It’s (nearly) the most wonderful time of the year…and we’re gearing up for Christmas 2018.
We have lovingly created 5 brand new Hampers which are packed full of our award-winning cheese, fantastic local produce such as chutneys, flatbreads, oils and gifts exclusive to Wensleydale Creamery.
As you know, we’re proud to be from Yorkshire and having our Creamery in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. The Hampers in our new range are named after some of our favourite beauty spots in the area!
Introducing…the Wether Fell, Stags Fell, Shunner Fell, Cotterdale & Mill Foss!
For reference, A fell (from Old Norse fell, fjall, “mountain”) is a high and barren landscape feature, such as a mountain range or moor-covered hills.
Wether Fell overlooks Bainbridge and Raydale in the Yorkshire Dales. The route of a Roman road called Cam High Road leads over the fell, connecting Bainbridge with Ribblehead and Ingleton. Also known as Drumaldrace (the summit), this mountain stands at 592m, overlooking our beautiful Hawes and Wensleydale Creamery.
The Yorkshire Dales have long been associated with mining and quarrying. The sandstone quarries at Staggs Fell are the most extensive areas of stoneworking in the Dales. Staggs Fell stands at 579.3m and delivered stunning views of Hawes! It also provides an amazing view from our Visitor Centre Coffee Shop!
Our most popular hamper, Shunner Fell is named after ‘Great Shunner Fell’, as it’s often referred to, which is the third highest mountain in the Yorkshire Dales, North Yorkshire, England, and the highest point in Wensleydale; at 716 metres above sea level. In clear weather, the summit affords views of Wensleydale to the south, Ribblesdale to the south west and Swaledale to the north, as well as views into Cumbria and County Durham beyond the A66. Shunner Fell can be admired from our Visitor Centre, sit back and enjoy a cup of tea and a scone whilst soaking up the panoramic views from our Coffee Shop!
Our Cotterdale hamper is named after a small side dale and hamlet on the north side of Wensleydale in North Yorkshire, England. The village of Cotterdale is situated in a beautiful Valley, and has only 12 houses, which are the remnants of a larger 19th-century thriving coal mining community.
Mill Foss is the waterfall in the town of Hawes – often pictured on many photos of the town. The Old Dairy built in 1897, which can still be seen today sits alongside it.
The gift of food is the best gift of all at Christmas time, and are perfect for those who have ‘everything’!
We can deliver straight to your door from www.wensleydale.co.uk, or, you visit us at Wensleydale Creamery and build your own hamper! One of our team will beautifully wrap it for you…and finish it off with a Christmas bow of course!
