I walked up here from the village and I think I was the first person in. The samples were lovely and I bought loads of cheese to bring home. Being able to try different types of cheese is great.

After reading the hygiene complaints, has the creamery done anything to improve the situation. We were planning a visit at half term October but may not bother?
