We enjoyed seeing the cheddar being made and sampling lots of cheese and crackers. The tour can be fairly short if you don't watch the video or read the information. £2 for adults and free for children. Good to see how the cheese is made.

Friendly staff and nice to try some different Cheddar cheese. We did buy some to take home to family but you do pay more because of where you are. Would recommend though.
