Holdens and Co

Holdens & Co. has been an integral part of village life in Edgworth since its opening in 1929. Famous for its dairy ice cream, made to the same secret recipe as it was when it started. Now, in addition to the ice cream, you can find a retail outlet, coffee shop and ice cream parlour serving breakfast, lunch & afternoon tea 7 days a week, as well as hosting evening events.

The Ice Cream:

The crowning glory of Holdens & Co. is the multi-award winning ice cream. It is still handmade on site to the original recipe and has now also evolved into a range of delicious flavours as well as the dairy classic.

The Farm Shop:

Following a full refurbishment in late 2017 the shop is now a haven of locally sourced, artisan and convenience produce. On offer is a full deli counter with a selection of the most divine meats, cheeses, pies and deli accompaniments, much of which is used in dishes served in The Hideaway coffee shop and ice cream parlour. Shelves are laden with beautiful quality jams, chutneys, biscuits, spices, wines, spirits, chocolates, store cupboard essentials, fruit and veg, pick n mix, breads, cereals, cards and gifts. Hampers can be made to order for the perfect bespoke foodie gifts for your loved ones. You can treat yourself to the picture perfect selection of handmade cakes, bakes and tarts in the patisserie counter whether you sit in to enjoy with a coffee or take away to indulge at home.

The Hideaway Coffee Shop & Ice Cream Parlour:

Tucked away in the back of the shop is a light and airy dining area with a cosy farmhouse feel. Sit in from 9:00am til 4:00pm 7 days a week and enjoy great quality casual dishes prepared to order using seasonal produce and classic homely recipes.

The Hideaway is the ideal space for families coming for a trip out to enjoy lunch followed by ice cream specials, it’s a lovely stop on a cycling or running route around the rolling Lancashire hills where we sit. Likewise if you’re looking for unusual and artisan foodie produce and a lovely bottle of wine or quirky gin and tonic it’s perfect. Team it with a walk around one of the three local reservoirs and spots of natural beauty for a really lovely day out.
