If it is sunny with a chance of sprinkles, Greenwoods Coffee and Ice Cream has seating that overlooks the glorious Leeds and Liverpool canal or undercover seating to brave the rain. From what was a little lockdown rescue project last year, Greenwoods is a well-loved ‘caf-van’ with plenty of delicious delights to offer. You’ll be tempted to snap a selfie with your favourite scoop in the wildflower meadows surrounding you. Located on Red Lane, Colne, whether you are mid-trek in your walking boots or just fancy a drive up, there is an ice cream for everyone.
Alice Edmondson and her four team members, Becky, Amy, Tabitha and Lola run the new venture every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday every week 9.30am to 4.30pm. Not only do they sell ice cream and coffee, but they have a new range of bites that has inspired Alice to create locally sourced hot and cold food menus. From scrumptious bacon, brie, and cranberry paninis to breakfast boxes and steak burgers, Greenwoods prepare tastes to suit everyone’s cravings. If you have a sweet tooth, they offer an enormous variety of treats from brownies, shortbread, and old school sprinkle sponges!
There are five ice cream flavours to try. Each weekend Greenwoods introduce two your mouth water. Vegan and dairy alternatives have been introduced so that everybody can try their ice cream, and nobody feels left out. They really are the cream of the crop.
Initially, Greenwoods only sold ice cream, coffee, and cake, but as lockdown came to an end and other businesses started to reopen, Alice decided it was time to buy a bigger trailer to help the business keep going. Six months before the coronavirus hit, the couple, along with their two children Lily and Thomas had been living in a static caravan and saving up for a farm as they both come from farming families.
Barely a year after its launch, Greenwoods has a new trailer twice the size of the previous one and Alice has no intention of sitting behind a desk again…
Greenwoods celebrates its first anniversary in August, so make sure to get yourselves down to celebrate with their bubble gum ice cream or a chocolate orange cake slice.
