The best time to see the lavender

In a typical English summer the lavender fields should start to come into flower mid June, with the best time to see them early-mid July but it can differ year to year with the weather.

Please follow our FARM DIARY section for updates and photos in season. More information can also be found on FACEBOOK

We do grow our Lavender as a crop – and just like any crop we have to harvest it – unfortunately when it’s at its peak! Harvest usually starts during the last week of July and continues until early August.

Visitors can go into distillery whilst we are open, but please note, this will only be working when we actually harvest, as the lavender needs to be distilled the same day as it is cut. We cannot tell you when we are distilling in advance as we are totally reliant on the weather on the day. (Nor can we we reliably predict the weather a few days ahead, as we are often asked)

 

Our Location

Hill Barn Farm, Snowshill, Broadway, Worcestershire WR12 7JY

Cotswold Lavender is easy to find in the outskirts of the village of Snowshill. Not far from the National Trust Property Snowshill Manor.

We have brown tourist signs (which say Snowshill Lavender) giving directions from main roads in the local area.

 

 

To visit by Car:

We are 2 miles south of village of Broadway. From the centre of Broadway follow Church Street along the side of the village green. Follow that road for 1.5 miles up the hill to Snowshill. Pass Snowshill Manor on your right. At the start of the village take the first turn to the left at a fork in the road. Take the next left again and after leaving the village take the next left again. Cotswold Lavender is 300 metres ahead.

To visit by Rail:

The nearest stations are Moreton in Marsh (6 miles). We advise taking a taxi from the station to the farm. (please also remember to book a taxi to collect you as they can be in high demand) Click here for local taxi companies.
