I found Yorkshire's tastiest ice cream by turning right before Skirlaugh


If you're like me, you've probably mindlessly driven past the farm shop sign on the A165 dozens of times.

After all, it's in the balance between Skirlaugh and Willow Pastures Country Park and is easy to drive past if you're on a mission and want to get somewhere else. But one day curiosity got the better of me and I drove back to have a look around.

The car park for The Farm Shop @ Skirlaugh is well maintained and there are picnic benches conveniently placed in a sun box on the far side next to some fields. A converted barn has been converted into the spacious main shop.


My first impression was that it was very charming. Inside, the shelves were crammed with local produce including fresh free range eggs, cheeses, meats, homemade meat pies, traditional pork pies, luxury Grimsby fish pies, locally made oils, sauces and freshly baked bread.

There was also plenty of delicious looking fresh produce – I put some baby potatoes and cherry tomatoes in my basket. But the most important thing for me on this warm summer day was the freezer filled with ice.

I was drawn to Brymor Dairies' handmade clotted cream ice cream. It was a brand I hadn't heard of before and the shop also sold Burgess ice cream in a range of flavours, which I had tried and quite liked.

The traditional clotted cream flavour was too tempting and I bought my very first tub of ice cream from Brymor Dairies. As I recall, it was much cheaper than the regular Ben & Jerry's in the supermarket.
