April 2023 Update
We've had a fair few enquiries about when the lavender field will be opening, so we thought we'd give a little update...
This is more to say that there isn't really an update on when the lavender will be opening yet!
As it's been a very cold and wet spring so far, and it's the first year of the lavender field (so we have to wait for the last frost before we can plant them out in the field), we don't yet know when it will be open!
There are so many factors at play, so please bare with us, follow us on social media and join our mailing list, and when we have a clearer picture of when we will open our gates again for 2023, we will let you know!
The Sunflower Experience and Summer Pick Your Own
5 acres. 30,000+ sunflowers.

We will be open daily from 9.30am - 5pm from Friday 14th October until the 31st October.

In the event that we sell out of pumpkins before the 31st, then we will close, as we only sell what we grow. But as we have circa 40,000 pumpkins, squashes and gourds, it is unlikely that we will sell out.
