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!

A really beautiful place to visit for lunch, hot drink, cakes. The children really enjoyed filling their bags with lavender. It has a nice little gift shop in an old barn. Worth a visit

A wonderful non tech visit,charming staff excellent cream teas. Can thoroughly recommend.The Lavender fields are a throw back in time when people came first . They have achieved a tourist attraction without the gaudy stuff that seems to prevail these days.

This field is a gem of Hitchin and is insanely popular with Asian tourists for some reasons, even though there are other lavender fields around London, even within M25. I reckon, it is conveniently located on the way to Cambridge. For £5 you get scissors...More

To pick your own lavender was a real treat and then to find the lovely cafe was a bonus. It's a place we would go backto just for a coffee or lunch

I have lived in the area for nearly 20 years but I'm ashamed to say I hadn't visited Hitchin Lavender until this year. Spent a lovely couple of hours picking Lavender in the sun. The only downside was that it was extremely busy so I...More

obviously the best time to go is when the lavender is in bloom or you won't get the full beauty of the lavender fields and scent. Best to ring ahead to find out, usually summer months, however, it is a nice place to stop for... More
