Welcome to Otter Valley Ice Cream.

Located in Devon in the beautiful Otter Valley & Blackdown Hills, Otter Valley Dairy is a small family business based on our dairy farm, Aplins Farm, now in its fourth generation.

Our range of Ice Cream, Sorbets, are all made in small batches, based on Italian Gelato, we use only the milk from our own dairy herd combined with the finest of ingredients.

We have flavours to tempt everyones taste buds. From the traditional Vanilla, Chocolate, Strawberry and Honeycomb to the more unusual, Cream Tea, Lemon & Lime Meringue and Seabuckthorn, why not visit us at our Summerhouse to find your favourite.

We also can attend your special occasion. We have a Vintage Ice Cream Bike covering Devon, Cornwall and Somerset to add a special addition to wow your guests.

Want a centre piece dessert? We now produce handmade Ice Cream Cakes - nearly made entirely of ice cream, these cakes are cocooned in a special whipping cream with a glaze over the top.
