*****WARNING: LAVENDER HEAVY POST!*****
I’m sure if you have been following me on any social media outlet that you will know that I have made a couple of visits to my local lavender field in the past few weeks! It is such a lovely day out, and so cheap too. Mayfield Lavender charge just £1 per adult and children under 16 go in for free. Set over 25 acres, you can enjoy taking a leisurely stroll through the fields (or if you have a toddler a leisurely run after them!).
Oliver loved running through the rows of lavender, although he was a bit apprehensive on the thicker rows. There were bees a buzzing, which didn’t bother us at all. If anything Oliver was excited to see them! He stood pointing at them saying ‘beh’ (which is him trying to say bee). We had such a lovely time, and enjoyed trying some of their lovely food too.
And if you’re tired out after running around the fields you can re-fuel at the cafe. They have an array of lavender themed food and drink, lavender cake, lavender lemonade, I even had a lavender cheese and ham toastie! They also have a shop with a great selection of products made using their lavender.
If you live in the area I urge you to go and visit, it really is a wonder to see!
