Brand-new ice cream parlour brings the cool to Bewl

After an action-packed day out with the whole family, there’s nothing better than enjoying a delicious cone or cup of ice cream. And those in Lamberhurst with a sweet tooth now have another location to quell their cravings, as Bewl Water has opened a new parlour just in time for summer.

Previously the old registration office at the Aqua Park, which sees the return of its 2023 season next week, the new ice cream shop has undergone several weeks of restoration.

“We were so pleased to open in time for the Easter holidays. It’s been a huge success, and we believe it is a welcome addition to Bewl Water,” said Events Manager Thomas Noble.

Sourced from Cornwall-based business Kelly’s, whose milk and cream is produced on local dairy farms, ice creams on offer include triple chocolate, cookies and cream, bubble gum and vegan vanilla.

Sour apple and blue raspberry slushies will also be on the menu, alongside strawberry, mint choc-chip, and salted caramel milkshakes, which can be enjoyed with a choice of soya, almond or oat milk.

The ice cream parlour is Bewl Water’s second eatery and can be found next to the Waterfront Café, which serves hot drinks, light bites, and lunch items, such as steak burgers and butcher’s sausages.

It has views of the reservoir, which is southeast England’s largest stretch of open water, and will be open on weekends and throughout the school holidays from 11am-5pm.

During a visit to Bewl Water, families can enjoy a range of fitness-friendly activities, including bike hire, laser tag, soft play, and the Aqua Park, which returns to the reservoir on April 29.

There are also two outdoor playgrounds, plenty of water-based adventures, and guided walking routes to explore, alongside mascot Ranger Bear’s spring trail, which is free to enjoy.



Bewl Water is asking their customers for suggestions to name their new ice cream parlour, which opened during the Easter holidays. Those looking to put their ideas forward can do so by messaging the reservoir’s Instagram page @BewlWater or cast their vote this Friday April 21, when the team will share their top three names in the running.
