Roskilly's

Taste life on a working organic Cornish farm. Walk the ponds, feed the ducks, watch the cows being milked and then indulge with some of the best ice cream in the county. The cream teas are pretty good too! During the summer months you can enjoy delicious pizza.

A real Cornish Farm

Fantastic Ice Creams and local delicacies, the home produced pizzas cooked in a pizza oven are fantastic. Walking the ponds area is very calming and can form part of an interesting round St Keverne walk.

A great place to visit with children - lots of animals to say hello to, feed the ducks, watch the milking and of course to sample the yummy ice cream! And, if like mine, your little one enjoys driving then it will be hard to tear them away from driving the tractor!

I return to SW Cornwall once a year - and Roskilly's is always on the agenda for the ice cream and cream teas. It's an additional extra when the tide has forced you off the beach early. You can buy Roskilly's ice cream at a few places - but you never get all the flavours they have on offer at the farm. Idyllic walks around the ponds and watching the organisation of the milking while you work your way through their generous ice creams. Not to be missed! :)

A holiday highlight for our children - especially seeing the cows being milked. The ice cream was beautiful. Having visited last about 8 years ago, my husband and I did feel,that the information in the milking shed could have been updated - it did look tatty! Also, they asked children to name the calves but you couldn't see their names. My son (5) would have liked some commentary when the cows came in to be milked. Overall though, we would definitely return

We were a bit disappointed with this place - it was very commercialised and the shop wasn't very good. The ice cream is delicious, especially the gooseberry yogurt flavour, but you can get that at quite a number of other places around there.

Roskilly's Farm

I have to say that this is one of my favourite places in South West Cornwall. A great day out for the family with a chance to walk around the ponds and feed the ducks, to watching the local cows being milked in the Milking Parlour. The milk is then used to make the famous Roskilly's ice cream (delicious!!) After a late summer afternoon stroll through the fields why not stay a bit longer and try their delicious evening barbecues.

Fantastic ice creams and so many flavours to choose from - BBQ banana, Hokey Pokey and Blackberry Cheesecake all go down a treat.

Walking the ponds and farmland is the perfect excuse to build up an appetite for a lovely ice cream - if you can decide on a flavour from the extensive variety made on site! You could tie it in with a visit to one of the nearby beaches, or a longer walk on part of the South West Coast Path. Lunches in the sunny courtyard are good too.

Got to be the best ice-cream in Cornwall! They do tasty salads and pies and wonderful cream teas. In the summer they do a BBQ in the evening. Great for families.

Great whatever the weather

Well you could start with a wander around the ponds, why not bring the dog it is sure to enjoy this! Maybe feed the ducks or even just sit for a while and watch the world go by! Then head back to the barns for a well deserved ice cream. So many different flavours how do you chose? Why not stop and watch milking the kids will love it. Lovely selection of gifts in the gift shop and great local produce. Stop into the evening and enjoy the popular BBQ or on chillier evenings sit in by the open fire and enjoy a warming meal. What ever the weather your sure to enjoy a few hours here.
