Autumn News 2018
The Axbridge field has closed but....!
August 2018. This is the final weekend for the Axbridge lavender field! Carole and Barry Hamblin thank all their many wonderful visitors from home and abroad, friends and supporters for coming along this season and supporting their rural enterprise on the slopes of the Mendip Hills. After the close of season Lavender & Co products can be purchased from our online shop, our local stockists or at the markets we attend.
You can still buy our products by visiting our online shop or the stockists for our exclusive lotions, potions and culinary products made with the oil we harvest from our Axbridge lavender field. Group Talks with Lavender & Co
We are now taking bookings for our popular group talks. 'Lavender, the Forgotten Herb'
takes you back through history as to how lavender was used by the Romans when it came to
our country and how the herb is used now, plus Carole and Barry's experience of planting a
lavender field on the Mendip Hills. This is a very popular talk for groups and societies
and we bring our mini shop with our lotions, potions and culinary produce.
The cost for us to attend your local group is £45. To book a talk, call Carole Hamblin
on 01934 733939 or email here.
During the flowering season we offer the option of a popular guided walks of the single estate
lavender field to see the fifteen types of lavender we grow and how we use them.
These walks must be pre-booked with Carole and are ideal for groups of ten or more.
Please note the Axbridge lavender field closes at the end of August 2018.
Access for Wheelchairs.
We have a cafe and harding standing area and parking which have unrestricted views of the lavender field and is suitable for wheelchairs and mobility scooters. The top part of the lavender is accessed via a gentle slope which may not be suitable for visitors with restricted mobility. The shop by the cafe area has one small step. Please contact us before arrival if you need any assistance.
