Set within ½ mile from the Wolds Way Walk, surrounded by mature woodland, on the northern edge of the picturesque Yorkshire Wolds. Wolds Way Lavender and Herb Farm is a wonderful and relaxing place to visit. The family run 12 acre site is currently planted with over six acres of lavender ranging from rich hues of purple to the purest white. A large 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. Along the borders wild flowers abound adding to the colour as does the abundance of wildlife that has made the site their home. 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.
The only Lavender Distillery in the Country to be wood fired, as in the days of old! The lavender oil extracted is the core to a new 'Wolds Way Lavender Cosmetic' range of over twenty products from hand creams to shampoos and facial scrubs. The pure oil is available for aromatherapy.
An audio visual of our Unique Distillery runs throughout the day showing how it works and how the lavender fields look during the harvest. Also unique to the distillery is our narrow gauge railway that is used to transport the lavender from the fields to the distillery. A fantastic amount of new landscaping has been carried out making an incredible impact to an already impressive site.
Take a stroll on the Wild Flower Sculpture Walk to see the abundance of wild fowers and different grass varieties. Different sculptures are added along the path as and when they are created! It never ceases to amaze, how many different varieties of wild flowers can be found on the site at different times of the year.
Sold in the Farm Shop & Visit York Visitor Information Gift Shop, Wold's Way Lavender products are made with our 100% pure Wolds Way Lavender Essential Oil that we distill here on site from our Lavender.
