We had a trip up to The Milk Churn cafe and gelateria in Scarcroft as an after school treat and it did not disappoint!
Based on the working farm of T.D Goodall all the gelato is made fresh on the farm, from the milk and cream from their own cows. With a wide selection of gelato* and sorbet flavours that change regularly, you are spoilt for choice. The staff were really helpful and let us have a taste of a few flavours to help us make our decision, cookies and cream was a big hit with the Mini Mumblers! You can also choose from a selection of cones (including chocolate dipped ones!) or tubs.
*A single scoop cone cost £2.50.
As well as gelato the cafe also serves hot drinks, smoothies and the cakes looked amazing!! (will certainly be returning to give these a try) They also serve a range of paninis over lunch (12-2pm).
There is plenty of indoor seating and a lovely grassed area with benches outside which look out over the farm and gorgeous countryside surrounding the farm.
There is a small play area outside which has a climbing structure, swings and plenty of space for children to play in. The play area is probably best suited to children up to 8 years of age. The youngest Mini Mumbler had a great time watching the tractors come and go on the farm as well! They have plans to offer farm tours during the summer holidays as well.
Toilets and highchairs available.
Opening Hours: Monday- Sunday, 10am – 5pm, lunch available 12-2pm

Not a local ice cream parlour but well worth the trip! The youngest mumbler and I often pop up during the day for a treat! There are approx 25 flavours of ice cream!! If you don’t fancy an ice cream there is a great tea room. There is also plenty to keep children entertained for a couple of hours with a farm themed play area and animals to see.
