Excellent tour around the cheese making dairy - guide was clear and interesting. Happy to let the children come back to watch the different stages of the making. Cafe served great food - definitely recommend the Monkland and Little Hereford cheese.

We checked in advance that they were running tours and would advise calling them before you go. Tours tend to run on Monday and Wednesday mornings (and Fridays in summer). Cost is £3.50. This is a very small, family run business in a converted barn,...More

Great to visit and see cheese made in a small family run dairy. Able to taste the cheese at various points of production. Had a great cheese and biscuit snack afterwards.

An enjoyable and interesting experience. If you want to do the tour, come on a Monday or Wednesday as these are the only cheese making days (and best before midday). After the tour, we stayed on for a ploughman's lunch. Very tasty.

Amazing to see the cheese making process, smell the new batches and learn the tech info, from the friendly staff. Easy to find and park and with a lovely shop and cafe. Well worth the trip....
