Located in the heart of Galloway just a stone’s throw from the coast, Cream o’ Galloway is a popular place to visit for soup and snacks, food and farm events, wildlife spotting and, of course, lots and lots of ice cream, ice cream sundaes and ice cream milkshakes!!! New for 2021 are some great fun, hands-on activities. You can design and make your very own flavour of ice cream, learn the art of cheese making or take part in a farm tour and see the cows with their calves.
The home of luxurious Cream o' Galloway ice cream where you'll find an enormous ice cream scooping counter, plus a cosy cafe serving soup, snacks and refreshments.
Cream o' Galloway ice cream is made with organic milk from their award winning cow with calf dairy farm, and for an ice cream treat there is simply nowhere better! Choose from more than 20 flavours of ice creams and sorbets, or leave it to the ice cream experts to create a spectacular sundae just for you from the tempting sundae menu! Dairy-free sorbet is also available. Alternatively you can pop in for a takehome tub to enjoy at home.
Sister company, The Ethical Dairy, provides the savoury treats, with a range of delicious artisan cheeses, with cheese platters available on the cafe menu, and retail packs to take home.
2021 sees major changes at Cream o’ Galloway, and from this spring there are opportunities to roll your sleeves up and learn how to make ice cream and cheese, taught by the experts!
Ice Cream Making Workshops run regularly during school holidays, in a specially designed, socially distanced new workshop area. Suitable for adults and children (aged 5+), you’ll create your very own dream ice cream from scratch, selecting the flavours you most enjoy, or inventing new flavour combinations. Adult groups will be able to incorporate alcohol flavours. Ice Cream Making Workshops costs £25 per workstation, suitable for up to three people working together. Pre-booking strongly recommended.
The all-day Cheese Making Course runs every Thursday. You’ll learn to make two types of cheese at socially distanced workstations; a soft cheese which can be easily replicated at home and a pressed cheese, which you will then mature at home. Cheese making involves periods of time when you pause and let nature take its course. During these times you’ll go on a quick tour of the farm and you’ll enjoy a cheese tasting experience. The cost of the workshop is £95 per workstation, or £130 for two people sharing a workstation. Pre-booking essential.
Fancy something more relaxed? There are nature trails to explore, a dog walk, regular farm tours, a café and crazy golf too.
Please note: the adventure playground at Cream o’ Galloway is now closed.
