Adventures // Yorkshire Lavender

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.

What a glorious weekend we’ve just had here in Yorkshire! The sun shone, we shunned the coats and, on Saturday, visited Honeysuckle Farm in Hornsea for the first time. We had big plans to visit Honeysuckle Farm while Nick was on paternity leave two years ago, and again last year, but we’ve never quite made it (I’m blaming sleep deprivation!), so I was quite determined that would indeed visit last Saturday. Honeysuckle Farm is just outside the seaside town of Hornsea. Set  ...
