The Orange Elephant Ice Cream Parlour
It’s a given that we’ll be heading to the Orange Elephant Ice Cream Parlour this school holidays.
We had Isabelle’s 6th Birthday Party there last September. We took a huge picnic, played and then finished off with some scrummy ice cream with a selection of toppings.
If you haven’t already paid a visit to the Orange Elephant then here are a few bits and bobs.
You must have seen the actual Orange Elephant if you’ve driven towards Torquay or Plymouth before you get to Telegraph Hill (we always look out for it).
Opening Times Every day 10am – 5pm until September
Entrance is £2 for adults and £1 for kids. Under 3’s are free.
A family pass is £12.
Baby changing facilities are available.
Summer Meadow and Play area – There are animals to see such as cows, pigs and sheep as well as the Play area which has lots of wooden play apparatus as well as sand pits and open spaces (perfect for a picnic).
The Maize Maze – Find your way around the Maize Maze which is in the shape of an elephant. Split up into teams and see who finds their way round first.
The Ice Cream – The Ice Cream is amazing. There’s a huge selection. Last year we tried a Lemon Sundae and a Chocolate Brownie Sundae. It was total heaven in a glass. For Isabelle’s birthday we had a little girl who was dairy free, but she had a choice of several sorbets which was nice.
Is it worth a visit?
We would recommend getting the annual pass so that you can visit any time that you like. You would only have to visit a couple of times before you would have paid for it. You could meet up with friends and spend the day and take a picnic or you could pop along for a coffee and an ice cream treat.
