Roskilly’s are based at Tregellast Barton Farm on the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall. We are a family run business milking 125 Jersey cows. Our small pastures have been farmed in a traditional and sustainable way for generations, and we have always farmed without the use of pesticides and artificial fertilizers. All of our delicious ice creams and hand crafted fudges are made using rich organic Jersey milk and cream from our own herd of Jersey cows. We also produce a range of jams and chutneys using old family recipes that have been handed down the generations.

Our Farm and Café, the Croust House, is open all year round serving meals every day from breakfast, fresh salads to clay oven baked pizzas’ and American style smoked meats (summer months only). You can visit and feed all the farm animals: calves, pigs, goats, chickens, turkeys, geese & ducks. You can also go for a stroll around the ponds and withy woods and watch the milking at 4.30pm

Great selection of homemade icecreams made on farm, also home made produce for lunches. Could spend all day here, great for romantic walks or outing with the family. surrounded by beautiful countryside and the ponds are close by where you can walk or picnic, also dog friendly. Would definitely suggest a visit if you have not already been and are... More

Can get very busy in the Summer months but the best ice cream in Cornwall. Kids like to wander around the farm weather permitting.

An interesting working farm that specialises in local produce particularly their icecream. The tea rooms offer good food at reasonable prices and the craft and gift shop has some novelty items

Roskilly's is a well known ice cream maker here at the Lizard and surrounding areas, it is not only their ice cream they also make their own Cornish Clotted Cream. If anyone likes ice cream as most of us do Roskilly's is well worth a try especially to visitors that haven't been down this way before.

I went here on a walk around St Keverne. The ice-creams are very nice and the woods is also very nice with a water wheal and millponds.

We called in for a late lunch at 2.30pm on a weekday. The notice clearly stated that the café closed at 3pm. We sat down and heard from the kitchen a loud voice say 'Isn't it typical that someone has to arrive at 2,30pm'. Nobody came out to serve us so we went up to the counter to ask if... More

We love to visit Roskilly's on our trips to Cornwall. It is very understated and peaceful, which we really appreciate. During October half term, many parts of the county are still so busy, and it's wonderful to visit this quiet spot. We love to wander on the farm walks around the ponds and through the orchard, visit the small selection... More

A fabulous family day out 'away from it all' in a magical, unspoilt corner of old Cornwall. We visited as a birthday treat for my 3 year old grandson, and our party consisted of the youngest at 1yr old in a buggy, the oldest early 50's, two puppies on leads and a disabled guest walking with a stick. We were... More

We visited this place as we had experienced the ice cream in Padstow and had read that we could get sundaes here. We drove about 1 hour from where we were staying and arrived at 16:10 knowing that they closed at 17:00. We entered the restaurant area where no one acknowledged us so we took a seat and looked through... More
