The Little Ice Cream Shop opened it's first shop in August 2016 with owner, Amy.

Quickly after, Amy's Mum & Dad got the gelato bug and two years later in July 2018, they took the big step to treat the good people of Windermere to their tasty gelato - it's only fair, right?

All our ice cream is made by us daily at our gelato kitchen in Hawkshead using the finest and tastiest ingredients. We source our milk & cream from a local dairy in Windermere because we know Cumbrian cows are the happiest!

Happy cows = damn tasty gelato

It's simple, natural and most importantly delicious. 

What a great piece of heaven, an ice cream lover’s paradise

We also sell a selection of loose leaf teas, locally roasted filter coffee & gorgeous home-baked cakes available to eat in or take away.
