Holiday Day 1 – Trip to Hawes Creamery and the Yorkshire Dales

Today was the first proper day of our holiday to Cameron’s Aunt and Uncle’s caravan in Skipton. We decided that we’d take a drive out into the dales and visit the Wensleydale Creamery in Hawes. We were a bit disappointed that they weren’t actually making cheese that day so we couldn’t see the live demonstration, but we went round the rest of the museum and found out how they make it. We then took a trip around the tasting room and tried many different varieties of Wensleydale, including Kit Calvert (made with proper animal rennet instead of artificial), Smoky, Hot and Spicy, Sheep’s milk and just plain old Wensleydale. We bought a few samples, and headed on our way for a drive round the dales, heading back to Skipton via Kirkby Lonsdale and Settle. It’s been a wonderful day weather-wise and the scenery was just plain awesome! Excuse the quality of some of the pictures, they may have been taken out of the car window!
