Great place to visit from May to September! Excellent for afternoon tea, in the lovely barn, or weather permitting outside in the sunshine! You can pick Lavender & Sunflowers in season too! A new addition is the antique Lavender shop (originally in Hitchin Town). But you can buy the homemade Lavender goods in the barn. A Lovely place to visit!

Hitchin Lavender is a working farm which has grown into a major attraction but retains its charm. The owners run a high quality cafe where you can also borrow scissors to cut yourself as much lavender as you can fit in a bag from their nearby fields. The sight of their rows of scented purple during July and August is... More

Wow what a little gem of a place, the lavender fields looked stunning in the early evening setting.

We sat outside and... More

If you can only fit in one visit then try to find out when the Lavender is at it's peek. When the weather is nice you will not see a more lovely field of Lavender locally. I often go out of my way to walk this area so I can see the changing colours throughout the year. Visit can cost... More

I came here with a few friends to pick some lavender! It was a lovely experience as I filled my bag to brim with lavender stems. We enjoyed eating in the cafe afterwards too, there was lavender lemonade, tea, lavender cakes, scones and more :).

This is a lovely place to go with the family on a good day, and of course when the lavender is in full bloom. You paye a small amount and then you can cut lavender to your hearts content. There is a cafe there and an opportunity to buy lavenders, which there are many different sorts.
