Artisan ice cream
Cool off with the best artisan ice cream
Ryeburn of Helmsley makes the most amazing award-winning ice cream with a myriad of flavours. You'll find it on the menus of tearooms and pubs throughout the area too. Continue an ice-cream tour of Helmsley with a trip to Porters Coffee Shop, for their gelato made on the premises while Hunters of Helmsley import their lovely ice cream all the way from the Yorkshire Dales (actually only 30 miles away!).
Elsewhere we have Suggit's, a local institution in Great Ayton serving its homemade ice cream since 1925. Its queues are legendary but definitely worth the wait while Baldersons in Thornton le Dale are mere youngsters having only been crafting their award winning flavours for 25 years.
Beacon Farm Ice Cream Parlour at Sneaton near Whitby is a working dairy farm making ice cream from the cows' milk grazed in the North York Moors. Not far away, milk from 12 pampered Jersey cows on pastures overlooking Whitby Abbey goes into Teare Woods Luxury Jersey ice cream, from cow to cone in less than 3 hours. Find their ice cream parlour near Whitby's swing bridge and in lots of other places too.
