Spent several hours visiting the cheese factory last week. Very reasonable entry charge. Interesting visit which included a demonstration of the cheese making process by a knowledgeable employee.

We had visited the creamery a few years ago with my inlaws, and visited it again last month when my brother in law came for a visit. The cheese factory wasn't in production when we visited (on a Saturday) so the entrance fee to the...More

I have visited many times before and today I was totally shocked by the fact that they have double charged me for products I bought whilst their card systems were down. This is totally unacceptable!!!

We popped to the creamery whilst camping nearby. This is a great way to spend a few hours watching and learning how Wensleydale cheese is made. There was a practical demonstration and a chance to view the cheese been made in the huge vats. Once...More

I have 2 dogs and we left them in the car. It's only a small place so you wouldn't be in long. We just kept checking them. There is a cafe with seating outside where dogs are allowed. Hope this helps. Well worth a visit... More
