Hitchin Lavender At Cadwell Farm
Another gorgeous week here in London and the start of the school holidays. It doesn’t matter how old I get this still feels like the start of Summer proper, the days feel quieter, longer and more relaxed. So here I am thinking about days out with a picnic in tow.
A couple of weeks ago on invitation from Annie at Manneskjur I met up with a group of blogging friends at Hitchin Lavender in Ickleford for a long lunch and a bit of nature. We were a little early in the season to see the fields fully in bloom but were still greeted by sights one might normally associate with Provence. Right about now it should perfect.
If you’re looking after children this week and want to do something that’s fun for them but doesn’t step too far away from your gardening passions then this would make a super day out. It’s also a great spot if your keen on photography, with plenty of butterflies, bees and wild flowers to shoot.
All the information about Hitchin Lavender can be found here.
Admission is currently £4.00 per adult and free for children under fourteen. You will also be given a brown paper carrier bag and some scissors to cut your lavender.
There is a very nice cafe and gift shop and a large picnic area in the fields with a beautiful gazebo if you need some shade.
