Unfortunately, the date of our visit this year (the last week in August) was too late for the flowering season and the lavender was well past its best. However, the café and children's play area were both well used!

I just love this place. We are once a year to make a new photo session and have some chill out day with picnic. I love that option I can cut some fresh lavende and keep the smell at home even after it dry out....More

Excellent place to enjoy tea and cake - with lavender flavours too. The lavender products on sale are superb - I visit regularly to stock up on lavender shower gel. Fortunately I am lucky enough to live just a few miles away.

Yes. You can also visit the shop, museum and display area. You only pay to go to the picking area.

It is just professional photographers so as long as you don't turn up in your wedding cloths with 1000K of photographic equipment you are fine. I can see why they wish to limit this for the enjoyment of other visitor.
