Beautiful gardens and well stocked gift shop. Staff were helpful in identifying different oils and lotions. Worth a visit if you have some time to kill in Kaikoura!

The lavender farm in Kaikoura is a must do for everything there is a big variety of different lavender to smell and observe. You cab also stay there. There is also a cafe and a beautiful shop make sure you buy something. The staff are very lovely and friendly and great to talk to.

We went after a morning at the seals, lovely drive down to the farm. Very cute and has some great products. We bought she bath salt and can't wait to try it! Also it smells so yummy in there.

This lavender farm is a low-key pleasant place to wander around. In addition to some small lavender fields, there are sheep and chickens in an enclosure. A small gift shop sells lavender-themed items. We spent awhile drinking lavender tea, enjoying the peace and quiet.

I went to the Lavender Farm today with the view of walking through the lavender and made the apparent mistake of driving my camper in. I parked it in the most appropriate place for it and got out to check dimensions etc and was ready to move it elsewhere when the manager burst out the door and yelled at me... More

We visited this beautiful farm in February 2011 (just before the Christchurch earthquake). One of the more interesting spots on this planet. Two separate cottages, one with outdoor spa and the other with indoor spa. We rented the one with indoor spa. An outstanding rooftop bed with a view to the stars. Breakfast with eggs and home-made bread etc.

Had planned to visit for less than an hour, but we ended up staying here for almost 3 hours, shopping lavender stuff, smelling the flowers, taking photos and trying the lavender ice-cream! The gardens were beautiful and the smell of lavender is amazing and so relaxing, no wonder time flew past us when we were here.. We setup our own... More
