We didn't find easy to locate but once we did we were not disappointed. Had lovely chat with owner and enjoyed a lavender tea. Took some lovely photos in the lavender fields with amazing backdrop of mountains. Bought some oils which we have enjoyed.

Beautiful gardens - yes they are not exquisitely maintained, but tranquil and lovely nonetheless. All you can hear is bees buzzing and birds chirping. A number of lavender gardens, with other sweet-smelling herbs to discover around their boundaries. A large pen with chooks and roaming...More

Visited lavender farm late October with my wife and we were disappointed. The grounds and plants were not well maintained. The grass walkways needed mowing, there were weeds growing amongst and into the lavender bushes and many garden beds. Basically it looked like the grounds...More

Visited on a Saturday morning - was able to take a nice walk through the lavender gardens, but the shop was closed and could not find anyone there and no answer on the phone either.

Tried to visit twice during our short stay in Kaikoura. Gate shut and locked. No sign. No update to the website. Nobody was answering the phone. Disappointed!
