Lost in the World of English Lavender

The Cotswolds is an area of outstanding natural beauty. One of our favorites in the Cotswolds is the Lavender farm called the Hill Barn Farm at Snowshill. The ideal time to visit the farm is between June and August (depending on the weather) when the Lavender is in full bloom. Also do not miss to view the production of lavender oil in the distillery at the farm.

These photos are from August of last year taken using our compact digital camera and iPad. We reached the farm on a cloudy afternoon. Luckily we were able to view the farm before the showers began. Below are the pictures of various varieties of Lavender. Hope you enjoy them too..

We are great fans of the English Lavender. You can always find our home stocked with lavender soaps, lavender fragrance oils, lavender slumber spray and culinary lavender. Besides another favorite not to be missed at the farm is the lavender ice cream.
