Overview

We're a family owned and run farm. During the summer months (check the website for precise dates)we're open to visitors who are able to wander up and down the miles of lavender rows we grow. We also have a small gift shop and offer light refreshments too. Coach groups or large parties are only possible by prior booking. Hope to see you soon!

Able to walk along the rows of Lavender, pick your own and fill the provided bag in a lovely setting with nice views. Great tea, coffee and cakes available in the barn, a small shop and museum to browse. A nice morning out.

I visited last Sunday as the fields were just starting to colour upwards towards the hill. We had tea and cake from the cafe there and chatted with family I hadn't seen for ages. The food was nice and the outdoor seating plenty. Car par...More

A really beautiful site with fields of lavender to pick as well as nursery beds with a huge range of varieties displayed. There is a lovely tea shop and shop selling starter plants for your own garden

Visited on open day. Shame that lavender wasnt out yet but gift shop and coffee shop well worth a visit. Well stocked gift shop with local products and coffee shop had good range of food and unusual cakes. Service was speedy and very pleasant staff

My favourite of all the major lavender fields I’ve visited so far. The best part is that they let you pick your own flowers for £4. It is the case of pick till your back can’t cope any longer, but the bag of lavender still...More

This is only a short drive from Hitchin Town. Great place to go for an afternoon tea; I am biased because I love the smell of lavender. Have a small range of lavender products, a side room that gives a little of the history along...More
