Following on from my Norfolk theme in last night’s post I thought I’d share another favourite of ours. We love to visit Holkham Hall and see the deer roaming around the beautiful estate.
This year was the first time I’ve visited Holkham when the weather was really hot, so of course we had to indulge in some of Holkham Hall’s own ice cream; it was really tasty, to quote my husband “it was the best ice cream I’ve ever had.” We tried both the vanilla and the flavour of the day which was mango. Both were delicious, the mango was subtle and delicate with none of the sharpness that a mango sorbet would give.
My son adores ice cream or “icey cream” as he calls it and he is just about able to eat it by himself from the cone. He has been so desperate to be able to eat ice cream from a cone all by himself that I’ve had to teach him how to do it. I have to keep him well covered up, hence the tea towel, and have a pack of wet wipes to hand.
