Roskilly’s are based at Tregellast Barton Farm on the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall. We are a family run business milking 125 Jersey cows. Our small pastures have been farmed in a traditional and sustainable way for generations, and we have always farmed without the use of pesticides and artificial fertilizers. All of our delicious ice creams and hand crafted fudges are made using rich organic Jersey milk and cream from our own herd of Jersey cows. We also produce a range of jams and chutneys using old family recipes that have been handed down the generations.

Our Farm and Café, the Croust House, is open all year round serving meals every day from breakfast, fresh salads to clay oven baked pizzas’ and American style smoked meats (summer months only). You can visit and feed all the farm animals: calves, pigs, goats, chickens, turkeys, geese & ducks. You can also go for a stroll around the ponds and withy woods and watch the milking at 4.30pm

Love this place. The best ice cream and the best cream teas so it's hard to decide which to have. Or just be like us and have both and hope that you won't feel too stuffed sick. I highly recommend this place, I've always loved it.

We spent just under an hour here visiting with the kids. We thought it would be a good place to go as dog friendly and it was in that respect. It's free to park and there's a big cafe in the middle. We all had an ice cream and they were great. We went to watch the cows being milked... More

As entry is free, the farm cannot be faulted on value for money. But it's not a straightforward journey to get there, and worth thinking about alternatives. There are a few non-dairy farm animals, who are entertaining but essentially there as a "token" display. We had hoped that our 8-year-old would enjoy the experience of seeing how dairy products went... More

First visit after living in the area for 16 years. The breakfasts looked very good but didn't rate the ice cream which we thought would be first rate, unfortunately there was too much ice and not enough cream. I realise it's a working farm but it all looks quite rundown especially the areas where the animals are kept. There is... More

Came down for some lunch with my young children and mum, had a look at the menu and was quite disappointed at choice. We left after 10 mins. Such a shame as Roskillys used to be such a lovely place. It's starting to look a little bedraggled/tatty too! Ice cream is always fab though

Came here twice during our stay in Cornwall, first time had tea and cake, second time we came in the evening for the Pizza night - BEST pizza I've ever had. Made by hand in a wood fired oven, it was fantastic. Great service too. And price reasonable. Definitely visiting again on my next visit.
