Enjoy our family-run lavender farm, with spectacular views and wonderful gardens. Stop off for home made refreshments and shop for fragrant lavender products made with our own produce.

Somerset Lavender

This family-run working lavender farm offers its visitors spectacular views across its lavender fields in a quiet and relaxing environment.

Visitors are invited to stroll around the garden and take in the soothing scent of lavender or to sit and admire the scenery from the rose arbour.

If you are interested in growing some lavender bushes of your own there is a selection of varieties on display in the lavender garden, indicating some of the differences in size and colour that are on offer when you consider your options. Plants are available for purchase and practical advice is on hand to help you with the care and maintenance of your lavender plant.

For those interested in the farming element, tours of the distillery are run during the harvest where you can view the machinery and learn about how we plant, harvest and distil the lavender for the essential oil. Keep an eye on our website for updates on the times and dates of the harvest tours.

Our willow run will entertain younger visitors and there is also a farm shop stocking lavender products and gifts as well as a small café serving tea, cake and light lunches.
