Great to visit and see cheese made in a small family run dairy. Able to taste the cheese at various points of production. Had a great cheese and biscuit snack afterwards.

An enjoyable and interesting experience. If you want to do the tour, come on a Monday or Wednesday as these are the only cheese making days (and best before midday). After the tour, we stayed on for a ploughman's lunch. Very tasty.

Amazing to see the cheese making process, smell the new batches and learn the tech info, from the friendly staff. Easy to find and park and with a lovely shop and cafe. Well worth the trip....

We visited the dairy to buy some locally made cheese, thinking we wouldn't do the tour as we'd been to one in the Lake District and not found it very interesting. We're so glad we decided to pay the small charge to do this one....More

I found the cheese tour interesting and enjoyed trying all the cheeses afterwards. We had lunch at the cafe where I had a blue cheese and chutney roll which was beautiful. Lovely surroundings too. Would recommend 😊
