The site, which has recently undergone a £5m redevelopment due to demand, is the most visited free to enter family tourist attraction in the North West and has seen a significant rise in visitors in recent years.

The Ice Cream Farm, which celebrates 30 years in business this year, all began when the Fell family saw diversification opportunities for their dairy farm in the 1980s.

The record-breaking ice cream parlour now stocks a number of multi award-winning ice creams and sorbets including classic flavours such as honeycomb and sticky toffee pudding, to new-found favourites including salted caramel and bubble-gum.

Jonathan Fell, director of The Ice Cream Farm, said: “This year we are celebrating 30 years in business, which is something we are immensely proud of.

“However, to gain international recognition from a body such as Guinness World Records has left us totally speechless and bursting with pride.

“We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate our 30th anniversary.”
