Welcome to Lavenders...
Situated on the side of the beck in the heart of the village overlooking the village green, Lavenders offers a high quality Tea Room venue, where you can choose from a delicious range of locally sourced products, and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of its sumptuous, cosy interior, or watch the world go by outside on our courtyard terrace.
We offer Takeaways and Gifts with many of the products used in the tea rooms on sale to take home.
We also offer a helpful sale or hire Picnic Hamper Service where you can spoil yourself with lots of mouth-watering food and drink.
Located in Thornton le Dale, we are fortunate to be in one of the finest areas of Yorkshire offering the visitor many beautiful walks, breathtaking landscapes, and many sites of historical interest, all under the umbrella of the North York Moors National Park.
On our doorstep is the famous Dalby Forest which boasts over fifty miles of mountain bike trails and an outdoor activities centre, and is rightfully regarded as a nature lovers dream. Around the corner from the tea room is Mathewsons Classic Car and Motor Museum - check out WHAT'S ON? for the next auction dates.
All of our staff are well trained and friendly, and some possess Food Standards Agency Food Safety Training Certificates.
We are pleased to welcome dogs into our seated exterior courtyard where a bowl of water and a doggy treat will be served to them with our compliments. We regret dogs are not allowed inside
the tea room itself.
If you are enjoying a holiday here at Thornton le Dale maybe you would like to consider a day out with one of our picnic hampers.
Our hamper sale or hire service perfectly complements our Tea Rooms and Takeaway/Shop.
We have a variety of hampers on offer for you to choose from.
All we need is a date and a time and your freshly made up hamper will be waiting for you.
Exploring our wonderful surrounding countryside will certainly give you an appetite!
Pickering, the home to the North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway, is only a few minutes drive away by car, where you can park and enjoy a return ride on the historic stream train, all the way to Grosmont.
Along the 18 mile route are several stops. The first is at the picturesque village of Levisham, a perfect stop for walkers and cyclists.
Goathland station is a popular stop, as it is the home to the famous television series Heartbeat. At the end of the line at Grosmont station there is an opportunity to change and carry on by train all the way to Whitby, or take the return journey back to Pickering.
What better way then to complete a perfect day by enjoying one of our picnics freshly prepared for you and your family?
We offer numerous ideas and all our picnics come in a fully packed hamper basket or backpack, whichever you prefer, that suits your needs. We even do a special children’s teddy bear picnic basket for your child to enjoy!
With our hamper service you will receive a Voucher which will allow you to restock your hamper at a reduced price. We look forward to helping make your visit a memorable one.
