We loved our trip to the cheese factory. There’s ample parking but we had to park down the road in the pay and display. We then walked over the field to the factory which only took a couple of minutes. We paid nearly £13 to...More

Didn’t have high expectations but for 12 quid for a family with a cheese making demonstration, happy and enthusiastic presenter, cheese tasting, viewing gallery, museum - it was great for an hour and a half stop and an ice cream.

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
