High on the Cotswold hills overlooking Broadway is the Cotswold Lavender Farm and today – as part of our Cotswold Tour – we stopped to take a look.
This position is perfect for lavender as it thrives in the free draining limestone soil.
The sun was out almost all day and so were the tourists; this young lady was clearly overwhelmed by the stunning scenery.
We were happy to snap our happy Cotswold tourist on camera!
There are so many different types of Lavender; this farm grow over 35 different varieties. English Lavender is the most popular and likes a sunny open location in which to grow and is naturally pest resistant.
Tourists were queuing in the shop, the car park was full and many were taking a tour around the fields; admiring row after row of beautiful Cotswold Lavender.
The farm sell a wonderful range of British made products from their lavender including bath and shower products, scents for your home and fantastic gifts,
Our mystery Cotswold tourist went home happy and full of memories of dancing through the fields of lavender!
And that’s why we love doing what we do…
People take our tour to discover hidden and secret picturesque villages, they want to be catered for and pampered and they want to take in the breathtaking English countryside without the hassle of driving.
Although we welcome tourists from all over the world including America and Japan, even locals love to take the Secret Cottage tour.
How many times have you been dying to take a peek inside someone’s thatched cottage? Perhaps you’re curious about huge inglenook fireplaces. Or maybe you’ve never seen an AGA working before.
On your Secret Cottage tour you’ll get to experience all this and more.
We’d love to put a smile on your face and name you our happy Cotswold Tourist of the day!
