Have just come back from visiting Wensleydale Creamery, where they make the famous cheese !! A very interesting tour is available, that shows you how the cheese is made and where you can watch it being made. Also a good museum of things associated to the cheese industry. There is a very good shop selling lots of gifts and a... More

A quick visit, but it came across as a gift shop plus. They must have had so much more to see, but all that was on show was gift shop and a tasting area for cheese. (Nice mind!) There may have been other areas, but little signage to get you there.

Not to be missed when in Hawes. We go especially to stock up on cheese on a regular basis. Sample the various cheeses then buy just the ones you like. Don't forget to take a cool bag if you visit in the summertime. Lovely cafe for a light snacks and restaurant for a full meal. Lovely gift shop too with... More

It's a nice place to visit if you are in the area. There is a bistro, coffee shop and restaurant as well as the museum and tour. Most of the staff a friendly. You can taste the cheese before you buy. It's worth checking opening times before you go.

We went on a Sunday so there was no cheese making in production which was disappointing but you get entry for a discounted rate so fair enough. Interesting museum which the kids found fun & a really lovely gift shop. We got some lovely keepsakes & quirky knick knacks & it wasn't as over priced as other gift shops we've... More

We have been several times before and on this occasion when we went the café was closed and we used the restaurant for the first time . The menu was good, the service good, the place is well set out and the prices were reasonable. Only complaint was that you could not buy a toasted teacake or a pre-made sandwich... More

Glad we made a quick trip to the museum. Good to see the cheese being made and some very nice cheese to buy in the shop. We were in a bit of a rush so didn't manage to hear any of the talks. Good value.

Fantastic place where you can follow the journey of Wensleydale cheese, from seeing its history in the museum, seeing how it's made in the factory, tasting all the different flavours and buying in the cheese shop, where all sorts of other local delights are also sold, to eating dishes made from it in the cafe and restaurant....also a gift shop...
