OK Ice Cream in the Lake District

Published: 28.09.2014 by Kyrre Dahl in category: United Kingdom

Not surprisingly in a tourist honeypot like the Lake District there is ice cream everywhere. I was planning to try local ice cream, but the first place I tried in Ambleside was closed. Later I walked down to the Lake at Waterhead.

By now I was so hungry that I didn`t realise it was Yorkshire Dales Ice Cream and not Lakes Ice Cream. But, I tried English Strawberry, and it was quite alright. It was not bad at all, but I was not jumping of happiness either. The flavour was a little weak, that might be because it probably was what it said: English Strawberry

And, of course I am used to gourmet ice cream so the ice cream has to be extraordinary to impress. I can easily understand that other people puts this ice cream is on their top list. As I said, not bad at all. And at 2 pounds for a medium cone, eg. two scoops, the price is not bad, either.

This is a booth, so no tables or chairs, but there are several benches along the waterfront promenade, with excellent views of Lake Windermere and the cruiseships.

There are several places selling ice cream in this area, so you have several choices. But then again, there were hundreds of people standing in line for a cruise on the lake, so I guess in high season these places are really busy.
