Fantastic fun for everyone. A photographers dream if quiet. Stunning in full bloom. If going with partner/friends(without kids) then best to go when the kids are at school if you can. Declious cream tea & plenty of parking on busy days.

Lovely to sit sipping tea surrounded by lavender fields. You can pick your own, buy some already picked or purchase a potted plant from the shop. Large range if lavender related items for sale. Good for tea, coffee, snacks and cakes. Child friendly good atmosphere.

Beautiful place.Dramatic views of lavender field.Disappointing to be charged to go in even if not picking.Price should be per group not per person..sharing a bag to fill. Cafe very pricey.

Great place to visit from May to September! Excellent for afternoon tea, in the lovely barn, or weather permitting outside in the sunshine! You can pick Lavender & Sunflowers in season too! A new addition is the antique Lavender shop (originally in Hitchin Town). But you can buy the homemade Lavender goods in the barn. A Lovely place to visit!

The sight of their rows of scented purple during July and August is... More
