Owner description: 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

We went to visit today as its their first day opening this year and they advertised a new menu. Lavender is not out yet, we asked the lady in the tearoom and she said sadly, becasue of the weather it is late flowering this year. Not their fault. The menu was much improved, they only do light lunches now, lovely rolls which were very fresh, I had chicken and bacon, really nice and we shared a cake as were quite full, we had lavender meringue!
The shop had all the usual lavender goodies in and lots of new things , we had a lovely day, shame lavender was not out but can see its beyond their control. One thing i did notice this year, most of their food is now locally sourced so though that was nice, will defo go back when its in flower.

It was raining when we called here so we decided to avoid the fields and instead just visited the gift shop and tea rooms. Neither were very large but both were very nice and well worth the stop even if you don't want to do the tour.

My Mom and I stopped here on our way between Mickleton and Cheltenham the last weekend in September. As we got out the car we noticed a delicate lavender fragrance in the air.

Inside the tea room was a wood-burning stove which made it really cosy when stepping in from the wind. The tea rooms were spacious and quiet. The gift shop sold a good variety of their own products and other lines, all at very reasonable prices. They had an end of season 'buy one get one free' offer on lavender plants so we stocked up!

After a little mooch round the gift shop and a cup of tea we headed off on our journey feeling satisfied and relaxed. My car now smells of lavender from the plants and gifts we bought!

We will return to see the lavender in its full glory!

July is a good time of year to visit- harvesting will begin in the next couple of weeks so you now see the lavender in it's full glory.
Pleasant cafe- try the lavender scones! and a well-stocked gift shop, I bought some blueberry and lavender jam -delicious.
