Cheshire Ice cream farm - where do I start??
We have only been going since 2005, I knew there was an ice cream farm not far from us, but never knew where it was. I would always see in the dessert section of restaurants and pubs ice cream from Cheshire ice cream, and I said to hubby we must try it out one day.
We found out where it was and off we went. It took us 20 minutes to get there. It was well sign posted for local people to find and those who travelled further afield.
It is located in a place called Tattenhall - not to be confused with Tatton Park as I thought it was!! It is around the corner from the candle workshop and Beeston Castle.
Cheshire Ice cream farm is one of the largest ice cream farms in the country. It has free admission and includes play areas, animals, milking barn, the ice cream parlour and coffee shop and farm shop.
When you arrive there is a small car park, with a larger car park opposite. You will first see the Farm shop, which stocks lots of local meats, vegetables and fruit, and local organic foods and other foods from Cheshire and the North West.
There is then a small gift shop with a coffee shop which can seat 60 people. Next to this is the ice cream Parlour.
Cheshire ice cream farm serves over 30 different ice creams. You can actually have a free tester to help you decide which one to try. There are also 5 different cone types, such as palin cones, double cones, chocolate coated cones, tubs.
Ice cream flavours include;
Usual flavours, banana, chocolate, strawberry etc.
Then there are lots of luxury flavours such as:
Rasberry pavalova, Ferrero Rocher, baileys, pistachio, cointreau & orange, banoffie and plenty more. My favourite is ferrero rocher...yum yum.
There is also diabetic ice cream flavours available, and all are available for vegetarians.
They also serve sorbets too.
The parlour itself has seating, which overlooks one of the play barns. It has a huge counter at the back of the room to serve the ice cream, and it has 3 or 4 deep freezers full of tubs of ice cream you can buy and take home with you...perfect.
It is always that busy that the queues are out of the doors, but no one minds as they work through the queues quite quickly.
Pricing is really reasonable too, £2.50 for a double chocolate cone, which allows you to get two flavours!
We go approximately every other month even if it's just for an hour, we go get an ice cream, watch the cows get milked, go and look at the animals, and just enjoy some country air.
If you are in Cheshire go and give some of the award winning ice creams a try!
Summary: Go give it a try, we love it
