‪Lavender every way you like - bit of room for improvement‬
بمفردك • سبتمبر 2021
‪Entered randomly after seeing a
sign for car park - said hi to docile horse in stable and confirmed I was in right place with a blonde girl (perhaps stable-hand), who pointed me through farmyard to open space. Paid £4 entry and given a paper bag to collect lavender (for free this time of year, since they were harvesting - sunflowers were £1 each).

Walked past shop and cafe, to food-truck and ordered Parmesan chips with truffle oil, garlic mayonnaise and parsley, for £6.50. Took five minutes or so for them to be done. In retrospect, I wish they had taken a bit longer. My criticism - the chips would have been more enjoyable if a bit more fried, with more Parmesan, more trufflely oil (or perhaps just more oil), more mayo, more garlic in the mayo, and perhaps more parsley. Basically, that dish should have been wonderful, and they let none of the core ingredients sing loudly enough to really warrant inclusion. And for £6.50 from a food truck, there’s no excuse. Easily remedied.

Wandered through big open lavender fields, picking fist-worth of lavender heads, then wandered over to sunflower section - many of the sf heads were huge, with an abundance of wet seeds.

Headed back to the shop, and got a lavender Alfajor (this is why I heard of the farm, through Jennifer Earle’s reference on IG yesterday), some peach and lavender jam, and lavenda essential oil. The guy serving me was very enthusiastic about my choices (or perhaps he’s like that anyway, which is fine and uplifting). I asked about the spirits in the shop, and took interest in a citrus, honey and lavender gin. It was £30, I believe, and said I would have had a shot if that had been on offer. Might be worth cracking open a bottle to help sell them?

Then made way to the cafe cabin, where I got some lemon and lavender cake, and a honey and lavender ice-cream. The former was nice - perhaps needed amping up a bit with lemon zest and lavender. The latter was very nice - the ingredients were very embedded in the creamy dairy experience - could have done with more flavour, but was enjoyable as it was - a subtle ice-cream. I’d recommend using the citrus spirit (assuming it is amazing) to make a sorbet. The girl who served me said that they use all the lavender onsite for production of different things.

I applaud their creativity and suspect that the place could do with more promotion. Am from Cambridge, and never heard of it before. Flyers in Cambridge Cheese Company, Culinaris and all the farm shops around Cambridge might help spread the word. See my FB group ‘Food in Cambridge and surrounds’ for comprehensive list.

That was it. There were toilets on the site, which were only partially open. It felt like a mini-festival experience - the staff were all young - and saw that they do open-air screenings.

As I cycled off, I wondered if they did anything with the left-over sunflower seeds. A locally-pressed oil?‬

‪Vastly overpriced‬
الأصدقاء • أغسطس 2021
‪Vastly overpriced. Paid just under £43 for entry for family of 5. For what? To walk between some rows of scratchy bushes. Only went as was wife’s birthday and it what she said she wanted to do. The experience was underwhelming. If the initial feeling of having been ripped off, wasn’t enough, there was an extra charge for picking any lavender. The prices in the gift shop and cafe were astronomical. Their honey and lavender ice cream, though expensive, was delicious. The ice cream solely causes me to up my review to 2 stars.‬

‪A romantic day out‬
زوجان • أغسطس 2021
‪It is not the season of lavender, but the field still looks amazing. Picking lavender is free as they are about to die out. The sunflowers are blooming brightly at the other side of the farm.‬

‪Terrible food and really filthy toilets‬
العائلة • أغسطس 2021
‪Food and toilets a disgrace !! Toilets were filthy no taps available or soap just thin hand sanitizer. Food absolutely awful and a total rip off apart from hot chips avoid sandwiches with no filling and hot dogs in hard rolls. What a shame as flowers beautiful !!‬

‪The flowers were beautiful but the food prices were absolutely shocking and the toilet facilities grossly inadequate. Disappointing for the price.‬

‪A peaceful place with catering!‬
العائلة • أغسطس 2021
‪I think I may have reviewed here before a few years ago. Goodness what a change..
A beautiful lavender field remains but there is also now catering, sunflowers, opportunity for outdoor cinema and also a shop. A tourist attraction that has really grown. For us the catering was also great as a range of vegan foods available. We picked some lavender and spent some time in the afternoon making lavender wands, lavender bags and flower display.‬

‪Bring your own food and seating unless you want to wait for ages.‬
العائلة • أغسطس 2021
‪Not as purple as the pictures, perhaps a bit past its best now? The sunflower field was open and they were starting to bloom but not fully just yet. The queues for food and the toilets were horrendous. I HIGHLY recommend bringing your own food as it's a very long wait and you spend at least an hour waiting in total. Definitely not limited numbers, there were well over 100 people in there. Only 1 toilet working which is disgusting! Expect to queue for 20-30 mins to be able to use it. Awful if you're caught short.
Only 1 play on tractor which is unfortunately hogged by the same kids when other little ones want a turn, no other play area nearby. Food was very expensive, over £25 just for a piece of cake each between 4 people (but it was nice). Lots sold out and had closed by 2pm so we got some just in time. Not much seating at all so bring a picnic blanket if you can. The picking bag charge is a bit of a rip off considering ticket prices aren't cheap either, a lot of people just picked and put it in their own bags. Nice to see lots of dogs there but unfortunate for the kids that there's nothing else to do...toilet situation seriously needs sorting as that's not on, especially with young children.‬

‪Not that great!‬
العائلة • أغسطس 2021
‪Not very happy with our experience.
Older children hogged the only play on tractor so little ones couldn’t enjoy it.
Lavender field was lovely.
Dogs were left tied up on picnic benches unsupervised and this is concerning as children are running around and could easily get bitten.
Expensive for what it is, especially the hot drinks.‬

‪Good‬
العائلة • أغسطس 2021
‪Very good . Not too pricey. Lots of lavender to see. Our two year old grandson loved walking through the lavender. You can get a bag for £3 to pick your own. Would visit again when in area.‬
