Lavender Season

ALL THE DETAILS TO PLAN YOUR VISIT TO CASTLE FARM LAVENDER

We look forward to welcoming you to Castle Farm

The Lavender fields at Castle Farm start to bloom in late June, and are harvested for precious aromatherepy oil in late July. Tickets for our Lavender Field events for 2022 will go on sale in late June, this year we will be offering the choice of three events - Lavender Walk Field Access, Lavender Picnics and Guided Lavender Tours. Tickets do not go on sale earlier than this because the flowering date of the lavender can vary depending on the weather in early summer! Keep up to date on our social media, or sign up to our newsletter (at the bottom of this page). We look forward to welcoming you to Castle Farm soon!
