On a mission to search for ice-cream on a sunny bank holiday, we headed into the hills above Mold courtesy of Google and Sat Nav. I’ll admit I was sceptical about finding an ice cream shop the further into the countryside we ventured, so what a fantastic surprise to stumble upon Gelateria Domingo the Llama at Glan Llyn Farm, a colourful and peaceful spot to stop for a cooling drink or ice cream and sample a taste of the Mediterranean (only 4 miles from Mold!).
I was very happy to discover that Gelateria Domingo is completely accessible so that I could share some lovely pictures and info on here! The car park is next to the little café, and access is via a gently sloping paved path. The area around the tables and lawned area/football area (!) is level (just a few small edges). Access to see the chickens is also level.
The owners Richard and Paola came out to welcome us, and Paola served up some delicious treats and complimentary water. Paola is Italian, and has definitely created a little corner of Italy in Wales.
There is level access to a children’s play area at the back of the farm, and you can wander round and spot the horses and the famous Domingo himself.
Glan Llyn Farm is also an e-bike hire centre and has holiday accommodation on site, including a caravan, cottage and 3 en-suite bedrooms in the farmhouse. www.guestinourhouse.co.uk.
Richard offered to show me the cottage (which was beautiful) and I took a few cheeky pictures to give you an idea of accessibility, although obviously we haven’t stayed here.
Access to the cottage is down a smooth paved path with level entry in through the front door. The interior is all on one level, and has 2 double rooms, each with TV and ensuite wetroom. The open plan living area has a kitchen, lounge area with woodburner and a door onto the patio to take in the countryside view – there is 1 step down onto the patio.
Glan Llyn Farm and Gelateria Domingo the Llama is a special place to relax, enjoy the stunning views and enjoy some Italian style treats in Mediterranean surroundings. It is also ideal for entertaining the small people in the family with meeting the animals, enjoying the play area or having a game of football. And luckily for us – it’s all on one level and very well-maintained so really accessible.
