Picturesque lavender fields relaxation

If you decide to break out of London, to diversify weekends and breathe fresh air, a great option may be a trip to the lavender fields. And as a bonus - excellent photos on the lavender background. Near the capital of Great Britain, there are several lavender fields, which in beauty are not inferior to the French Provence.

Mayfield Lavender. The Mayfield Lavender farm has been working for more than 10 years. 10 hectares of lavender field can be seen in the south of England, in Bunsted. This is an ideal place for a family vacation and professional photo shoot. You can even visit the lavender fields with your pet - dogs are allowed in here. But the picnic can not be arranged: because of the garbage left behind by tourists, gatherings with food in the field were banned. After a walk, you can look into the local cafe and buy a lavender souvenir as a memory.

Hitchin Lavender. These lavender fields, 25 miles long, are located between London and Cambridge near the town of Hitchin. Here you can find two types of lavender: narrow-leaved (the most frost-resistant), which occupies the first seven rows on the left. Aromatic lavender, which is an excellent spice and widely used in cooking, occupies the rest of the field. Here you can walk along the lavender paths of 40 kilometers in length and pick fresh flowers. In addition to lavender, there is also a field with sunflowers and wild flowers that look no less beautiful. After a walk through the flower spaces, you can look into an authentic café and a shop, where you can see a lot of lavender-based cosmetics.

The Hop Shop. The family farm The Hop Shop is located in the picturesque village of Shoreham in Kent. The field extends to 38 hectares, so the area looks impressive during the blooming plants. To walk between the lavender paths, you can sign up for a group tour, during which you can not only learn a lot of interesting things about growing plants, but also learn how to made wreaths, attend a lavender aroma massage session. In addition, for guests of The Hop Shop picnics are organized right on the lavender field. Farm owners do not hide their pride of the fact that in the late 1990s their products received five gold medals at the Flower show in Chelsea and continue to win all sorts of awards.
