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.

Have always wanted to visit and was lucky that all lavender in full bloom when I visited. Checked website first and also saw lavender oil in production, not much to view but amazing smell and informative storyboard. Enjoyed this so much that I returned the following day with my friend who also really enjoyed it. Followed by visit to Broadway for an ice cream!

We went there on a hot and sunny morning in July. We could smell the lavander from the carpark, it was absolutely gorgeous. The ticket was £2.50 each which is a bargain. We walked around the fields for about 2 hours but I could have spent the whole day there. The lavander field and the wild flower meadow are stunning. Unfortunately the tearoom was too busy so we couldn't try anything but we will be back next year.

You need to be quick to come here as it is only open while the lavender is flowering, but well worth the effort to find it! We arrived just as one of the field rows was being harvested and we could have followed the lovely scent from several fields away. There are lots of interesting things in the shop, not just the usual lavender scent and hand creams. The cafe was very clean and stocked all sorts of foods with a lavender theme, and we bought some culinary lavender items to try out the recipes at home.
There is a charge to walk around the fields which is a lovely experience, but you can see lots from the roadside, and of course, no charge except purchases from the shop and cafe. The staff were very helpful and informative, and we will happily call again next season. They have a good 'user friendly' website.

If ever there is a need for smellyvision this place is it. Visually stunning and the scent of lavender is so powerful. To top of the experience of walking the lavender field a smart café awaits you to ply you with lavender flavoured cake, short bread not to mention the lavender and fig flap jacks.
Must hurry if you want to experience this in 2014 as I heard the café closes on the 18th August!
Best time to see the lavender in bloom is late June,July.

The shop is well stocked and with some unusual and unexpected 'lavender' items. The downside for us was that we spent nearly £40 in the shop, but were still expected to pay £2-50 to walk round the lavender fields. We declined! Surely if you spend a 'reasonable' amount in their shop/restaurant, that should also cover the cost of walking round a field.
