I am slightly biased as I am a great lover of their cheese. This visit was no exception. As always a great selection, although there wasn’t any vintage Wensleydale at the time of my visit.

The tour of the creamery is not worth the price of admission or the time spent. The attraction consists of a large glass viewing window over looking large tubs for processing the cheese. The restaurant selection is limited and not very original.More

Yes, there is an outdoor seating area for the cafe as well as around site which is dog friendly. However, I am afraid that inside the building are for service dogs only. I hope this helps. Thank you!
