Our Story

Nestled in the centre of Edgworth village in the heart of Lancashire, Holdens & Co.  can be found at the home we’ve kept since opening in 1929.

A family business, now run by the Cort family, Holdens & Co. cherishes its heritage whilst bringing new ideas and style to the fore.

In October 2016 Holdens & Co. opened its second site within the newly developed Kitchen Courtyard at Haigh Hall Country Park.

The ice cream remains as local and traditional as ever, with the milk coming from the same farm just up the road and the recipe for Holdens Original not changing one bit.

Now, however, to add to the joy that Holdens Original ice cream brings, the team have developed a diverse and well-loved selection of flavours which can be found at both sites as well as a selection of stockists around the North West
