With the UK currently experiencing hot weather, lavender fields in Surrey serves a sigh of relief with breathtakingly picturesque locations which also resemble those in Valensole and will feel as though they are overseas. Reportedly, Locals have been swarming Mayfield Lavender Farm to click pictures and enjoy the serene vibe.
Located in Banstead in east Surrey, the purple flowers at the Mayfield Lavender Farm are now in full bloom and the farm is open to the public every day until the end of August.
The 25-acre lavender farm also has a café and store where a variety of exquisite lavender products, including scones and toiletries, are sold. Visitors can meander through the sea of stunning organic lavender all day long to take pictures and enjoy the wonderful aroma.
Although the weather can affect these dates, the Surrey farm’s lavender typically begins to bloom toward the middle to end of June, and the peak months are July and August. Picnics are not allowed anywhere on the farm, and weekends can be very busy, therefore it is advised that visitors schedule a visit during the week if at all feasible.
France’s charming Provencal hamlet of Valensole is perched atop a hill with a view of a breathtaking lavender valley. Every year, thousands of travellers from all over the world come to this popular tourist destination in the south of the nation.
