Established in 2000 on a farm that's been in the family for three generations, Cotswold Lavender grows and distills lavender for its range of yummy lavender gifts and English Lavender Essential Oils.
There are more than 35 varieties grown including white and pink, the famous deep purple Hidcote Lavender and English Lavender – Lavandula Augustifolia. During flowering time you can wander through the lavender fields around the distillery for a close-up look at the different types.
In the summer flowering season (from mid June), enjoy lavender scones and yummy lavender shortbread at the tea room, open for coffee, light lunches and afternoon teas. The shop sells all-things-lavender including Culinary Lavender Sugar, Lavender Essence, Lavender Grains and Lavender Tea Bags.
Gardeners look for the Gardeners Muscle Rub among the many temptations on offer here.
