  • my friend and i really fancied a visit to see the purple fields. We left it a little late in the season, so not as purple as we would have liked, so when we go next time, we will go around the July ti...  more »
  • Lovely day out which could be enjoyed by all ages. (Very picturesque for instagram!) Can cut as much lavender as you like to take home. Also a nice section with different types of lavender!  more »
  • On 28th July I visited Hitchin Lavender with my two children. It's simply beautiful and good value for money. Included in the price is entrance and you can also cut your own Lavender. I believe the su...  more »

  • Enjoyed our visit very much. It's great to arrive early, shortly after it opens. We get there about 10:20am and there were a few families already present. The atmosphere is nice and chilled. The cafe is nice with variety of meals and drinks. Beautiful barn. You pay £5 and get a bag and some scissors to cut as much lavender desired. Professional photography allowed at no cost. We found there weren't too many obstructions in shots which was perfect. The sunflower field was beautiful also, though I'd highly recommend visiting this place around early July. If you visit, try some of the cakes. They are delicious. Great for families with kids. It's an experience.
  • A vast farm growing Lavender shrubs and Sunflower plants. People visit these farms in summer season to collect lavender and sunflowers for taking home on payment of price. A entry fee is charged and every visitor is given a scissor and a envelop to cut the flowers of your choice and collect in the paper bag. on exit you have to pay the charges for your sunflower pickings only.
  • If you like lavender, you'll love this place. Lavender blooms June to August with peak in mid-July; in August you also have the sunflowers here. Entrance is £5 per adult which includes a paper bag you can fill with lavender. Unless you really want the lavender, this may feel a little steep, and there is no 'no-cutting' option for adults. Children are £1 each. You can see the smaller exhibition field of lavender for free and also visit the shop where you should try the lavender ice cream.
  • 1 star for toilet access and traffic management. 4 stars for a nice place to visit. On a sunny Sunday this place can get really busy. They haven't quite sorted traffic or cafe management to make this enjoyable for this many people. They could also do with more toilet facilities. We didn't get to use them at all. I would still return during the week when it is quieter and they do hot food. It's a nice visit with children or a general stroll and a nice place to take pictures. They also had half an ikea bag of scissors so no worries about running out.
  • The smell and the experience are absolutely delightful. I still dream of being here even two months later. Thank goodness I still have some lavender and camomile essential oil but I don't know what I'll do once it's done. I live in Canada.
