Taking a trip to Somerset’s Lavender Farm

I’m a big believer in using the internet to find new places to visit and when I saw a follower on my instagram account post pictures from Somerset Lavender Farm, I knew I had to go.

Luckily, I was due a trip back to the West County for my cousin’s birthday so we decided to spend our Sunday morning by going for a drive in search of the beautiful fields.

And after around 40 minutes driving through country lanes while listening to the music of Dolly Parton, we did in fact find the amazing lavender fields.

Having seen a good number of photos posted online, I was certain I was going to be elbowing people out of the way to get my own picture but we only shared the field with around 5 other people.

And thanks to the sheer size of the area, we managed to all find our own patches.

Entrance to the fields are free but there is a donation box for those who want to say thanks – and why wouldn’t you, these fields are beautiful!

While we were there, it began to rain so we ran over to the wooden hut which also is a coffee shop and had a quick drink and a snack while the rain went off.

I had literally the best toffee cake I have ever eaten along with a small teapot of fresh mint tea. Nothing better than fresh mint tea while sat in the middle of a farm.

After spending some more time wandering around and taking pictures, we called it a day and headed out. But it reminded me that there are so many things to see and do on my doorstep and even though work is hectic, there is always something fun and interesting to do a short drive away.

Somerset Lavender Farm have a website giving you directions and opening times. Generally, the farm is open from May through September from 10am – 5pm.
