5 of the Best Sunflower Fields in Yorkshire (PYO too!)

Best Sunflower Fields in Yorkshire – at the end of the summer, what could be more glorious than wandering through fields of golden sunflowers!  More and more sunflower experiences are now springing up across Yorkshire, often at farm shops where you can have a lovely lunch after your stroll.  Most are PYO too so take advantage of the opportunity to take sunflowers home with you!  Have a look at our list of suggestions of Pick your own sunflower fields in Yorkshire.


William’s Den

Castle Farm, World Hill, North Cave, HU15 2LS

We love William’s Den and love the seasonal experiences there (we have visited and reviewed in Summer and at Christmas).  Their latest fun offering is their sunflower field!  “We think nothing says summer like a golden field of sunflowers.  This year we have planted our very first crop right here at William’s Den and are delighted with the results – a healthy crop of beautiful sunflowers. 

Come and enjoy the ultimate summer experience. See the wonder of our sunflowers in full bloom, pick your own to take home and capture the memories with the stunning Yorkshire Wolds as your backdrop. 

We can’t wait to see friends & families rediscover summer together!”

The Balloon Tree – New Sunflower Fields

Stamford Bridge Rd, Gate Helmsley, York YO41 1NB

We live quite close to The Balloon Tree and have reviewed their pumpkin picking as well as lunch in their cafe. “This year Farmer Will has been experimenting with some PYO Sunflowers and as you can see, some of them have come out beautifully!
We have kept it all very natural and the word *experiment* is definitely evident in our yield.
Although the plants are not as plentiful as we’d have liked, they have attracted plenty of bees and insects which we love.  We are pleased to say that this weekend we will have Pick Your Own Sunflowers available at £1 per stem!”
