Best Ice Cream Parlours In Cornwall

When travelling to the lovely setting of Cornwall, you have plenty of attractions, beaches and restaurants to visit, you can check out our other articles on them too. However, walking about Cornwall with a nice ice cream is very fitting for the scenery, which is why we have this article naming the best ice cream parlours.

The Top Parlours In Cornwall

Roskilly’s Organic Farm

Roskilly’s ice cream has earned a name for making ice cream with a cow to cone experience. Based within the Lizard Peninsula, the milk used in the ice cream makes the signature scrumptious cornish ice cream that is under Roskilly’s name. Since Roskilly’s is locally sourced, you can visit the Jersey cows to see exactly where it came from.   Furthermore, the luscious milk is used in other products too, such as their cream tea!

Moomaid Of Zennor

At the far west side of Cornwall, you can find an ambitious parlour full of ice cream and past stories. The milk comes fresh from the farm they own, full of friesian cows, and are able to deliver over 30 jaw dropping flavours. The perfect place to start when going on a cornwall adventure.

Callestick Farm

The great part about Cornwall is how fresh the milk used in the ice cream is as it’s just round the corner. A very small crowd of Fresian cows live on this small field of Callestick based at the north of Cornwall. The Parker family, who looks after this farm, are extremely friendly and caring towards these cows, so you can expect the most luscious ice cream ranging to 26 different flavours for you to try. 

Chapel Porth Beach

The national trust cafe is famous for running and serving many types of ice cream, but most notoriously the ‘hedgehog’ ice creams. No, it’s not made of hedgehog, rather a clever combination of Cornish ice cream drowned in clotted cream, further topped with hazelnuts, delicious!


Out of all of these ice cream parlours, one of the most pure parlours is Jelberts right at the seafront of Newlyn. There are lots of types of vanilla ice cream and it's by far the best vanilla around the entirety of Cornwall. Jelberts know their stuff, and they love to keep things simple just to simply treat themselves straight from the cows they own.


Known for the specialty, Treleavens is a Cornish ice cream parlour with it’s extra touch of finesse. It’s the ice cream served in the top restaurants across Cornwall, with many variants of flavours. Ever wondered what a vodka pink grapefruit flavour tastes like? Treleavens loves their strawberries and cream flavour, but have many others like toffee fudge, offering a new world of taste!

Mr B’s Ice Cream Parlour

If you liked the sound of Treleavens for its variety, you’re in for a treat. Travel to the centre of Hayle to see Mr B’s Ice Cream Parlour full of variety and flavour. From the early classic flavours to the jaw dropping flavours you never knew existed. Mr B has many flavours, including; pic-n-mix, gingerbread, marshmallow, pistacio and it goes on!   We hope you found this article interesting and helpful. If you ever travel to Cornwall (as we would recommend) definitely grab yourself a fresh and flavoured ice cream for your adventure.
