'From field to freezer in a day' sums up our ice cream making process in that freshness and provenance are foremost. The luxurious ice cream for which we've become known together with the smooth textured sorbets made with local fruit where possible are displayed in the farm's ice cream parlour which doubles as a cafe serving coffee, tea, snacks, light lunches, and refreshments.
This is complemented with a certified campsite with electric hookup availability, and ablutions block. Adjacent to the campsite is a play area for younger children which is available to campers and visiting public alike.

Visitors to the farm can access the farm trail for a small fee for anyone aged 12 and above (with those younger than 12 entering for free). The trail passes by the Play area and then through field and copse to woodland and a popular Adventure trail. From there it passes through Wildflower meadows, resplendent in late June, and then into ancient woodland arriving at a 19th-century lime Kiln. The path then loops back toward the farmstead. Along the way, spectacular views into Monmouthshire and north towards Hereford are afforded.

Directions & Parking

Map pin Rowlestone Court
Taking A465 south from Hereford towards Abergavenny turn right signpost Rowlstone in Pontrilas (at the Pontrilas Builders merchants). Follow this road for 1.5 miles. Rowlestone Court is the second farm on the right along this road with clear signage on wooden rails at the bottom of the drive

Caring For The Planet

The photovoltaic array on the farm sheds helps allay a considerable portion of the electricity required to run the freezers and milking gear etc.
We always seek local suppliers of ingredients for our products as a preference eg Windmill hill fruits of Harewood End. Tygwyn cider, Rowlestone. Gwatkins Cider, Abbeydore.
We are felling Ash woodland suffering Ash Die Back disease with new planting of British native hardwood trees and entering the Countryside Stewardship scheme to encourage biodiversity.
The cows roam free to graze for 7 months of the year from April until the end of October.
  • Energy from renewable sources
  • Recycling (>75% of all waste)
