Scream for Icecream

Parlour pleasures – where to get your fill of icecream in the North East this summer

wheelbirks icecreamWheelbirks, Northumberland

One of our faves because it’s a cool spot for grown-ups too. Icecream made on the farm with dazzling flavours from croissant to coffee to luscious wild cherry. A perfect orchard and playbarn for the little ones too.

On the outskirts of Darlington this is a day-out kind of place. Home-made icecream of course with a best-selling Gianduia – which tastes like Ferrero Rocher!

This is a grand place for a day out – use the ‘carrot’ of a fabulous icecream sundae as the finishing point of the lovely riverside walk from the old station round the river to Easby Abbey, it’s lovely.

Crescent Café/Arrighis

This family run café and ice cream parlour known locally as Delaval Ices, is a place of pilgrimage. The icecream is made to a secret, almost legendary family recipe and now there are many different flavours from crème brulee to bilberry.
