Description

About Somerset Lavender Farm from their website:

Wander at will through our Lavender Garden where we trial over 20 varieties of Lavender. Breathe in the scent and notice the differing qualities of each plant, then rest awhile in the Rose Arbour. In the Lavender Field, see over five acres of Lavender, walk through the field and absorb the sight of more than 50,000 Lavender plants with bees humming, collecting pollen to make our honey.

Our healing garden is packed full of useful herbs from the commonplace to more unusual varieties: Thyme and Lemon Balm, Arnica and Echinacea to name only a few. Sit on our camomile seat and take in the wonderful scent. Our Lavender Garden was planted in 2003 and the five-acre field in 2004. This year we will be planting another 5 acres of lavender, visit us in the summer to find out more.

July is a great time to plan your visit, the lavender is coming into bloom! The bloom will last around 9 weeks and we will update our Facebook page with news of the harvest. The farm, shop, plant nursery and cafe are open from Wednesday - Sunday from 10am - 5pm.

No need to book your visit, just show up! Entry to the farm is FREE! But we do ask that you could make a donation to the upkeep of the farm in one of our donation boxes, or in the shop, thank you.

The cafe is operating on a take away basis, serving hot & cold beverages, sweet treats (including delicious home made cake!), ice creams, and take away lunches.We offer photography slots outside of our opening times, so anyone who wants to organise a photo shoot, or any professionals whom want to come and take advantage of the empty fields, please enquire by sending us a message on Facebook. Please note that we do not allow professional photography shoots during our opening times, but we are happy to organise and accommodate them outside of our opening times, if you enquire.For any further information, and to shop online please visit our website.
