We are a third generation family farm set in the heart of the beautiful Cotswold Hills. Traditionally an arable and sheep farm, in 2000 we had to make the difficult decision to diversify into other crops. The lavender plant loves our free draining limestone soils 1,000 feet above sea level giving the best growing conditions for the highest quality English Lavender Essential Oil. Our crops are steam distilled on the farm and made into our unique range of modern lavender products, all proudly made in Great Britain. In 2009 we relaunched our products under the brandname Cotswold Lavender and since then our product range has continued to grow with the launch last year of many new lines.
Lavender planting started here in a very small way back in 2000. From a few hundred plants put in the ground on hands and knees, we have now grown to 53 acres of lavender, 250,000 plants, some 70 miles of rows (and we have walked all of them!)
Lavender has thrived on the gentle free draining limestone hills. At 1000 feet above sea level the combination of soil type, altitude and climate produce ideal growing conditions for the finest English essential oils. With colours ranging from the rich deep purples through subtle blues to delicate pinks and whites, there is a lavender to compliment every garden.
