The world of scrummy ice cream

Welcome to Balderson's Ice Cream Parlour


Making ice cream for over 25 years we are an independent ice cream manufacturer located in the picturesque North Yorkshire Moors village of Thornton-le-Dale.


Our ice cream is made with a total commitment to quality and a genuine passion for what we do. Made with the very best of ingredients and Italian flavourings, our national award winning ice cream is freshly made each day on our premises and the process can be viewed at various times during the day from within our recently opened ice cream parlour.


One of the best ice creams in Britain...


We are honoured to be featured in The Telegraphs 2014 'Where to go in Britain for the best ice cream and sorbet, from seaside parlours to London gelato bars...


''One of the highlights in the pretty village of Thornton-le-Dale, close to the North Yorkshire Moors and half an hour from Scarborough on the A170, is Balderson's ice-cream parlour, where flavours include rum and raisin, apple crumble and Turkish delight. Scoops are generous and can be squashed onto a cone or crammed into a cardboard cup''.  Recommendation by the Telegraph Travel team and its destination experts.

We are proud of our excellent reputation and welcome you to come along and experience the mouth-watering indulgence for yourself. You can relax in our ice cream parlour or grab yourself a cone and have a stroll around the chocolate-box village of Thornton le Dale.


We are open every day March – October



We invite you to come along ‘chill out’ and enjoy!
