We have called here many times this summer and enjoyed the different flavours on offer during the summer. I am pleased they have gone back to the original name of Holgates.

Thank you for your review, my apologies for the error with the toppings, and the fact that the ice cream fell off the cone. I hope however, this does not stop you visiting us again in the near future.

Popped in on our way to our campsite. The ice cream was amazing however we all struggled to finish it. Slightly expensive for 4 ice creams 2 kids and 2 adults but when it's homemade you can't go wrong.
