Blackdown Bliss – savouring summer with a celebratory ice cream

( Last Updated: 07-09-2016 )

Otter Valley Ice Cream is helping the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) to celebrate its 25th anniversary through the sale of Blackdown Bliss, an ice cream made especially for the occasion. The Blackdown Hills, rich in wildlife and heritage, was designated a protected landscape in 1991.

Blackdown Bliss, a blackberry and blueberry-flavoured ice cream, will be on sale throughout August from Otter Valley’s summerhouse, near Monkton.

Otter Valley Ice Cream has kindly agreed to donate some of the profits from the sale of Blackdown Bliss to the Blackdown Hills Countryside Fund. The Fund supports local wildlife, heritage and educational projects within the AONB, helping communities to care for their surroundings.

AONB Manager, Linda Bennett said:
“Stunning surroundings and scrumptious ice cream: what a superb summertime duo! I am delighted that Otter Valley Ice Cream, a business so firmly rooted in the Blackdown Hills, is joining us to celebrate our 25 years as a protected landscape. Time for a taste of Blackdown Bliss!”

Otter Valley’s summerhouse is not only home to a tasty selection of ice creams and sorbets, it is a great location from which to enjoy one of the many delightful views across the Blackdown Hills AONB – the patchwork of fields and hedgerows leading to Dumpdon Hill, an impressive iron-age hill fort.

Otter Valley Ice Cream director and marketing manager, Rebecca Bond said:
“We are delighted to support the Blackdown Hills AONB in celebrating its 25th Anniversary - with a custom made ice cream wonderfully named Blackdown Bliss; a delicious medley of Blackberry & Blueberry, of which we will be donating money from each sale towards the Blackdown Hills
