Overview

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 quaint little place to see the lavender growing (and some sunflowers). I would recommend not wearing flip flops or sandals, as there are obviously many bees about and a possibility of getting stung on bare skin. Fabulous views across to Hitchin and Bedfordshire. Good...More

Great day out, fantastic scenery, postcard pretty. Certainly instagrammable! For only £5 entrance fee, one gets to enjoy the stunning lavender fields, and you can even bring a few sprigs back home. There’s also a gorgeous field of sunflowers. The place opens from late May....More

lovey setting to have a stroll collect the lavender off the farm and relax with a cuppa and something to eat . The farm is also a great venue for weddings and they host other weekly monthly events

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

Hi :) The lavender may still be out but I think that the sunflowers season may be drawing to a close. But it's still worth a visit :) Enjoy. cheers

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
