Overview

We are a third generation family farm set in the Heart of the beautiful Cotswold Hills overlooking Broadway and the Vale of Evesham. Lavender was first planted here in 2000 in fields previously used to grow wheat and barley. We produce the highest quality English Lavender Essential Oil. We now have over 35 different varieties, some 70 miles of rows, and 250,000 plants in total. Our crops are steam distilled on the farm and made into our unique lavender products, all proudly made in Great Britain.• You can walk the fields when the Lavender is in full bloom• See the harvest and Distillation when it takes place (usually end of July)• We have a Tea Room and Gift shop• The Tea Room serves light lunches, cream teas and cakes• Our Gift Shop sells our whole range of products plus much, much more. Admission to fields £3.50 adult £2.50 children (5-16 years)Under 5’s FREE Well behaved dogs on leads welcomed OPEN June to August - see our website for further details. We like to source as many locally made foods and produce for our tearoom. We are a Lavender Farm and although we do have a few plants for sale at the shop when we are open, we are NOT a Lavender Nursery and do not grow plants to sell

Google shows the place as being open. The actual website does not state they are actually closed. So I went all the way there. Wasted all that time to find them closed. So I can't properly review them.More

We are pleased we stopped here to check out the lavender. Yes, it is £3.50 to essentially walk around a field but it is absolutely beautiful and 100% worth the visit if you go to the Cotswolds..

Don't miss the cafe & its wonderful Lavender delights. We went and visited the farm last year which was great but this time just went back for the cafe. Ran out of cutlery on our visit which was a shame.

£3.50 to walk in to a field of lavender which you can see just as easily over the fence is a rip-off. This price includes a look in an empty barn which is marketed as a distillery. Make up for the rip-off by using the...More

The weather on our visit was perfect and we were able to walk through the fields of lavender. The shop was well stocked with lots of interest and the cafe had a great selection and had seating inside and out

If you like gardening and the outdoors, you will love this place. Good for photography. In the cafe I tried the lavender ice cream.... an acquired taste I would say! Opportunities to buy lavender species that are not on sale in your standard garden store.
