Great little museum with history of the creamery, wonderful tasting room, nice to see cheese being made, good gift shop. Had tea and scones -- the savory, cheesy one with a generous serving of tasty butter.

Spent a pleasant couple of hours here sampling the cheeses (and buying lots!). The 'museum' is low key but fun and informative. Had lunch in the centre - quite expensive for 3 of us - but food was nice.

Went round the museum and saw how they make the cheese, unfortunately there was no cheese making the day we went but we watched a small film and enjoyed the day. Tasted a lot of different cheeses which we very nice and bought some to take home.

We stopped here on the way home to try some of the fantastic ice-cream we had heard about. We were not disappointed and the flavours we chose were excellent.

We called to visit the shop and restaurant rather than the museum as we had visited a few years ago. The cheese shop complete with samples is fascinating (for cheese lovers) but includes wines and spirits. The restaurant serves very good food at reasonable prices and for lighter snacks there is also a café.

Thank Trippersrus
