Overview
More
Matlock Meadows is a modern purpose built ice cream parlour and coffee shop set within a working dairy farm. The farm has diversified by making italian style hand made ice cream here on the farm using the fresh milk from our dairy herd. The coffee shop serves 15 flavours of ice cream, also sorbet's, ice cream sundaes, a range of hot and cold drinks and snacks, giftware and local produce. We have a small outdoor play area and in the adjacent field and barn we have a micro pig, sheep, chickens, cows and calves. We are a real working dairy farm rather than a major visitor attraction. We do not charge any entrance fees and therefore rely on the income generated from the shop sales to maintain our facilities which include outside play area, free car parking, toilets, and baby changing. The farm has disabled access and facilites and can accommodate educational group/school visits also childrens birthday parties.

Visited recently with our 2 year old granddaughter, who had a lovely time feeding the animals, playing in the small play area and on the tractors. But the highlight for her was the ice cream. I have to admit we did do the typical grandparent...More

Always a winner. So many different flavours to choose from. The park area is nice too. Only thing I don't like is the farmy smells!
