On a warm day, there is nothing better than enjoying a delicious ice cream on the Cornish coast. We have found 7 of the best parlours in the county to pick up a scoopful by the sea…
Jus’ Desserts, St Ives
Enjoy a classic Mr Whippie, or for the more adventurous, try flavours including pistachio and Baileys coffee or lime and berry, at Jus’ Desserts in the picturesque setting of St Ives. Don’t forget to take advantage of the toppings, they’re free!
Pavilion Ice, Perranporth
Pavillion Ice is home to luxury Cornish handmade ice cream in gluten free cones and has been since 2012. You’ll be spoilt for choice with over 25 different flavours to choose from including black jack liquorice or New York Cheesecake ice cream.
Perran Dairy, Perranporth
For over 50 years Perran Dairy have been serving the Perranporth community with tasty ice cream made from Roddas cream and milk for an authentic Cornish taste. After a day wandering around the local shops, pop into the colourful parlour before venturing to the beach and watching the waves, with a delicious ice cream in a gluten free cone to hand.
Elevenses today in Perranporth – I ate about a third, yes slimming world hates me but I'm having a bad health time and I'm on holiday, had a few bad choices but it's not my old eating ways. Saturday is my new start – new diary too and plenty of SAS logs! #elevenses #icecreamwaffle #spoonie #spoonielife #notsoslimmingworld #fatty #holiday #foodporn #perrandairy #cantstopeating #needhelp #saslog #slimmingworldlife #slimmingworldjourney #upsanddowns
Mr B’s, Hayle
Mr B’s ice cream parlour is open seven days a week in the heart of Hayle, and the ice creams are made from locally sourced Cornish produce and Italian ingredients. We recommend that you try the Dutch apple crumble or the much-loved triple choc chunk fudge chunk choc chip ripple.

Moomaid of Zennor, St Ives
Moomaid of Zennor is a small, family business situated in St Ives that prides itself on its luxury Cornish ice creams and delicious sorbets. You’ll be spoilt for choice with over 30 flavours from traditional to special tastes; we recommend that you try the almond and amarena cherry. As well as in St Ives, Moomaid of Zennor can also be found on the beautiful Porthtowan beach.
Callestick Farm, Truro
Truro’s family run ice cream parlour serves a variety of award-winning desserts. The north Cornish ice cream is from a family recipe with free range milk from a grass-fed herd. Why not try some alternative flavours? We recommend the Jaffa Cake or Toasted Coconut flavour, both made from natural ingredients.
Cherries Jubilee, where have you been all my life? So lucky to have @callestickfarm just up the road – they have a few animals to look at and a little playground (as well as the dreamy ice cream counter), so it's a great place to kill an hour or so during the hols. Now can anyone recommend some swimwear with tummy control, I fear there's no light version of Cherries Jubilee!
