A summer holiday, or any holiday in fact, wouldn’t be complete without one thing. Classic, novel, with a flake, waffle cone or in huge tubs to-go, nothing says “indulgence” quite like hearty scoops of smooth, delicious ice cream. Fortunately, that’s something we’re not short of in the Lizard, but if you really want to experience the crème de la crème, there’s one place you should go: Roskilly’s.
A family-run organic farm, Roskilly’s is the product of decades of hard work. Only using pastures that have been traditionally farmed using sustainable methods for generations, the farm rear and graze their own beautiful herd of Jersey cows in grassy fields on the Lizard Peninsular. The result? The tastiest ice creams, sorbets and frozen yogurts imaginable.
Winners of multiple awards, the success of this humble farm speaks for itself. Offering free entry, Roskilly’s encourages visitors of all generations to enjoy a memorable day out at the farm, complete with educational opportunities and, of course, the chance to discover the array of delicious flavours available.
If you would like to go, it’s about 10 miles from us at Penmenner B&B and there is a generously-sized car park a short walk from the farm itself. Comprised of a main visitors’ centre with a restaurant and ice cream parlour, gift shop and facilities, there is also an animal meet and great area, a viewing gallery and walking trails. In short, there is plenty to keep everyone entertained!
When you are ready to sit down with your ice cream of choice, there is plenty of inside and outside seating. Browse the mouth-watering variety of flavours and choose your favourite. From apple sorbet to Cornish golden fudge ice cream, and from ginger beer sorbet to dairy-free coconut ice cream, you are sure to find the perfect scoop to please the palate.
Using the purest ingredients without adding preservatives, Roskilly’s make the majority of their ingredients at the farm. As well as the delicious chewy, crunchy and nutty bits, the farm even sources their water for their sorbet collection from a local spring. Check out their website to find out more.
