“Well worth the trip home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

I am a Northumbrian ex pat, exiled in search of a living for my family, But when home, this is a must stop for their home made ice cream. I cannot emphasise enough this is probably one of the few must haves or must do's when am home. So to fnid it here - to quote a current advert - "one of the best kept secrets - but thats purely between the two of us"..
And please.. don't eat all my ice cream !!

“Ice Cream. Really really good ice cream.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

What a fabulous collection of ice creams on offer. I can't even remember what all the flavours were... so many! Anyway, if you're in the area, stop off, get a scoop or three and have a wander down the beach. It's worth it.

“Old fashioned delight.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2013

Little old fashioned ice cream shop, positioned above the beautiful beach at Cresswell.
Shop sells drinks, sweets, crisps and kiddies fishing nets, small pocket money toys etc.
Of course the big draw here is the homemade ice cream.Available in vanilla and lots of other flavors too.
Always packed out on a sunny day, couple of tables outside to sit and eat your ice cream.
Helpful staff and everywhere is lovely and clean.

“Fantastic Ice Cream, A piece of history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013 via mobile

This place is a gem, we'd been told to try this place during our trip to Cresswell Towers, we weren't disappointed,
The Ice Cream is fab, I couldn't prize myself away from the Rum and Raisin, but during our week the wife tried Black Cherry, Peach and Tutti Frutti, she loved the Black Cherry the most,
Prices really reasonable and the shop sits right on the coast, a short stroll from the caravan site, it's just perfect,
I'd recommend it to anyone in the area.
