However, when it comes to deciding which ice cream parlour is the best, the task can be daunting. Factors such as flavour selection, ingredient quality, setting, and personal preferences come into play. Nevertheless, we have narrowed down The View Broxa’s top picks, all of which boast their own unique qualities that set them apart as the supreme choice.

First on the list is Holy Cow, Scarborough. Situated on South Bay seafront, this parlour greets visitors with friendly smiles and offers over 30 flavours of organic ice cream, fruit and milk pops, as well as a wide range of milkshakes and waffles. With its appeal to the younger generation, Holy Cow is an excellent choice for families looking to indulge in a sweet treat. After enjoying a cone, don’t forget to bring some pennies for the slot machines! Next up is Peaches ‘n’ Cream, offering a generous portion of soft serve ice cream with a variety of flavours and toppings to choose from. Our personal favourite is the ‘caramel honeycomb’. Take a gentle stroll along North Bay beach after indulging in this delightful treat, making it the perfect spot to enjoy with friends or family.

For those seeking a nostalgic and atmospheric experience, Harbour Bar in Scarborough might be your top choice. Since 1945, Harbour Bar has been a hotspot for locals and tourists alike, boasting retro charm and delicious whippy ice cream served in cones or with sweet treats.

Baldersons in Thornton le Dale is another parlour worth visiting, serving delicious homemade ice cream with a great array of flavours to choose from. Located in one of the most picturesque villages in North Yorkshire, Balderson’s Ice Cream is the perfect stop for a sweet treat after a day of adventure in Dalby Forest.

Last but not least is Beacon Farm in Whitby, known for its farm-fresh ice cream made on-site with panoramic Whitby views. With a play park and the surrounding countryside, it’s a great place to enjoy a sweet treat and some family fun.

It’s hard to choose just one as our top pick, as we love them all. For those seeking a picturesque village after a visit to Dalby Forest, Baldersons might take the crown. For families and those seeking beachside fun, Peaches ‘n’ Cream is the best bet. If supporting local and enjoying farm-fresh ice cream appeals to you, Beacon Farm or Holy Cow could reign supreme. For a nostalgic and atmospheric experience, Harbour Bar is the perfect spot. We recommend visiting each spot and deciding for yourself before returning to your hot tub at The View Broxa, luxury lodge.
