I am at the Yorkshire Dales Ice Cream Parlour with Donna, Home is where the tart is., it is a windy day but not too cold. We thought all the boys could do with burning a bit of energy and this is the perfect place.
It is nestled near the Yorkshire dales in Skipton Yorkshire, if you didn't know it was here you would never find it. But it's a real gem.
I am sat in the play barn, which is exactly as it says a huge barn full of hay and swinging ropes, perfect for kids to let their inner monkey out. If you have a nervous disposition this place is heart attack material but a total kiddie heaven, a bargain a £1 per child.
Once we had paid for the boys wristbands and they had charged into the hay, Donna and I bought ourselves a caramel latte and found a bench from where we could see our monkeys, chat and blog.
It is an American Diner concept, which is totally different to anywhere around here the attention to detain is amazing. It is split into four parts the Ice cream parlour/diner, Bus diner, Play Barn and Play area.
Firstly the play barn; two huge barns split into two sections. There is an under 7s and over 7s area, this is fantastic as you are not on pins about your children squashing, or knocking small ones over
The barns are filled with hay bails, lots of swinging ropes and slides, a kid paradise. For us Mums and Dads there is a coffee, and cake bar, which sells huge, delicious cakes and flavoured coffees to refuel.
