Lavender Season has arrived at Castle Farm!

July has arrived.. and that means one thing.. Lavender! Our fields are slowly turning their wonderful shades of purple and the scent is filling the valley... For 2020, In order to ensure our visitor and team safety, with social distancing in place, Lavender field access is only available with tickets pre-booked online. Limited numbers of tickets will be on sale for each session, and we hope you will be able to enjoy the calming Lavender rows, in a relaxing environment.

Tickets will be released at the beginning of each week for the week ahead, once we have an appreciation for the weather forecast (there is no wet weather cover in the fields!). There will be two options;

LAVENDER WALKS: Enjoy 45 minutes strolling through our most famous field with the Lavender bench. Take a photo, enjoy the calming scent and walk to the top of the field to take in the spectacular views of the valley. £4 per adult.

LAVENDER PICNICS: Enjoy 2 hours access to sit or stroll in one of our beautiful fields with views across the valley. Bring a rug and some chairs, and relax with a BYO picnic and drinks. Wander through the rows of fragrant flowers with friends and family. £10 per adult.

All events must be pre-booked via our website. Please note that this year our Lavender fields are slower to flower, due to a late frost in May. The colour will continue to deepen throughout July until we harvest for the precious oil at the end of the month.


Want to experience one of the prettiest drive thru’s around?! Our Farm Shop has been reimagined for the summer, and you can shop from the comfort and safety of your car.. whilst still enjoying the views and the scent of the valley. Download shopping lists online to prepare what you want to collect, and then just order and pay once you get to the farm. We have lots of lovely Kent Strawberries, cherries, locally baked cakes, sweet treats, and of course our Lavender products and gifts.
