Due to the retirement of Chris and Wendy and the ongoing Covid situation we have made the difficult decision not to open Barford Farmhouse Ice Cream this year. Thank you to everyone who has supported us, we look forward to seeing you all in the future.

Dorset Ice Cream

The delicious ice creams and sorbets are made at Barford Farm, Sturminster Marshall, Wimborne, Dorset BH21 4BY on the National Trust Kingston Lacy Estate. The truly farmhouse products are lovingly made using only the finest ingredients for you to enjoy.

Children's size and Gluten free cones are available as well as Diabetic Ice Creams so everyone is catered for.

The Ice Cream Garden

The ice cream garden is open during the glorious English Spring and Summer months.

Barford Farmhouse Garden is situated very close to the River Stour at White Mill and surrounded by many beautiful walks. The garden and ice cream makes the perfect resting place and dogs on leads are welcome. It is a real hidden Dorset gem with different little nooks and spaces to sit in with ample seating. Beautifully tranquil with a fish pond and wet area and amazingly popular. If you have never been before a visit is a must!

Weather permitting - may be closed on very wet days.
