An Aladdin’s cave of treats. Old fashioned jars of sweets, tins of confectionery, foil wrapped bars of fudge and toffee, all jostle for space in our period shop. There are also branded ice-creams available.

The Ice-Cream Parlour serves Matlock Meadows traditional ice cream from 12:30pm. Due to Covid-19 Up-dates, please pay for your ice-cream at either Barnett’s Sweet Shop or the Forge Gift Shop and take your receipt to the Ice-Cream Parlour to receive your ice-cream.  Face coverings are recommended (unless you are exempt under government guidelines).
