Yorkshire Lavender is Yorkshire's Premier Triple Award-Winning Lavender Farm, Lavender Gardens and Specialist Plant Nursery set in a spectacular hillside farm of nearly 60 acres, within the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The best time to visit is June, July and August to see the lavender in full bloom. The lavender starts flowering at the end of May and the last flowers are cut at the end of August.
We have hundreds of different lavender and herbs for sale, EJ's Tea Room/Restaurant to enjoy delicious food, a Gift Shop with natural lavender and herb products, award-winning lavender gardens, deer park, sculpture park, lavender maze, and a cool set of extra large hillside snakes and ladders! So kids are not only welcomed but entertained here, as you will be too!
Our panoramic view over the Vale of York is said to be one of the best in Yorkshire so be sure to bring cameras or sketch pads to make the most of the beautiful scenery. Plus it's all just 3 miles west of Castle Howard, which is also great for exploring and can really add another dimension to your visit. Go and fill the ancient halls with the scent of lavender!
