Even though we live a 45 minute drive away from the Ice Cream Farm, we’ve been regular visitors for many years. This was even before the expansion of the farm (I wish it had stayed as it was!) We visited again today (the second visit...More

Unsure what is happening at the moment. Looking around the place I am not sure if it is due to the time of the year or it is in mid renovation or it is going down hill. It was really busy as normal but it...More

It always amazes me that such a great place is free to enter. Granted, it’s not all free but those areas are optional. Highly recommend for anyone with young children.

A wonderful time spent at the ice cream farm, despite the bad weather. The indoor activity areas are excellent and our 6yr old had plenty to entertain her. The ice cream is of excellent quality and surprisingly modestly priced! Highly recommend.

Before the upgrade a few years ago, we regularly called for a fresh baguette or something similar en route. Food was good and the cafe area relatively peaceful with both families and cyclists enjoying the place. Now it is a purely commercial pack-em-in venue serving...More

This is the first time we have visited the Ice Cream farm in the winter and were dissapointed to find lots of the outside activities closed. The farm was packed and the weather was dry so can’t really understand why they were closed. In addition...More

Yes they’re good for allergies. We’ve had gluten free and lactose free ice creams there.

I bought a 100 activity pass for £100 and gives you 10% off food and shop purchases. The passes have no expiry date so could last you for years and makes it cheap in the long run.

With great difficulty. In the middle of nowhere. You would need to get a taxi. So will cost a packet.
