Visited here with my husband and small child there was plenty to do for her! I was impressed with the interactive parts especially and she thoroughly enjoyed playing them. I adore cheese so obviously loved it; my favourite part was sampling all the cheeses at the end! Wish I could have bought them all! Only slight thing that put me... More

We visited here when we had free time in Hawes as part of a coach trip and were pleasantly surprised! We paid to look round the museum and watched part of the process of it being made then we went into the tasting area..... wow! By chance we had some celery and carrot sticks in our bags as part of...

What a good morning we had. Lovely drive through the Yorkshire Dales to Hawes and the Creamery. Had a two for one ticket so paid £4.95 for the two of us which included the cheese making demo ( Anna was excellent ). Museum although small is quite interesting and watching the cheese being produced was fascinating. Cafe was good value.... More

What a fabulous day out! The cheese was delicious. The food in the cafe was great. The staff were fantastic. Couldn't have asked for a better day out with my husband, sister and brother in law. Would highly recommend a visit.

Then on to the serious stuff tasting the cheeses, all free, you can buy slabs of cheese, but better to... More

First of all the museum experience isn't the best in the world. Very basic with not a lot of information, however that may be different on days where things are going on as I went on Sunday and it was pretty dead. However the pricing is not expensive so I can't knock it too much!! What makes the whole thing... More

Easy to find after a beautiful drive through the dales, Wensleydale creamery is set in amongst some stunning scenery! We ate first, nothing like going round a cheese making plant when you're hungry so it was straight to the cafe for us! The menu, not surprisingly, is based around cheese... but then you wouldn't be here if you weren't a... More

Visited the creamery today(been a few times over the years) tried out the new interactive area for children, milked the wooden cow, drive the milk float and sat with Wallace and Gromit. Sampled all the cheese, bought souvenirs and watched cheese being made. Very reasonable admission price. Cafe busy as always but great tea and cakes
