Owner description: 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.
Useful Information: Wheelchair access, Bathroom facilities, Food available for purchase

We always make a point of buying Ice cream from here whenever we are in the area. There is a huge selection of ice creams and they are delicious. It is also great supporting a local farmer- yes it is made on farm.

My children love seeing all the animals- all of which are happy and well cared for.

some great flavours of ice cream and kids love where the ice cream is served as it spins around.
Its on a working farm so you get to see the animals and depending when you go you might see some baby animals.

What to do on a cold Sunday afternoon in February? Go to Matlock meadows and see the oh so cute piglets, calves, sheep and chickens. Then after a thorough handwash, pop inside for some delicious icecream and a pot of tea or some lunch. Really delicious and some local farm produce to buy too. The kids loved it and we did too. We'll certainly call again.

Visited here by chance looking for somewhere for a cup of coffee. What a lovely suprise to find all the animals there to pet! We loved the piglets and baby rabbits and enjoyed fussing the calves and heavily pregnant pig. The coffee was equally good. Never seen so much care and attention go in to making a cappuccino. There's excellent hand washing facilities so no danger of nasty diseases being spread. We'll definitely be be back to see the new born piglets later this month!
