  • This is hidden off the road in Ickleford,which is a shame. I think it should be better advertised as it is a really lovely and they sell unusual things and the coffee shop is a must!  more »
  • Especially good when the lavender & sunflowers are in full bloom & you can self pick. Nice barn cafe ( great cake) & shop. Always space to park.  more »
  • I have visited the lavender farm many times as I often walk my dog nearby. I have brought lots of different friends for tea and cake. The tea rooms are really lovely with great cakes to choose from. O...  more »

  • A good place to visit with friends or family. Has a vast plot of land growing lavender and sunflowers. You get a paper bag to bring back lavenders with an entrance fee of £4.50. Sunflowers cost an extra. Has a small cafe with lavender products, cakes and drinks. Quite a distance from central London.
  • So peaceful being amongst the lavender. Picking your own to bring home. The sun was out which made it even better. There is a shop & cafe there. Nice to take your own picnic & have in the teepees. Quite busy in the shop/cafe but was there during the school holidays. This didn't spoil the effect of the place at all. Smell was beautiful.
  • Amazing sunflower and lavender field. The staffs are really helpful, you can contact them prior to planning your visit to make sure if the flowers are blooming when you are there. The food is okay but the picnic area is not as I expected (I thought we can picnic at the field surrounded by flowers). The place is easy to reach by taxi from the station (£8 each way) and don't forget to ask for the taxi's phone number to pick you up back to the station.
  • Stunning! Follow them on Twitter to find out when the fields are in full bloom. Don't worry about the crowds. We went when it was really busy, yet it didn't ruin the experience. For you entrance fee, you get a pair of scissors and a bag you can fill up with snippings. There's a cafe on site, though it gets really busy at peak times and there's no hot food on weekends.
  • Like many farmers, they're rip off merchants. £4.50 to get in and they didn't even have scissors. You had to find someone leaving to get a pair off of them. The whole business is set around pruning on their behalf but fortunately a lot of people don't cut from the edge of the rows but rather on top. The shop itself is a colossal rip off. £8 for a tiny bottle of lavender handwash. Similar price for a dinky little lavender plant that would cost 99p in a nursery. Poor parking facilities and two way traffic route which is not at all suitable for 2 cars side by side. While the edges of the field has been over pruned and looks poor, the field as a whole looks beautiful. Still though, it doesn't justify the prices, the poor traffic management and the lack of equipment to take cuttings. Final note. To add to the greed, any "professional photographers" must pay £50 and can only visit by appointment. In other words... Greedy farmers that make far too much for a tiny amount of work, don't want anyone else making money out of their field by taking a picture, all because of the profession.
