Hartley’s Ice Cream

Hartley’s have produced  traditional ice cream in Cumbria for over eighty years. In that time we have established a reputation for delicious, high quality ice cream made using only the finest ingredients and traditional methods handed down over generations.

Established during the early 1930′s by Grayson Hartley, who used to sell ice cream from his motorbike and sidecar, we have been following the same traditional recipe and using wholesome fresh ingredients ever since.

Traditional Ice Cream made to a Family Recipe

With a huge variety of flavours to choose from and a selection of refreshing sorbets too, Hartley’s Traditional Ice Cream is widely recognised as being some of the finest in Cumbria. Why not pay us a visit at our Ice Cream Parlour in Egremont and treat yourself, you’ll soon see what makes Hartley’s Ice Cream so special!

We make our traditional ice cream on the premises, and during the summer we produce fresh ice cream everyday. You can also buy our fresh ices from one of our six Hartley’s Ice Cream Vans that operate within a fifteen mile radius of our Egrement ice cream parlour.

Customer Testimonials

In my opinion, the best ice cream you will ever taste. This is a local company based in nearby Egremont, following success and a long history the company branched out from an ice cream van to opening ice cream parlours. This one in Cockermouth is an ice cream parlour and coffee shop. I think vanilla is the best, but they have every flavour imaginable – the ones incorporating local produce such as raspberries are also divine. If you’re not travelling too far, you can also buy the ice cream by the box load!!
