*We paid for our own tickets to this attraction*


We have been to Wolds way lavender before and we really enjoyed it, but somehow the last time we were there was nearly 5 years ago. So we decided to call in and see how much it had changed. Over the years I had seen various advertising stating the place had added extra things in.


The first time we came, I really liked the idea of wandering through the maze to find a different game in various parts, and the boys loved it. This time the boys had a blast running in and out and playing games. At one point there was even a serious game of Chess taking part.


We found the footgolf really annoying and Elliot ended up picking the ball up to pop it in the hole, we have never been the best at golf anyway. Adam and Toby enjoyed it and came up with a little competition between them to see who could get the most points.

Surprisingly Elliot was really good at Foot Pool, he enjoyed himself and they all laughed as they played, which in my eyes = Great memories.


The colours are amazing with different shades dotted around all over the place and lavender has been one of my favourite smells forever.

It is a great way to spend a few hours, walking through the lavender fields, nature trail and then if you take part in the maze you can find various games in different sections. There is also a light railway you can take a ride on for an extra £2 per person. We didn’t stay all day due to the immense heat.


I think a few more games instead of repeated games in the maze would make it so much better. But either way it’s still a fun day out. Especially if you are looking for a more relaxed day.

We didn’t bother with the small train ride, again due to the heat and Elliot’s lack of coping skills in hot weather.


The shop stocks a range of fantastic gifts and they sell the most amazing massage oil that smells so good all of the products contain lavender that has been grown and distilled on site. They also have a small selection of kids toys too. The only bit that seemed different to before was the bit outside the shop which used to be a mini garden centre with a few benches to sit at the last time we came, but now it looks like it has more seating for the cafe. Which is totally understandable if the place has been getting busier over the years. However plants are still for sale near to the toilets.


I still enjoy having a walk around here and I love seeing the boys run around and play with some of the games, I have no doubt we will be back in the future. So good to have been back again and seeing and smelling all that beautiful lavender.
