Cheese, yum!

Growing up in Oregon in the US, we used to go to the beach to watch cheese being made at a local creamery. Sadly that creamery is all automated now and you can no longer watch... read more

We phoned a few days before visiting to make sure that cheese making would be taking place on the day of our visit. When we arrived we parked in the nearby car park and entered the factory, paying £9 for two adults and three children. However at that point we were not allowed to enter the cheese demo part of...

Growing up in Oregon in the US, we used to go to the beach to watch cheese being made at a local creamery. Sadly that creamery is all automated now and you can no longer watch cheese being made. What a delight it was to find that you can still watch cheese being made the old fashioned way at the... More

This is always a must when we go to the Dales, huge range of cheeses to sample as well as a great educational visit to the museum where you can see how cheese is made.

Visited the creamery today, it costs just £2.50 per adult to view the gallery and museum area, and a further £1 if you want to watch a cheese making exhibition, which is worth it, very interesting. It is quite a small site and doesn't take long too go round, however the gift shop is actually well stocked with some good... More

This creamery has a very good room in which you can sample (and buy) locally produced cheeses as well as many other things to eat and drink and the home as gifts from this beautiful part of the world. Well worth a visit.

Cheese making is not always happening but they still charge you £2.50 to NOT see it!! they do not tell you before you pay that there is no demonstration in the factory. If you are going into the shop or cafe to spend money it would be nice if there was no charge for watching demo.

This is a fairly basic visitor attraction which is reflected in the price. There is a nice large car pack with more through the back - there is a three hour limit which should be plenty of time. Once you have your ticket make sure you book a place for the demonstration as you could end up waiting quite a... More

Visited on our way home - shop very busy - bit of a wait at tills. Good selection of cheeses - we didn't view how cheese was made as not enough time - plenty of parking.
