Lordington Lavender

Lordington Lavender is the perfect place to encourage children to connect with nature. We offer FREE guided visits for Early Years and KS1 pupils that incorporate a farm tour, lavender walk and even honey tasting! Our friendly and experienced staff encourage the children to explore the world around them with all their senses, learning about where some of our food comes from as well as becoming experts on growing lavender and spotting bees!

  • Car parking
  • Coach parking
  • Covered space
  • Hand washing facilities
  • Toilets

As a working farm not usually open to the public, we have limited facilities on site. There is plenty of parking available and drinking water on tap in the lavender field. There is also one toilet, which is next to the parking area. Unfortunately, we do not currently have an accessible toilet on site. Access to the lavender field is via a steep and uneven slope which may be unsuitable for wheelchairs and some disabled visitors. We will always do everything we can to make our visits inclusive so please speak to us if you have any questions about access and we will do all we can to help.


Our guided farm visits are free of charge (limited dates available).

What we can offer

  • Growing crops and vegetables
  • Pre-visit information available
  • Risk assessment
  • Self-guided activities
  • Set programmes
  • Tailored programmes

Visits can be tailored to suit the ages and needs of the group, but a typical visit would last about two hours and include: • A tractor and trailer ride around the farm, stopping off to sample different crops such as wheat, barley or beans and learning about how they are grown and used • An activity to consolidate this learning about where some of our food comes from • A short talk about bees and why they are so important, including the opportunity to sample some Lordington honey and even try on a beekeeping suit! • A (loosely) guided walk amongst the lavender, spotting different types of bees and other minibeasts • A chance to pick and smell the lavender before looking at the essential oil it produces, learning a little about the properties of the plant and how we care for it • Some free time to run and play amongst the lavender rows • There would also be some optional time before or afterwards to enjoy a packed lunch (not provided) at our picnic benches or in our covered ‘lavender hut’
