Fields of lavender are the current seasonal Instagram obsession, so we decided to head to Yorkshire Lavender last weekend to explore and capture some photos of the children in a sea of purple.
Yorkshire Lavender is in Terrington, just outside of York, and is set in 60-acres of hillside. The weather was perfect, and I was surprised how quiet it was! If it had been the same day at a lavender farm in Sussex, we would have been queuing for ages to get in.
Children under 5 are free and adults were only £3 each, so it was an incredibly reasonable day out. Nick’s mum had prepared an amazing picnic, which we ate next to one of the lavender fields. It all felt very Enid Blytonesque; surrounded by butterflies and bees…
With a lavender maze, sculpture park, deer park, giant snakes and ladders game AND a playground, Yorkshire Lavender is a wonderful day out! There’s a café for lunch, snacks and ice cream, and even a little garden centre where you can buy your own lavender plants. It would be the perfect place to visit at the beginning of the summer holidays, while the lavender is still so gorgeous.
We will definitely be visiting Yorkshire Lavender again… In fact, if I could drive, we probably would have been a few more times since I took these photos!
