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.
