A Trip to Wolds Way Lavender
The weather was good so for a fun family day we decided to visit Wolds Way Lavender at Wintringham, just a 20 minute drive from Granary Holidays. My 10 year old son “wasn’t bothered” about going! I was fairly confident their would be something there he would enjoyed, having checked the website Wolds Way Lavender and it being a few years since my last visit.
On arrival we parked for free in the car park, then made our way in to the shop, Cafe and plant sale area. You only pay an admission if you want to go out in to the Lavender fields, which we did. Paying £6.50 in total for an adult, a concession (Grandma) and a child I thought that was more than reasonable. You can also pay an extra £2.00 per person to ride on the miniature train.
Raised Lavender Beds
We walked out of the cafe area, to the outside eating area through the gate towards the lavender fields, going through the raised Lavender Beds. The beds were all labelled making it easy to identify which lavender we were looking at. Useful if you are going to purchase some plants.
Once out in the lavender field area there is lots to see and do. First you come to the Distillery and Cooling Ponds, raised herb beds, mixed lavender displays, raised viewing platform, Train Station for the mini railway, and the Diamond Jubilee Walk. This walk also takes you to the nature pond, and wild flower meadow.
There is a nature walk right round the edge of the 12 acre site, with information along the way of wildlife which you might see. This also takes you to the timber trail play park, a chance to sit down whilst the children play.
Giant Games Maze
Within the maze you will find some giant outdoor games which include Nine Mens Morris, Hop Scotch, Rings, Quoites, Chess, Draughts, Noughts and Crosses, Tumble Towers, Ringing the Deer, Labyrinth, 4 in a row.
It was then time for a tea and cake break, the cakes were delicious and sitting outside in the sunshine, we could smell the lavender. We had a great afternoon at the lavender farm and will be returning again.
