On recommendation we visited the Creamery, whilst we did not have time to see the demonstration of the cheese-making, we spent some time in the cheese tasting room. This was very well organised and we were able to try the majority of their cheeses they make. They were very tasty and we were tempted enough to purchase some. We also... More

This was one of our navigational pit stops whilst attending a driving course. We stopped and sampled exquisite cheeses especially their Wensleydale cheeses and bought quite a few. Be sure to try their Wensleydale ginger cheesecake!

The exhibition was informative, the viewing area interesting and the shop well stocked - not just with cheese. The free samples made for an interesting exercise in taste comparisons. This reviewer's favourite bit (apart from taking selfies with Wallace and Gromit) was an excellent lunch in Calvert's Restaurant. You can have three courses all containing cheese, but I resisted that... More

We were recommended to visit the creamery & were not disappointed. We watched a demonstration of how cheese is made. This was very well presented & informative. We also visited the museum & watched cheese being made in the main production area. We visited the deli where there were 26 varieties free to taste. Some we'd not seen on sale... More

Good place to stop off and taste and buy cheese. Forget it if you are not a cheese lover. too easy to get cheese poisoning as tasting is plentiful especially when you choose cheese for dinner too! Worth a visit.

This is the major tourist attraction in Hawes, the centre of Wensleydale in North Yorkshire. There is a very interesting exhibition and film before you go through to a viewing gallery where you can observe different stages in the making of the unique Wensleydale cheese. Afterwards go to the visitor centre where there is a huge variety of cheeses, all... More

Well if you're in Hawes, you have to go here. They must be eternally grateful for the Wallace and Grommet animations that publicised Wensleydale cheeses. What's not to like? After the visitor experience and the shop you get to go in a room where two bods are continually carving up their cheeses for sampling. Of course you know about Wensleydale... More

I wasn't planning to visit the home of one of my favourite cheeses, Wensleydale, but I was driving from Harrogate to join the M6 and it was one of the optional routes open to me. The drive was wonderful - up and down through gorgeous dales with most of our journey trough the Yorkshire Dales National Park. You need time... More

Miserable wet & cold day so we spent a couple of hours visiting the Creamery. It was lovely to get under cover and enjoy the experience.We walked through the museum, lots of things there that we remembered from our childhood and then through to the informative area about the making of cheese, nobody there to give demonstration but there was...
