10 Fabulous Yorkshire Ice Cream Parlours

Summer time means more family outings – and what better place to spend a hot summer day than at one of the these fabulous Yorkshire ice cream parlours?  With the help of Yorkshire Tots Facebook Page, I’ve put together a list of 10 fantastic Yorkshire ice cream parlours to visit with your family.  Whereever you find yourself in Yorkshire, from Dewsbury to Skipsea, there’s a Yorkshire ice cream parlour waiting.

1.  Yummy Yorkshire –  Denby Dale, West Yorkshire

Yummy Yorkshire is located on a family run dairy farm which produces 50+ flavours of award-winning ice cream.  They have a family friendly coffee shop and ice cream parlour as well as many fun, family events planned throughout the summer.

Yummy Yorkshire is a great family destination with plenty of regular events on the farm as added attractions for our customers. In summer alone we have the Yummy Yorkshire garden with sandpit and toys, the Play Barn with its ride-ons and regular Bouncy Castles all for free.

It is amazing to be in the position where we can open up our farm to the public and we take great pleasure in everybody enjoying our events and facilities.

Having a young family ourselves, we know that children can be hard to please so we always like to try something new which children and adults can have fun with. We’re also geared towards little ones in the ice cream parlour and café with a separate children’s menu, high chairs and baby changing facilities,” says owner Jeremy Holmes.

2.  Brymor Ice Cream Parlour –  Masham, North Yorkshire

  •  A B Moore (Farmers) Ltd, High Jervaulx Farm, Jervaulx, Masham, North Yorkshire HG4 4PG
  • www.abomoore.co.uk

Brymor’s ice cream parlour is a family run business and the ice cream served there is made from milk produced on the farm.  There are over 35 flavours to choose from including diabetic ice cream and sorbets.  The parlour has seating for up to 150 as well as baby changing facilities.  The ice cream was described by one Yorkshire Tots reader as ‘the best on earth.’

3.  Dixon’s Milk Ices –  Huddersfield, West Yorkshire

Dixion’s has been serving up milk ices in Huddersfield since 1961 and now has a second shop on Leeds Road. Dixion’s milk ice recipe is a closely guarded secret and a favourite treat to many Yorkshire Tots readers.  They also make speciality products which include milk shakes, the Ice Mountain and the Slush Mush.


4.  Archer’s Jersey Ice Cream at The Station Ice Cream Parlour, Richmond, North Yorkshire

The Station carries Archer’s Jersey Ice Cream in cones, cups, sundaes and milk shakes to be enjoyed indoors or outside in a garden area. The Station is a hub of community activity offering food, film and art on the premises.  It is also located on the Cost-to-Coast long distance path and is a great setting off spot for some short family-friendly walks.

5.  Mr. Moos – Driffield, East Yorkshire

6.  Charlotte’s Ice Cream Parlour – Dewsbury, West Yorkshire

Charlotte’s Ice Cream Parlour has both real jersey ice cream and many fun activities for the kids.

“Charlottes Ice Cream Parlour Coffee Shop is open 7 days a week we have lots of animals to see, a crazy golf train ride and great slide, weather permitting. Our free play area is always open and we have no entry fee just great ice cream, coffee, lunches and a great welcome to young and old alike,” says Audrey of Charlotte’s.

7.  The Garden Coffee Lounge, Liversedge, West Yorkshire

The  Garden Coffee Lounge come very highly recommended by Yorkshire Tots readers.  They have a “gorgeous” garden lounge cafe and coffee shop which sells Charlotte’s Ice Cream as well as an outside area with goats, birds, hens, ducks, rabbits and even a peacock.

“There are about 6 flavours of ice cream.  My favourite is coconut and chocolate chip! You can have them in cones (with toppings!!) or in tub.  There are plenty of tables outside to eat your ice cream, a garden to run around in and animals such as goats to feed. Plus there is a shop selling eggs too so you can stock up!” says mum Jo who runs the family travel website kiddieholidays.co.uk


8. Billy-Bob’s Parlour at the Yorkshire Dales Ice Cream Farm, Skipton, North Yorkshire

Billy-Bob’s Parlour at the Yorkshire Dales Ice Cream Farm serves up fantastic ice cream and shakes in a 50’s style American diner.  They also have wonderful play areas suited for different ages.  We had a great visit last spring – you can read our review here.

Booking a table is highly recommended as it gets every busy, especially on weekends and holidays.

“If you like pancakes, ice cream, burgers and play (and let’s face it, who doesn’t?!) then we reckon you’ll love Billy-Bob’s! Our 50’s style parlour & diner near Bolton Abbey serves up delicious ice cream treats and tasty American Diner fare, and what’s more there’s three imaginative outdoor and undercover play areas for children to enjoy, all set amidst the beautiful views of the Yorkshire Dales!

    We visited Sally’s Coffee Shop & Ice Cream Parlour yesterday . It’s newly opened in Hanging Heaton, Batley at Springwell Farm off Mill Lane. The cafe is small but lovely with a great outdoor seating area and free bouncy castle. Lots of ice cream flavours. We had chocolate and also Rum & Raisin, and Strawberry and it was lovely. Very friendly welcome from the owners and staff. Reasonably priced. Farm shop quite good too. Nothing else to do at the moment for kids but the b. castle but our two enjoyed it, and their 99p tub of ice cream and sprinkles!

    • Erin Ek Rush says:

      Thank you Joanne both for the suggestion and for all the information. Someone had suggested Sally’s but I couldn’t find any information about it online (possibly because it is so new) That’s not far from us. We’ll have to give it a visit. A bouncy castle and ice cream is more than enough to keep my two very happy!

    You’ve missed the Dearne Lea Tea Rooms in Shepley.

    A traditional and somewhat rustic place where you can see the cows being milked. Great home-cooked food but most importantly is that their ice-cream is stunning.

    It certainly much better any of the other local ice-cream – plenty of flavours and very, very cheap.

    I realise that this post is originally from 2014 but the Milk Bar in Hebden Bridge has shut down. They were badly damaged in the floods and have decided not to re-open according to their Facebook page.

  7. Hannah dilworth says:

    Goodalls of Tong is in Tong, not Hebden Bridge! And it is delicious.

  8. Love this post! I have bookmarked it for our next trip to Yorkshire. I think you may have inspired me to write a similar post for the NE x
