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!

I love this place - the lavender fields are beautiful and I love picking the lavender and sunflowers but it's also a great place to go for coffee with friends. The cafe is excellent and there is a great outdoor space for kids to play...More

Beautiful and relaxing place. The restaurant is homemade food, very healthy, delicious, but very small portions.
