Dalscone Farm Park
Enjoy a memorable experience at Cream o' Galloway and discover what goes on behind the scenes to create the scrumptious ice cream. Book a place on one of the fun and informative tours for a look around the farm before savouring a complimentary scoop of your favourite flavour. If tasting one ice cream isn't enough, you can join the Ice Cream Experience to try a selection of flavours after learning all about how they are made.
Why not spend the rest of the day in the outdoor play areas where there is an adventure playground and pedal karts to keep both children and adults entertained? Hire a bike and hone your cycling abilities on the skills track, packed full of technical challenges for aspiring cyclists and experienced mountain bikers. For a more relaxing afternoon, take a quiet walk along one of the farm’s nature trails to see native trees and ponds and spot some local wildlife.
Dumfries & Galloway's farm parks offer exciting activities for the whole family. Spend an afternoon at Dalscone Farm Fun and see animals such as llamas, donkeys and pigs in their 'Farmari'. After meeting various species enjoy the great outdoors with a round of crazy golf or get the whole family onto one of the pedal karts for a look around the rest of the farm.
Not far away is another fantastic option Mabie Farm Park. Collect your bag of feed from the shop and get up close to friendly animals such as Highland and Belted Galloway cows, Shetland ponies, Jacob sheep, ducks, peacocks and many more besides. For a fun way to explore the farm children can go on donkey rides or small children can enjoy a trip on the 'Choo Choo Express' through the park.
With many more attractions to enjoy at the farm parks such as quad bikes, astro slides, boating ponds and adventure playgrounds alongside indoor play areas with bouncy castles, soft play areas, and trampolines you can have a great day whatever the weather.
Refuel at the tearooms, which serve homemade snacks and cakes, or enjoy a picnic whilst admiring stunning scenery.
