Visited on our way back from Northallerton, there was no cheese making on the day we visited which was a shame. The cheese was very nice and a fair price too, the gift shop was extreemely dear so we bought cheese instead of anything from the shop. Not much for children to see or do which was a shame as...

Stopped off here for a bite to eat in Hawes. Definitely a place to go for cheese lovers. The cheese on toast looks popular and the scones look pretty tempting!

The story of Wensleydale Creamery is a wonderful example of a business rooted in its community, from the early days under the inspirational guidance of Kit Calvert, to the 90s management buyout that has seen the business flourish. Limited live view of the cheese-making process, but the opportunity to taste an extraordinary range of Wensleydale cheeses in the shop is... More

The Creamery makes exceptionally good cheeses. The tasting facility in the shop is wonderful and the restaurant and cafe serve wonderful meals.Booking essential for the Sunday carvery which is outstanding.Unfortunately the cheese making process is less than rivetting.

We went here not knowing what to expect and all I can say is wow! Cafe/restaurant/museum/shop/lots of cheese. The cheese section and the restaurant alone are worthy of a visit alone. We had excellent food at only £12 for 2 courses of very good quality food which we couldn't of asked for any better. The cheese is amazing too. It... More

If you like cheese, you have to visit the Wensleydale Creamery and cheese factory. The village of Hawes is a nice place to wander around and explore and Wensleydale Creamery is a must do. I have always liked Wensleydale cheese but when I saw the varieties available I was thrilled. I lost count of how many cheese are available to... More

My family and I were staying in the area (Ingleton) and found the Wensleydale creamery on trip adviser. It's well worth the stunning drive and what great value for money. Might have put a few pounds on though. We will be going back.

Just superb. You cannot go to Hawes without going to see this fantastic place. A cheese lovers delight. And it is a bargain of an attraction. Restaurant good too, rather busy but a nice place to eat. All you wanted was the Wallace and Grommit theme tune playing in the background and it would have been complete. A kids paradise!... More

This place is great especially if you like cheese. You can pay £2.50 for the museum tour which we have done in the past and though was good rather than brilliant, personally I head straight for the cheese tasting room, clean my hands with the antibacterial gel and then try a piece of each of the cheeses made on the...

The road signing is a bit iffy and the entrance to the car park could be signed better. Enjoyed our visit. Plenty to see. The restaurant was very good but the jewel in the crown was the cheese tasting and subsequent buying. Left with a bag full of cheese!
