An Update From The Team at Wensleydale Creamery Visitor Centre!

Dear Cheese Lovers,

Our award-winning Gift Shop reopened on the 15th of June, fully stocked with brand new displays, offering our artisan range of cheeses, accompaniments, local produce, crafts and gifts. We can’t wait to see you soon!

We are currently working on the reopening of our Restaurant, Coffee Shop and Cheese Shop, dates to be announced. We are working extremely hard to ensure when you do visit us, you can do so in a way that is safe for you and our staff.

Here are some of the measures we are taking to ensure that you can shop in a safe way:

  • The entire shop has been deep cleaned and increased cleaning will continue to take place.
  • Hand sanitiser is available at the entrance and exits.
    • One-way system around the shop, which is indicated by roping and floor markings.
  • Only 6 customers allowed in the shop at once. Please note single entry applies.
  • We kindly ask customers to respect 2m distancing indicated by the floor markings and signage.
  • We are kindly asking customers not to handle produce and merchandise unless making a purchase.
  • We have reduced the number of our colleagues working in the shop and will be limiting the number of customers in the shop at any one time.
  • Please be prepared to queue outside at 2m distancing to enable us to manage safe numbers inside the shop.
  • We have introduced screens at the till points and created a system to checkout with reduced contact
  • We can only accept contactless and card payments
  • Cheese & chilled produce will be available from the fridge at the entrance to the shop. We are unable to offer samples.

We thank you for your patience and understanding as we strive to operate to the highest standards and adapt to the changing environment. Everyone’s safety is of the utmost importance.

Here are some photos of our lovely little shop, awaiting your return!

Don’t forget – our Online Deli is available all year round to send cheese, hampers and gifts to your doorstep (£2.95 postage to mainland UK addresses). There will always be cheese for you!

Best wishes

The Team at Wensleydale Creamery

    Thank you so much for this info. I am delighted that the shop is reopening! Congratulations! During the lockdown l have learned how to order online. All the gifts from The Creamery for family and friends have been so much appreciated and have brought so much joy. Thank you to all the team. I shall continue to support you.

  • Nancy Berry

    Really pleased to hear you are reopening. Hopefully we will be visiting you in July & August.

  • Chris Penn

    Looking forward very much to visiting you again in July when, hopefully, shop and restaurant will be open. My wife and I have tried to help during the lockdown, having placed three deli orders, all of which were excellent. We will be buying more when we visit. In the meantime we hope you all remain safe and well.
    Best wishes

    We have many friends and family who visit us in Aysgarth and they have been over the moon with the weekend deli boxes we ordered for them (6 in total) while they were unable to come.
