Welcome to Charlotte’s Jersey Ice Cream Parlour

Come and enjoy our home made award winning Jersey Ice Cream whilst taking in the stunning views over the Calder Valley. We’ve had a refit including a new ice cream counter, so come and see us, we’re open 7 days a week!

Please note – most of our animals are now tucked up nice and warm and away for winter, but they’ll be back in the spring!

Entry is free, so bring the children to meet the animals. New for 2019 we’ve got three rheas, wallabies and baby alpacas. We’ve also got peacocks, rare breed birds, lots of goats, very friendly donkeys, and of course Jersey cows. Enjoy our delicious home made ice cream and award winning sorbets, then burn off some energy in the outdoor play area.

The entertainment doesn’t stop there, the kids can ride the Charlotte’s Express, slide the giant inflatable, play crazy golf, and enjoy our great new adventure play area. Our playground is newly revamped – tale a look at more of the pictures in the attractions section. Our latest ride is the animal trailer – a bouncy ride round the fields behind our mini tractor.

We make our own ice cream for you to enjoy in the parlour, to take away, or from the new Cone Stop at the play area. We also serve fresh ground coffees, home made desserts and seasonal snacks. We are open every day of the year except Christmas day, but do check our summer and winter opening times before setting off.
