How to Visit Us
OUR VISITOR CENTRE/DAIRY IS CLOSED UNTIL TUESDAY 10th JANUARY FOR ESSENTIAL MAINTENANCE, APOLOGIES FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE CAUSED.
We are the only cheesemakers left in Cheddar. The whole process takes around 7 hours from start to finish.
You can watch us during the various stages as we transform our rich, local milk into award winning authentic Cheddar Cheese every day of the week throughout the year.
Our viewing gallery allows you to watch our cheesemakers practice their skills, a DVD is also playing throughout the day to enable you to view the process from start to finish in about 20 minutes.
From Easter until the end of August staff are on hand in the Visitor Centre to help and to answer questions.
At other times of the year our staff in the shop will be happy to help you.
After seeing cheese being made you can treat yourself to a free taste at our taster bar and then visit our shop where our Cheddars plus local pickles, biscuits, hand crafted cheese dishes, cheese knives etc. are on sale.
Admission to the cheese making area is £2.00 for adults. A maximum of two children per paying adult under 16 are free.
Coach parties are welcome throughout the year and there is a group booking discount for parties of 20 or more. We close the Visitor Centre to other visitors during your visit if there are more than 30 in the group to give you our undivided attention and therefore we do charge for groups of children under 16.
Our Visitor Centre/Dairy is open 7 days a week from 10:00 and the cheese making is normally completed by around 3:00 p.m. to 3:15 p.m.
Our shop is open 7 days a week from 10:00 a.m.
Closing times do vary according to the season.
During November and December we are still open but there is limited access to our Visitor Centre area so please do contact us to discuss your requirements in advance.
