Do you have free parking?

We do. We have ample parking available at no cost. 

How do I get to Yorkshire Lavender?

We are situated in a rural location in the Howardian Hills so access to us can be a little difficult by public transport. 

If you're not driving to us, you can get to us on the No.182 bus from Malton to Foston or by booking a taxi direct. 

What can I use lavender for?

Lavender has a range of benefits, from relaxation to skin care. You can even enjoy it in your food!

Adding a few drops of 100% pure lavender essential oil to a carrier oil (like Jojoba) can be a great step in your skincare ritual, helping smooth fine lines. The antibacterial properties of lavender also help to heal wounds and burns, soothe irritation and promote healthy skin. 

Lavender oil can also be used to encourage hair growth, promote sleep and calm anxiety. Why not explore some of our products, made using our very own 100% pure essential lavender oil. 

Can I bring a picnic?

Yes, absolutely! You're welcome to bring your own picnic to enjoy in the gardens. If you don't want to go to the trouble, why not pre-book one of our picnics or afternoon teas to enjoy during your visit.

We want everyone to enjoy their visit. Here's our information about accessibility to help you plan your trip.
