Description

Lavender farm and visitor attraction in excellent location close to the A64 York to Scarborough Road. Potential to further develop the retail business.

Description

Introduction
Wolds Way Lavender is a diversified business, established in 2002 when the current owners bought the land. The property now includes about 5 acres of lavender fields, wildflower and sculpture walk, a tearoom and gift shop, plant sales area, propagation tunnel, distillery and narrow gauge railway.

The farm opens as a visitor attraction from April to September with the peak times being July and August when tourists can walk around the lavender fields and wildflower sculpture walk, enjoy the giant games area and ride the narrow gauge railway. During August the owners process their lavender in the onsite distillery to create 100% Pure Wolds Way Lavender Essential Oil. This is then used in their unique products.

The Wolds Way Lavender brand was relaunched in 2014 when it was featured on BBC Million Dollar Intern and is ready to be promoted more widely to further develop the business. Alternatively, the property is ideally located for diversification into other business opportunities utilising the onsite tearoom and close proximity to the A64 York to Scarborough trunk road.

The owners bungalow was completed in 2008 and provides comfortable 3 bed accommodation with open plan kitchen/living and a separate sitting room.

Owners Accommodation
The property at Wolds Way Lavender is a well proportioned 3 bedroom bungalow, situated at the entrance to the site. The property has been cleverly designed to offer privacy from the business and includes a private garden.

The private residential accommodation is linked to the business via the office.

Tearoom, Shop and Retail Building
The tearoom and shop currently serve freshly prepared locally sourced food and has a well equipped professional catering kitchen.

The retail building also includes ladies, gents and disabled toilets and useful storage, packaging and staff room areas.

Outside the tearoom is the plant sales area and propagation tunnels, in the height of summer over 120 varieties of lavender are available for sale and the propagation tunnel enables staggering plants availability as required.

Distillery
Wolds Way Lavender houses the country’s only wood fired distillery which is housed in a building situated to the south of the cafe and shop. The traditional steam method is used to extract the oil and the still is suitable for distilling other products.

This building also serves as overnight accommodation for the narrow gauge railway train and includes a substantial workshop and dry store room.

The Land
The farm extends to approximately 11.7 acres, including about 10.2 acres of land to the south and west of the house and buildings.

The farm includes about 5 acres of Lavender fields sheltered by a well established woodland boundary.

The land is classified on the agricultural land maps as Grade 3 and as belonging to the Newport 1 Soil Series which are described as deep, well drained sandy and coarse loamy soils.
