Dottie’s Wafflery and Ice-Cream Parlour

Named after Samlesbury Hall’s very own White Lady, Dottie’s is England’s first ever Wafflery…There are fun filled sweet treats for children and families alike, from decadent desserts to mouth-watering ice-cream milkshakes. A range of scrumptious savoury bites and seasonal specials will tantalise your taste buds, while hens from the Hall’s very own gardens provide free range eggs for the batter prepared each morning. The waffle irons will be sizzling all day, producing only the freshest waffles in the country. 

All ice-creams are made locally in Lancashire by the popular Moo2You using only the finest ingredients and there’s a wide choice of ever changing flavours to choose, from Jammie Dodger to wild cherry.

Sit and savour an ice-cream by the fountain in the historic courtyard on a sunny day, or keep warm in the wafflery with a mug of hot chocolate (with cream and marshmallows of course).
