Castle Farm

This family-run farm a few minutes’ drive from White Hill Woods, is the largest producer of lavender in the UK. They produce seasonal crops all year round which they sell in their beautiful Hop Shop.

Well worth a visit at any time of the year, but particularly gorgeous in lavender season (Jun-Jul) and in September when you can pick your own apples.
