Welcome to Cream o’ Galloway!

Visit the home of Cream o’ Galloway ice cream where you’ll find more than 20 flavours of deliciously indulgent luxury dairy ice cream to choose from! Set in the beautiful Galloway countryside, Cream o’ Galloway is a family friendly visitor attraction on an organic cow with calf dairy farm. Visit to enjoy Ice Cream Making Workshops, Nature Trails, Crazy Golf, Cheese Making Courses, Farm Tours, Cafe, Sundae Menu and massive Ice Cream Scooping Counter.

Cream o’ Galloway is open daily from April to end October, from 10am – 5pm. Then 10am – 4pm from 1st November. See our website for opening times. The Ice Cream Parlour and Cafe is closed on Mondays and Fridays during term time.

Activities

Ice Cream Making Workshop: This 90 minute activity runs 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 is essential.

Cheese Making Course (full day): The all-day Cheese Making Course is scheduled to run 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. This activity requires a minimum of four participants to run.  Pre-booking is essential

Crazy Golf: Our crazy golf course is all about having relaxed fun as a family. The 9 hole course will take you down and back up a slight slope where you’ll putt over, under and around a range of farm-themed obstacles. Designed and built by our farm team, our crazy golf course is full of fun rather than technical challenge. Popping in for an ice cream, or winding down after a busy day exploring? Then this is a light-hearted activity that the whole family can enjoy together. Crazy golf is open each day the visitor centre is open and costs £3 per person or £10 for a group of four people. No need to pre-book, get your ticket once you are here.

Farm Tours: Unlike most dairy farms we keep our calves with their mum to suckle naturally. Our ethical dairy model is based around treating the animals, the land, our environment and the people who work here with respect and kindness. A farm tour is a great way to find out more about our farming system, and why we farm in the way we do. Check our website for latest details on our farm tours. Pre-booking is strongly recommended.

Nature Trails & Dog Walk: We have an incredibly beautiful natural environment at Cream o’ Galloway and we work hard to protect it, to enrich it and to make it accessible for members of the public to enjoy. There are four miles of signposted nature trails that will help you get close to the nature and the wildlife that have made their home here, and there is no charge to explore them. The trails take in two wildlife lochans, a wildlife hide, acres of woodland that we have planted over the last 20 years. There is also some stately ancient woodland that red squirrels particularly enjoy.

Please note: the adventure playground is now closed.
