Description:

Matlock Meadows is a modern purpose built ice cream parlour and coffee shop...

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.

Great for families with young children. The play area & viewing animals is free. Just a small charge for animal feed & ride on tractors. Great ice cream too (salted caramel is amazing!)

This is a hidden little gem. The ice cream here is absolutely amazing. Loads of choice and all are delicious. The animals are fun to look at and it's enjoyable to be on a working farm. Definitely call in!

Blueberry x2 was our choice. Excellent value, creamy taste, crispy cones, flavour to die for. Relax while eating the cone of your choice and take in the great countryside views.

A working farm with a few animals and chickens for young children to view, a simple play area and lots of space. Very good ice cream made on the farm, quite good snack food in the cafe. Quiet location away from the busy roads of Matlock, but close enough to the town centre.

Matlock meadows is fantastic!! It's a great, free, family run farm that offers ice cream and a rural play retreat for the kids. We live local and often visit, much to our kids delight! A great place to spend an hour or two sipping coffee, eating ice cream and playing with the children. The staff are always polite and helpful... More
