Visiting in Lavender Season

The Lavender on Castle Farm blooms from late June to late July, when the fields turn a spectacular deep purple! We offer a number of events in the fields.. so you can choose your perfect way to expereince the fragrant beautiful rows of flowers. We recommend pre-booking all field events (as meny sell-out). Tickets will be bookable via this link below.


Walking from the station?

If you are arriving to the farm via train, you can enjoy a lovely walk from either Eynsford or Shoreham train stations. Please see our map below that will guide you to the most scenic route, and takes you along the delightful River Darenth - keeping you off the main roads as much as possible!

We love seeing dogs here on Castle Farm, but please keep pooches on a lead at all times and pick up after your dog.

Dogs are welcome in our ticketed Lavender Field Walk events. Please note, dogs are not permitted inside the farm shop itself, in our Lavender Picnic Field or on our Lavender Guided Tour events, unless a registered Guide Dog or registered Assistance Dog.

HOW TO FIND CASTLE FARM
