Welcome to Somerset Lavender
We are open from 1 May to the end of September. Wednesday to Sunday 10 am to 5 pm and
Bank Holiday Mondays (closed Monday and Tuesday).
There is also a cafe serving coffee, tea, light lunches
and homemade cakes.
We grow and harvest lavender for its essential oil on our farm. Discover the wonders
of Lavender and enjoy the sight of the fields in full bloom. Find out how we plough,
plant, weed, harvest and distil the essential oil. Based in the village of Faulkland,
only nine miles south of Bath and six miles from Frome, Somerset Lavender is open
to visitors throughout the summer months.
Wander at will through our Lavender Garden where we trial over 20 varieties of Lavender.
Breathe in the scent and notice the differing qualities of each plant, then rest
awhile in the Rose Arbour. In the Lavender Field, see over five acres of Lavender,
walk through the field and absorb the sight of more than 50,000 Lavender plants
with bees humming, collecting pollen to make our honey.
Our healing garden is packed full of useful herbs from the commonplace to more unusual
varieties: Thyme and Lemon Balm, Arnica and Echinacea to name only a few. Sit on
our camomile seat and take in the wonderful scent. Our Lavender Garden was planted
in 2003 and the five-acre field in 2004. This year we will be planting another 5
acres of lavender, visit us in the summer to find out more.
