We are an artisan chocolate maker and our purpose built factory is open to visitors - a popular tourist attraction in Leyburn. Watch our chocolatiers at work and learn all about chocolate from its history, to where it is grown and how it is made. We have example cocoa pods, beans and nibs to view as well as a film to watch and a chocolate quiz. We run workshops most weekends and holidays suitable for children and adults - try your hand at making a chocolate pizza or lolly. We also offer bookable events such as truffle and chocolate classes as well as parties. We have an on site cafe serving premium coffee, homemade cakes and savoury light bites (such as panini's etc). The cafe also has free WiFi. Our factory shop is crammed with our chocolate creations for you to browse or indulge. Together with a loose chocolate counter and a selection of giftware and hampers you are sure to find a lovely gift or special treat. Free parking, accessible facilities, toilets and nappy change.

Took our two children aged 8 and 12. They enjoyed the hour making an egg and pizza. The staff were friendly and the chocolate tasty. Worth a visit on a rainy day, the coffee shop is nice for the adults.

The tour is great but the choice of chocolates is amazing. If you want a bag of the same thing (all 3 types of chocolate available) or individual chocolates or "Objects" such as rabbits etc, you are spoilt for choice. Just stocked up for Easter

You can have a tour of the factory, looking at the chocolate being made whilst reading about the process and watching a short video. The shop sells their products which are very nice quality. Great for gifts, today we bought chocolate sheep for Easter presents.
