Now who would’ve thought visiting a field full of lavender could be such fun!?
We came across this farm by chance after seeing some friends visiting we googled lavender farm and found the beautiful farm in Hitchen and just had to go!
Hitchen is about an hours drive from us but it was well worth the trip, you arrive at this farm pretty much in the middle of no where to a car park heaving with cars. We overheard the carpark attendant telling a customer that when he took the job he didn’t ever think it would be this busy. I think this concept has really taken off.
You pay 4 pound fifty and get give a large brown paper bag, pick up (borrow) some scissors and the huge field is yours. You can spend as long as you want and fill your bag with lavender that you have cut yourself. It was soon therapeutic and lovely to walk through the delicious smelling lavender and of course take many instagram worthy pictures!
You can even get married here in a marquee looking out over the fields – imagine the photos!
There was also a cafe, however as it was such a sunny day the cafe was heaving. Instead we headed to the local village and went to the pub.
We cannot wait to return next year (the farm is now closed, season is over!), and I think I might have to treat my mum to a visit, she would love it!
Enjoy the pictures!
