Bridestowe Lavender Estate runs over 260 acres and is the world’s largest privately-owned lavender farm. With an estimated 650,000 plants, the lavender rows stretch for about 200 kilometres in total – our guests love to get lost in the purple flowers, clean air and open spaces of our farm. Bridestowe grows true French lavender, Lavandula angustifolia, the only lavender variety suitable for use in perfume and cooking. As a result, Bridestowe Lavender Estate is one of the few farms that is truly paddock to plate. When lavender flowers are harvested at Bridestowe, a portion are dried and the remaining flowers are distilled to extract their fine oil. Our premium lavender oil and flowers are then used to create a wide range of beautiful products, from skin creams, teas, soaps and linen sachets to our famous Bobbie Bear heat packs and lavender pancakes. All of this happens at Bridestowe and you can watch it in action throughout the year, taste test our products in the Woodcroft Café and browse through our extensive gift shop. As the oldest and most respected global brand for fine oil, Bridestowe Lavender Farm is amongst the world’s best.
