Immerse yourself in the intoxicating aroma of Lavender
Every year, the lavender gardens are open until the end of July.
You can visit the lavender gardens without booking. If you would like to book a lavender garden for your photoshoot, you can contact us to book! There are two lavender gardens available for photoshoots. The lavender rows garden inside the forest and the lavender meditation garden inside the herb gardens. If you would like to take your experience to the next level, you can do a transformative meditation & mindfulness walk. Inside the lavender meditation garden, there is a butterfly sculpture. Symbolizing the beauty of change and transformation, we offer a unique written meditation guide for you to practice! The lavender meditation garden is designed to be a labyrinth, which aids to the practice of walking slowly and mindfully.

Lavender is in season for only a month, big and purple. After that, it loses its colour and we cut it and extract its intensely sweet and fragrant essential oil. We also make lavender tea bags, lavender linen and room spray, lavender flowers in organza bags to keep your closet fragrant. In our kitchen, we make our delicious and fresh lavender lemonade squash and lavender cake!
We have a special meditation guide for you to try out here too. Enjoy a mindful walk while the lavender softly brushes against your legs. Focus on your breathing and enjoy the relaxing scent of sweet lavender. Relax your eyes with the beautiful colours around you. Listen to the gentle buzz of the bees, ground yourself and feel at one with nature.
As lavender is our most precious and fragile herb, this particular garden is accessible for adults only. There are exceptions for photo shoots. Children must be accompanied by their parents at all times and they are not allowed to run inside this garden. Book a professional photoshoot with our resident photographer. Go on a tour and learn about the benefits and uses of lavender tea and essential oil with one of our staff members.

If I have my admission ticket and want to take some pictures with my friends and family in the Lavender Gardens, do I have to book?
With your admission ticket, you are free to enter the lavender gardens and take pictures for up to 30 minutes. Professional photoshoots do require hiring the gardens, as a photoshoot takes at least an hour. The lavender gardens are booked fast by many photographers. In order to have your time photoshooting without being disturbed or having a busy background, booking is required.
Is the park wheelchair accessible?
Most areas of the park are. You can go to the Woodland, the Maze, the themed Herb Gardens, the Botanicus Bistro, the Distillation Room and the Lavender Boutique Shop with a wheelchair or a pram. Unfortunately, the Lavender Gardens are not wheelchair or pram accessible due to the fact that the paths are too narrow, and the earth is not smooth. This can cause damage not only to the wheelchair but also to the lavender plants.
Can I bring my dog?
Dogs are only allowed in the maze and the woodland. Dogs are not allowed in the herb gardens or the lavender garden.
