Nestled in the Pennine countryside close to Huddersfield is Delph House Farm, a dairy farm that is also home to Yummy Yorkshire, a cafe and ice-cream parlour that opened in 2007 to serve the family’s award winning artisan ice-cream. A popular eatery for patrons, the cafe and ice-cream parlour has become an overwhelming success and in need of an extension to the space to help enhance the visitors experience. 

Initially it was intended that the barn would be converted to offer single story space, however MWA recognised its potential and by including an extra storey 32 additional covers and an office space have been created.

Clever design has added a modern, contemporary twist to a traditional farmhouse look and feel. The new building does not look out of place, it sits naturally within its farm environment and stays true to the family’s heritage - its farming roots. Its robust qualities also reflect its position at the heart of a working dairy farm. The design, which includes a new ground floor dining space, ice cream servery, washrooms and an elevated private dining area to take advantage of Yummy Yorkshire’s exceptional views have helped to deliver the much-needed space to double current covers, whilst also enhancing the customer flow and experience within the building. Adding a modern twist to a traditional farmhouse look and feel, Martin Walsh Architectural has created a contemporary link between the existing and new structure with a full glass roof; the barn extension also boasts a 5m wide x 3.5m high window to frame and make the most of the outstanding views. Sliding barn doors create further segregation, a rustic division housing the washroom facilities, stairs and accommodating a takeout ice-cream serving area.

Efficiency has also been integral to the design which features Solar panels, Structured Insulated Panels (SIPS) and an Air Source heating system.
