Our purpose...

‘To inspire happiness and
create memories that last a lifetime’

We are looking for people to help us bring our purpose to life.
But first a little more about us and how it would feel to work here.

Who we are:

The Ice Cream Farm has three core businesses:

The Ice Cream Farm is a fun and friendly family attraction, located in Tattenhall, near Chester.

With a range of indoor and outdoor activities for all the family including Strawberry Falls Adventure Golf, Daisy’s Garden, the Silvercone racing track and Honeycomb Canyon – Europe’s largest sand and water play – there is lots of fun to be had for all the family. Plus the world’s largest ice cream parlour with over 50 flavours to choose from. What’s not to love! That is what makes The Ice Cream Farm one of the most visited attractions of its kind in the North West and the UK. We are always on the look out for Play Hosts, Food & Beverage Hosts and Team Leaders.

The Drive In is a place to drive in, park up and chill out to enjoy an award-winning Cheshire Farm Ice Cream.

Our permanent Drive In is a first in the UK, allowing customers to stay and enjoy their ice cream from the comfort of their car in the stunning Cheshire countryside. For vacancies at The Drive-In click below

Why working for us is great…

To have so much fun, it doesn’t feel like work

We’re not like other visitor attractions. We want to go above and beyond and for it to feel different for our visitors and that’s where you come in. We want you to bring energy, a big smile, a helping hand – the drive to enthuse, excite and entertain our little visitors (and big ones too!). Don’t come to work each day, come to have fun!

Be a part of
the family

In the same way every family has its different characters and roles, we want you to be yourself. Bring your unique qualities to work every day and shine. You might be ‘The one who can make anyone laugh’ or ‘The one who always thinks of others’ or even ‘The one who can make crazy balloon animals (to entertain people in the parlour queue!)’ There is no end to your individual qualities and talents and there’s room for everyone. Because we are in this together.

Take pride in everything you do

We’re all about creating magical, unforgettable visitor experiences. We need you to be brilliant at the basics and constantly be one step ahead of what each visitor thinks, feels and needs so you can deliver the unexpected magic moments. We expect you to attend to the little details that can transform a good day into a truly memorable experience.

If that has not persuaded you, how about these?

Our People

Our people make our culture what it is and we will continue to listen to our employees and invest in their experience so they get the most out of working here.
