ticket and opening times
lavender field

The lavender field is NOW CLOSED, but the Lavender Cafe is open on Saturday mornings ( see page)!

We look forward to seeing all our wonderful visitors again next year in June. No pre-booking tickets are needed, except for the talks or special evening events…see below

A group talk (next summer) about the distillation, bees and much more ! in the distllation shed MUST be prebooked with Ian on 07766501209.  The talks will take place on a Wednesday, Friday , and Saturday at 11am and 2pm (20 places available at each session) during field opening dates.

 

The field entrance fee (day pass) is paid on the gate, there are no pre booked tickets needed (except for talks) so obviously some days  and times will be busier than others, but as the field is a large area , it is able to accommodate everyone.

The cafe is small though, so please allow for some delays for hot drinks at very busy times, but its worth the wait!

Unfortunately we cannot accommodate coaches.

 Opening times are:

Monday  : CLOSED

Tuesday : CLOSED

Wednesday CLOSED

Thursday CLOSED

Friday CLOSED

Saturday CLOSED

Sunday CLOSED

PLEASE NOTE WE CLOSE PROMPTLY AT 4.30 pm ( last entrance really is 3.30pm)

Please be aware this is a working field, with rabbits and moles etc, so the ground is uneven in places and in wet weather the grass maybe slippery, please wear appropriate shoes/ boots.

Children must be supervised at all times, as the lavender plants get damaged if they are jumped on! this is bad for the plants and spoils it for others too.

There are only grass paths around the field, so be aware if using a wheelchair or pushchairs, however the lavender can be viewed from all areas fairly easily, the field is a short walk from the car parking area, so should be accessible for those with limited mobility.

We share the lavender with lots of wildlife, particularly bees, so do take care, and full responsibility of yourselves if you are walking close to the lavender and touching it!

We do NOT allow picking of the lavender, but there will be lavender bunches for sale, subject to availability on the day.

Please respect the privacy of our neighbours and do not go too close to the back boundary of the field

The Lavender Cafe … please see separate page

Our pond has deepwater so please keep children under close supervision at all times . NO SWIMMING or paddling is permitted, it is for wildlife only!
