“Beautiful setting to enjoy the best ice creams”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

This is a great destination to enjoy Barford's delicious ice creams - we had Rum & Raisin, Strawberry, Honeycomb, Chocolate and Apple Strudel, all were fantastic with really good distinctive flavours. The ice cream here is nothing like the dull mass produced flavours that you get with shop bought ice cream - and yet it was still reasonably priced.
Its a great setting for children to be able to run around and lots of hidden garden areas to explore. Our family favourite was the Apple Strudel this time but we'll probably change our minds next time!

“Best ice cream ever”
Reviewed 25 August 2013 via mobile

My husband and I live locally to Barford Farm and have been having the ice cream since the ice cream garden opened. It is simply the best. Try the Christmas pudding ice cream a lighter alternative to the real thing. Always service with a smile. A hidden gem.

“Ice Cream Heaven”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

Ice cream! That's it? I thought.... You can not afford to miss this little Dorset gem. I thought we were walking through someone's gardens and we were. Tucked at the back is the shed in which this delicious ice cream is served and off you toddle to find a seat in the many secluded spots in the garden to people watch. Wonderful, thank you Barford Farm for providing some escapism.
