Lavender update – 18/06/18
The lavender is greening up nicely and the flower heads are starting to form. The purple haze has started in the more sheltered areas! It will be a week or so before we can say the lavender is fully out. – Looking good!
We will be closed all day on Saturday 30th June 2018 for a family wedding!
Set within ½ mile from the Wolds Way Walk, surrounded by mature woodland, on the edge of the picturesque Yorkshire Wolds. Wolds Way lavender it is a wonderful and relaxing place to visit. Our family run 12 acre site is currently planted with over five acres of Lavender ranging from rich hues of purple to the purest white.
An area of the Farm has been made accessible for the disabled; raised Lavender and Herb beds make perfect viewing for all. There are over 120 different types of Lavenders and Herbs growing which, when in flower, paint an incredible splash of colour across the site.
A leisurely stroll around the site reveals the amazing differences from one variety of Lavender to another. Plenty of seats are available allowing the sights and the fragrant smells to be absorbed at a relaxing pace. The well planned and carefully thought out layout of the plants adds to the overall experience of the visit.
Along the borders in the nature walk there is an abundance of colourful wild flowers and wildlife that have made the site their home. Our new Wildflower Sculpture Walk also adds vivid colour and an interesting selection of sculptures.
Ride the Wolds Way light Railway located at Wolds Way lavender. A 7.25″ Narrow Gauge Railway serving the Lavender Distillery and passengers.
The opening of a giant games maze has been popular with visitors of all ages. Planted in willow, it is a living maze that will keep growing and developing for years to come. 2017 saw the addition of our Timber Trail Play area; can you make it all the way round without touching the ground?
2018 has seen the continued addition of family based areas for young and old alike.
We look forward to seeing you!
