Basking in the warmth of an unusually sunny and delightful English summer, there is nothing nicer, particularly if you are a hot horse, than being able to queue up for a cooling ice cream cone at the Winstones ice cream van parked up on Minchinhampton Common, near Stroud, in England’s beautiful rolling Cotswolds.
Minchinhampton Common is a 600 acre area of common land owned by the National Trust and thus accessible to everyone. Whilst today it is an area of recreational pleasure with a huge diversity of natural plants, the Common is also an area of great archaeological importance with prehistoric burial mounds and defensive earthworks dating back to the times of the Roman occupation of Britain. The nearby village of Minchinhampton is particularly pretty and rich in history of the local area. It's church, founded by 1086, lies at the heart of the village.
Winstones ice cream company manufactures arguably the very best and most tasty ice cream available in the area which should be enjoyed whenever possible!! (No sponsorship is involved in this message - just delight!!).
