A sea of purple
If you are unable to get to Provence to see the spectacular sight of the lavender fields this year fear not! There are many great lavender farms here in the UK that you can visit.
Here are a few that we are particularly fond of;
Cotswold Lavender Farm
This 3rd generation family farm grows both lavender and camomile. We love the variety at this farm. With them having over 40 different varieties, around 140 miles of rows and over 500,000 plants in total. Impressive or what! There is a shop and a tearoom for a delicious treat after a wander through the fields.
Address: Hill Barn Farm, Snowshill, Broadway, Worcestershire WR12 7JY
NB: they close to the public from 26th July
Somerset Lavender Farm
At this farm you will see over five acres of Lavender. You can walk through the field and absorb the sight of more than 50,000 Lavender plants with bees humming, collecting pollen to make the farm’s honey. One of our favourite things about this farm is the healing garden, packed full of useful herbs such as Thyme and Lemon Balm, Arnica and Echinacea. There is also a shop, plant nursery and cafe.
Address: Somerset Lavender, Horsepond Farm, Faulkland, Somerset, BA3 5WA
Norfolk Lavender Farm
This farm is fantastic as a day out for all the family. With their landscaped Meadow Gardens and the fascinating Animal Gardens, play park, animal garden petting barn,gift shops and garden centre, their is something for everyone. There are guided tours throughout the summer and a lovely tearoom and restaurant for when you are all done.

Closed this year sadly but pin for next year! A beautiful 60-acre hillside farm featuring lavender gardens, specialist plant shop and a sculpture park. We love the maze and play area for the kids. They maybe closed but you can still shop online.
