in the pine forests. The whole process is very interesting and there were more free tasters in the shop afterwards than squirrels in the pine forest! we ended up... More

Entered the Cheese Shop and witnessed some of the worst hygiene standards I've seen in the UK. Samples of cheese are cubed and laid out on communal plates for Joe Public to sample. Then the public just rake about the plates picking up samples with their bare fingers, lots of fingers (some washed, some maybe not, some with unsightly skin... More

We stopped in Wensleydale to tour the creamery and to have lunch. Tour was very interesting. We then got to sample the cheeses. We adore English cheese so it was a real treat. A little wine would have hit the spot. I spent some time in the great gift shop. And then we had lunch. The portions were generous. Service... More

I bet its big name dairy co. owners of the 1980s wished they had not decided to try to close the creamery - leading to its rescue and take-over by locals. It is wonderful to see it doing well - with an extension being built as I write and to have its Visitor Centre, Shop and Restaurant all so busy... More

Thought we would take the grandchildren to see cheese making so made the 50 mile trip only to find they don't make cheese every day! We were offered a tour of the Museum so handed over £5.00 and saw a very mediocre display. The children's corner had a very small TV screen showing snippets of Wallace & Grommit on a... More
