Yorkshire Lavender

Yorkshire Lavender is a hillside farm near to the village on Terrington in North Yorkshire, covering 60 acres of gorgeous gardens and lavender fields.

The lavender maze has an impressive amount of lavender bushes, all tightly packed together in a sea of purple with paths running between the flowers for you to follow and find your way to the middle. Once we’d reached the centre and found our way back out again, my coat smelled really strongly of lavender which was nice! The bees particularly liked the lavender and there were lots buzzing about as we walked round.

Admission to the gardens is £3.50 for adults, £2.00 for children, although they are free to visit in March, April and September when the lavender isn’t fully out. The best time to visit is during the summer months. Admission to the shop, nursery and tea-room are free. In the tea-room we both got a pot of tea, but decided to get a lavender scone to share because I wasn’t sure I would like it. The scones weren’t too perfumed at all like I had expected – delicious scones with just a hint of lavender, I even bought some to take home.
