What areas are close to where you live Katy?
I'm glad you enjoyed your visit!

Um, as for what is "close", well Stone Henge is about 30 miles to the west. Winchester (with a very fine cathedral) is about 16 miles to the south. London is around 49 miles to the east. 30 miles to the south is the coast. North is a scary place that we "southerners" don't go.... (though I have been to Scotland!) I'm kidding!! I've been to Manchester, Liverpool and York and lived to tell the tale.

I did try to put my town on the "map" on here, but (just like trying to put a profile picture up earlier today) it was a failure.

Where did you visit when you were here? Any favourites?

It's lovely. There is just teensiest aftertaste of goat sometimes, but not in a bad way. No billy goat aroma/taste. It's not quite as rich as cow ice cream, but I have noticed that with other goat milk/cream products.

I had a feeling it would be okay!

Not because I have had goat ice cream. But I have had goat's cheese - and that can vary from really mild to quite strong. (I prefer the milder varieties so I am sure the ice cream would be very nice.)

I guess the acid test is - would you have it again?

Oh yeah, I'm looking forward to trying the chocolate.

Goat milk fudge is good. I'm not sure how I'd like the extra bite/something in ice cream, but I'm curious to hear how it was.

It was good. There isn't that bite. Whoever is keeping those goats knows to keep the billy goat away from the nanny's or maybe doesn't have one. As I mentioned, there is a subtle "goat aftertaste" some of the mouthfuls, but not all. It just wasn't as rich as good cow's cream ice cream.

Katy, I went to York too, that was nice there

Also Bakewell, Castleton, both in the lake district

I went to Liverpool, Bridlington, Sheffield (where I stayed with Steve) Nottingham, Melton Mobray and of course London

We also went to Ireland (Steve and I) and stayed in Dublin

So love the UK

It sounds like something that would be better in some flavors and not others. Sounds like 3 out of 4 to me
