Add Mrs Dowsons Ice Cream to your Itinerary

The famous Mrs Dowsons Ice cream, served in multicoloured sprinkled cone.

From humble beginnings in 2001 when they created the first few pots of vanilla ice cream on the family farm, Mrs Dowsons have been focused on creating a quality product with honest ingredients. 

The approach is based on using ‘the real thing’ instead of artificial flavourings to create a product that tastes great.

At Mrs Dowsons, award winning ice cream is made, the Dowson way, using fresh milk from the farm dairy.  Although the ice cream kitchen is off limits due to top secret recipes, you can treat your little farmers to a fresh and delicious pot or cone in the ice cream parlour.  A variety of exciting flavours are available. 

Mrs Dowsons Ice Cream is also available in outlets across the north west.
