Meet Betty the Ice Cream Tricycle!

Betty embodies the wonderfully evocative taste of traditional ice cream served with lashings of style and dollops of retro fun! Although vintage in appearance she conforms to all modern day environmental heath hygiene, licensing and insurance requirements.

Whether touring around our local villages in classic ‘stop me and buy one’ mode, purveying her wares outside The Thatched Cottage in Appleby  or holding court as a centrepiece attraction at an event, she attracts as many smiles as she does customers.

We sell only the best award winning Blyton’s Ice Creams and Sorbets and you’ll be amazed just how many flavours Betty holds. Given a little notice, we are happy to load her up with your favourite flavours too!


Keep a look out for Betty (and Bertie, our mascot!) at the following public events, some of which have been organised by Lindsey Lodge Hospice and which we are proud to support:


Scawby Hall – Sunday, 19th July

Winteringham Open Gardens – Sunday, 24th July

Scawby Hall Open Gardens – Sunday, 23rd July

Epworth Open Gardens – 29th and 30th July

And don’t forget, on occasion we may be found on Ermine Street, Appleby, or taking a trip around the village.
