Laurens Lavender - lavender farm on Forgotten World Highway, an olde-worldy charming nuance, meadering river beside it, kayaks on the river when we drove up . Great spot, cafe serving teas & coffees, decadent cakes, amidst the buzz of bees pollinating lavender. I have gait/walking challenges (stroke); I wear a legbrace. Shopped for gifts as well, after coffees with decadent cakes. We'll be back soon when lavender is blooming ..

Although the lavender harvest was over it was still lovely to sit in the grounds for a cuppa and a chill out after a long drive. The lady who welcomed us was just lovely and made us feel very happy that we'd chosen to stop by. She was just the same with all other customers and it was lovely to hear.

We had a great lunch here as part of a small group tour. The owner was friendly, the café clean and the coffee good. The setting is beautiful, adjacent to rows of lavender and immaculate gardens with different sitting areas under shade. The little shop sells all sorts of homemade lavender products. Definitely worth visiting.

We visited for our last taste of real coffee and civilisation before continuing on the river canoe journey. Friendly service, great cake/scones and coffee, clean loos, and a lovely shop. However, I think the lavender and the bees are the real attraction!

A nice little place with beautiful lavender farm, a cafe and a shop.

A short walk leads to the river - worth the effort.

Great photo opportunities!

Beautiful warm spot above the Whanganui river. The place is lovely and the food is yummy. Well worth the stop to eat, relax and take in the smell and the products. Steps down to the river and good.

This is a delight. The location, the setting, the beautiful gardens and gorgeous lavender bushes make for a wonderful place to stop. The tea and scones or muffins are excellent and the lavender products for sale entice you to spend...but you can't pass by this opportunity.
