A couple of weekends ago we visited Lordington Lavender fields, a stunning field full of Lavender, which was a perfect place to get some pictures! My Instagram feed was filling up with people visiting their local Lavender fields, and I couldn’t wait to visit ours.
UPDATE FOR 2019 –
We are delighted to release our 2019 Open Day dates: Monday 8th July – Sunday 14th July.
10am-4pm (Last entry at 4pm, lavender to be cleared by 4.30pm)
Gate entrance fee is £6 per person with under 16s remaining free. (Please bring cash as car payments do not work on the entrance) –
Lordington Lavender is only open for 1 week during the year, so you have to be on the ball to spot it! As last year was so popular, and a lot of people turned up to visit. They issued out a ticket system, you had to book your open day ticket online, and couldn’t turn up on the day. I was a bit worried about doing this because of the weather, my pictures wouldn’t be that nice with us looking like drowned rats!! However we were lucky, it was grey but dry, phew!
Tickets were priced at £6 per adult, and children are free. It is well worth a trip, and I was super pleased with the photos I took on the day.
As you approach Lordington Lavender fields, you are directed into one of their surrounding fields. It is about a 5 minute walk from the car park, and a little uneven underfoot. They have provided a tractor and trailer to ferry people to and from the car park. Great idea!
It is really hard work for Tyler to visit the Lavender fields, as he isn’t very keen on bee’s. However he did so well, and if anything it did him good, there was a lot of bees, but they weren’t interested in us at all. Happily feeding off the Lavender, and showed him they weren’t bothered by him at all.
What I loved about Lordington Lavender fields, is that the lavender is close together. It means you can get right in between, and get some lovely photos. Nearly everyone was there taking photos!
Also I loved that the fields were on a slope, and the lavender went up a hill behind you. So it made some really lovely backdrops to the photos.
If you live close to Lordington Lavender in Chichester, then do keep an eye out for their open days around June/July next year, it is well worth a trip.
Bring some pennies too, as they have a little marque set up with lavender goodies, food and drink.
