About the garden

With spectacular views over Somerset and the soothing smell of lavender, a stroll around the gardens makes for a truly relaxing day out. Visitors can marvel at the 50,000 Lavender plants of 20 varieties and take home some of their own and other exquisite lavender-based products following a visit to the Farm shop.

Willow runs are endless fun for kids and the cafe offers delicious homemade cakes as well as light lunches. Lucky visitors may find fresh vegetables available in the shop, sourced from the Flower and Vegetable garden.

The tranquillity continues in the Healing Garden where a range of herbs flourish from Camomile, Thyme and Mint to Arnica and Echinacea.

A visit in summer is a magical experience at this family-run Lavender farm with plenty of sunflowers to delight in.

Beautiful lavender farm, not too busy on a Thursday, free to visit but with a donation box at the entrance. They have a lovely coffee shop and farm shop with lavender products, and some beautiful hanging baskets with flowers. Lemon cake was delicious, I can recommend that one! Free parking at the entrance but even being quite quiet the parking was full. The lavender fields are lovely to walk around, so beautiful and buzzing with bees.

A quiet oasis, full of lavender (obviously) beautiful gardens, wonderful cafe. Shop sells lavender based products, or you can choose from several versions of plants to take home. We sat in a shady corner, drank coffee, ate lavender ice cream and were blissful.

If you're looking for something to do on a sunny day for an hour or two this is perfect. The Somerset Lavender farm offers a couple of fields of stunning lavender and if you visit at the right time of year (end of July/early August) you'll be treated to a fantastic fields of purple. Once the lavender goes over there is a huge field of sunflowers for an alternative photo op! Aside from the fields there is a small gift shop and cafe... Unsurprisingly lavender themed. There is also a little outdoor area to buy plants and a little planted area to walk around... And that's kind of it. There is not a lot to do here so be prepared if you're coming from father afield. However there is no entry fee but there is a donation box. It's lovely on a dry day but I imagine it gets very muddy during rainy periods - probably worth wearing wellies. Everything is well organised and the cafe isn't too expensive. The entry from the main road is very narrow and can get congested easily. Worth a visit but don't expect to get a whole day out of it

I visit this wonderful family run Lavender/Sunflower fields numerous times each year between June & September you just can’t beat the sight and aroma that greets you on arrival. The well-laid out fields are lovely to walk round or just sit and take it all in especially when in full bloom. The sunflowers come out around late August/September and are equally a sight to behold. There’s also a large well-kept flower and vegetable garden I love to walk around. Plants can be bought here including pick ‘n‘ cut sunflowers for a small charge. There’s a small tea room and gift shop where you can buy lavender products. The café seating is outside with plenty of shade and views over the lavender field. The home cooked food includes savoury and sweet options including lavender tea, lavender flavoured scone’s and shortbread etc. There’s plenty of parking spaces; no charge but donations are all they ask for with a box at the gate and in the café. Note: Professional and photography groups must purchase Photography Passes. Check their website before turning up with all your equipment
