If you are thinking of something different to see and do while on holiday with us, why not take a trip to Yorkshire Lavender which is situated close to Castle Howard.
Their award winning Lavender farm of nearly 60 acres is set in the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with spectacular panoramic views over the Vale of York and beyond.
In their Specialist Plant Nursery they propagate and sell a huge range of unusual perinnials, grasses, alpines and wildflowers together with probably the largest selection of lavender and herb plants for sale in the North of England. If you need to ask any questions then you will be pleased to know that Julia and her knowledgeable staff are on hand to answer those questions for you.
After a walk around the Gardens, try your hand at the unique Lavender Maze, or go and see the Natural Wildflower Grassland Meadow, Wibbly Wobbly Way, Mirror Pond, or probably the largest hillside Snakes and Ladders in Yorkshire! they also have a Deer Park and Sculpture Park too!

In the licensed tea room they offer full waitress service to serve morning coffees, lunches and afternoon cream teas. Why not treat yourself to one of their famous lavender scones with jam and cream. All food and drink can be enjoyed in the outdoor seating area if the weather is fine!
After a lovely day out head on home to test out all the lovely lavender products you treated yourself too and try some of the recipes from the lavender cook book
