WHat we do..

We serve 22 flavours daily to the lovely folk of the Lake District, UK.

All of our gelato is made fresh by ourselves on site in our Gelato Kitchen in Hawkshead.

On top of this, we also have a selection of juicy sorbets made from fresh fruit.

We believe that no one should miss out on a scoop so we are VEGAN & GLUTEN FREE friendly - please ask a member of staff upon arrival what tasty treats you can have!



“Hello hello hello,

My name is Amy and I am the proud owner of The Little Ice Cream Shop.

I opened the shop when I was 18 years old in 2016 in a bid to try and save up enough money so I could move down to London and pursue my dream to train & work as an actor- crazy idea right?

The shop exploded with popularity very quickly. People were queuing out the door and going mad for our gelato - I couldn’t believe it!

In July 2018 Mum & Dad jumped on board and we expanded the gelato empire and opened The Little Ice Cream Shop #2 in Windermere.

And it worked! In November 2017 I moved to London. I’m now training at drama school and I have just been in my first professional show! Phew…

Gelato is Italian for ice cream.

Gelato is creamier, smoother and has less fat in it than traditional English ice cream. That means you can enjoy your scoops guilt-free!

We source our milk & cream from a local dairy in Windermere as we believe in supporting local businesses and we also know that Cumbrian Cows are the happiest.

Our gelato is handcrafted in small batches daily by Amy & her Mum in the Gelato Kitchen which is where all the magic happens!
