    Lavender Season 2020

    ALL THE DETAILS TO PLAN YOUR VISIT TO CASTLE FARM LAVENDER

    Welcome from the team at Castle Farm

    Lavender Season has now finished for 2020! A huge thank you from the whole team at Castle Farm for making us a part of your post-lockdown adventures! We would love to see all of your lovely pictures so do tag us on Facebook and Instagram when posting. To all those that struggled to make it down this year we hope to welcome you to the purple valley in 2021. Keep Safe and stay tuned to our VISIT US page for Autumn events including our very popular 'Pick Your Own' Apple Orchard.

    The Farm Shop

    Our Farm Shop - The Hop Shop – is currently operating as a pretty little Farm Shop Drive Thru. You can download our drive thru brochure, and handy shopping lists to browse all of the wonderful local products on offer. You can then drive to the farm to place and collect your order – all from the comfort and safety of your vehicle.

    You will be able to see the freshly harvested fields from your vehicle, and enjoy the relaxing scent of our distillery in the air, whilst collecting seasonal produce, Lavender products, fresh bunches, Lavender plants, decorations and some of our farm shop favourites.

    Castle Farm has been turned into a one-way system to deliver this offering – with entry only from the A225. There will be no foot traffic allowed within the farm gates.

    Castle Farm Drive Thru Shop opening times:
    Open Wednesday - Sunday from 10am - 5pm

    VISITING THE LAVENDER FIELDS

    This year, in order to maintain social distancing measures and the comfort of our visitors and team, access to the Lavender Fields was by pre booked tickets only. These book-able events are now both finished as our Lavender Harvest is underway!

    LAVENDER WALKS

    Our Lavender Walks are now FINISHED for 2020. We hope you enjoyed a stroll in our most iconic valley field and we can't wait to see many of you next year.

    LAVENDER PICNICS

    All of our Lavender Picnics are now FINISHED for 2020. Our lovely Lavender Picnic field has been harvested for its precious Ladybird Oil. Thank you to all visitors of our Lavender Picnics, we hope you enjoyed the event!

    Castle Farm Footpath Kiosk For Walkers

    Currently only open on weekends, on the Darenth Valley footpath behind Castle Farm, along from the Lullingstone Visitor Centre.

    When our fields are in flower it is likely that we will open this kiosk point daily. The Kiosk will provide cold drinks, ice creams and a limited selection of products, plus you can ask our friendly team about the Lavender fields. You can view the Lavender from the footpath, but there is no access to the Lavender in these fields.

    Lavender season car parking

    This year Car Parking on Castle Farm will only be provided for pre-booked, ticketed Picnic events and pre-booked ticketed Lavender field access.

    We have also opened up a Public Car Park on Redmans Lane if you wish to just park and view the Lavender from the footpath, or go for a walk along the Valley. Parking £2.50 per vehicle. Please park at the Lullingstone Park Visitor Centre if you require picnic facilities and toilets.
