Deliciously good fun for all. Taste our range of luxury dairy ice creams and dairy-free sorbets, visit our organic farm and explore the nature trails to see beautiful scenery and wildlife. There's action and adventure with our adrenaline pumping slides, pedal karts, Go Boing - our fabulously bouncy nets, our unique woodland adventure playground and indoor play areas.You can explore the nature trails, do some wildlife spotting in our hide or take part in one of our special wildlife events. There's a designated dog walk where your canine friends can run free and walkers with dogs under control are welcome on the green or purple waymarked nature trails. There are events taking place every day we're open at Cream o' Galloway and lots of special events that run at particular times of the year, such as Meet the Lambs in Spring or Ready Steady Freeze in Summer where you get to make your own ice cream from scratch. Our most popular events are the Farm & Creamery Tour and the Ice Cream Tasting Experience which are available each day we are open. Open daily from end of March to October.

A 'must' visit when staying in the area, The ice-creams are simply the best and cover a wide range of more unusual flavours. There is an eating area indoors (The Barn) for meals and outdoor picnic areas. the play area has been updated and improved over the years since we have been visiting. There are sessions which can be booked... More

A fantastic activity centre that offers a wealth of attractions, from small zip wire, to pedal carts, crazy golf, 3D maze, viewing tower, aerial trampolines, ice cream making, farm tour, etc. Something for all the family. You can even join in the ice cream making. The place has its own highly marketed ice cream brand. Well worth a visit.

Visited whilst stopping at southerness. The whole day was filled with fun & 2 boys aged 9 & 13 plus dad who were shattered after all the bouncing & pedalling haha!!

We were on a weeks holiday at Garlieston with our family including two grandchildren aged 6 and 12. We arrived in the afternoon. We had lunch which was very nice and reasonably priced. The cost for the experience was £13.50 per child which in our opinion is overpriced. The lady at the desk gave us the out of season price... More

School holiday prices, not school holiday service. I accept that the schools in Scotland had returned, but there was plenty of holidaying children from England visiting and the sign for the prices stated it was holiday time. However the number of staff on didn't reflect this. The ticket kiosk was closed and we were instructed to pay for entry in... More

We visited with friends whilst in the area. The variety of ice cream was amazing, particularly the Malt Whisky brand. A well run tourist attraction. It was that good we took samples away for later!! Geared up for kids and very busy when we were there.

Visited Cream O'Galloway while friends with young kids (9,6,2) were visiting. The kids had a ball playing in the play areas, the drop slides, flying fox, bikes and Go Boing. The food was good and the ice cream amazing! The creamiest ice cream I've ever had! Would definitely recommend if you have young kids to entertain.

This was our 3rd trip to Cream O' Galloway and undoubtedly our most successful. Our 6 year old was big enough to go on the Flying Fox and drop slide this year and spent nearly 5 hours running between these two attractions and the go-karts. We also had a bounce on Go Boing and enjoyed some of the amazing ice-cream.... More

Second time I have been to this place in 3 years and it was awful. Both times I have been there people were blatantly pushing in front of me and my family so they can see all the ice cream on offer, this is due to the bad layout and impolite as the general public can be it meant that... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review, I'm so sorry to read that you had such a disappointing visit. You raise several issues which I will try to address. Displaying 26 ice cream flavours across our scoop counters inevitably means a long frontage to our counter and it is usual for visitors to want to see the... More
