Hill Barn Farm Cottage, Snowshill WR12 7JY
If you are looking for the perfect place for a picnic in the Cotswolds, look no further than the Cotswold lavender fields.
Located on the edge of Snowhill, near the National Trust’s Snowhill Manor and Gardens, the farm is a beautiful way to spend an afternoon in the summer months.
With over 40 types and 140-mile rows of lavender, it’s a gardener’s paradise.
The Cotswold lavender fields are open from 15th June until Sunday 7th August in 2022 between 10am -5pm.
This is the prime time for Cotswolds lavender which will be in full bloom along with the chamomile field too.
The lavender is at its peak in the middle to the end of July. This is when the harvest of lavender starts.
When you arrive at the Cotswold Lavender Farm you will be greeted by the most incredible scene.
As well as walking and photographing the lavender fields, dogs on leads are allowed to visit too.
You can make the most of your experience by bringing a picnic and sitting amongst the lavender and wildflowers.
Situated on the edge of the lavender fields is a kiosk selling drinks and snacks. There is the chance to buy lavender too.
You can also purchase lavender oils, creams, skincare, teas, sugar and chocolate!
Once the harvest begins, the distilling of both the lavender and chamomile happens.
If you are visiting during this time, you will be allowed to visit the lavender distillery over the two weeks of harvest.
The harvesting of the lavender is naturally the busiest time to visit, however arguably the best.
Cotswold Lavender Farm is two miles south of the village of Broadway.
There are brown tourist attraction signs surrounding the farm, however, if you use a Sat Nav, it will deliver you to the gates of the farm.
There is a one-way system in operation and if you are travelling by car you will need some change for the car park.
If you are travelling by train, you will need to depart at Moreton in Marsh. You will need to grab a taxi, but they will be in high demand, so pre-booking is essential!
Manor Cottages has over 350 self-catering cottages peppered across the Cotswolds.
For the perfect driving distance to the Cotswolds Lavender Farm, book a stay in a cosy cottage in Broadway.
