Walk the lavender fields to see the range of different types, and visit the distillery where each summer, the lavender is harvested and the essential oils gently extracted using just rainwater. The flowering time for lavender very much depends on the weather. In a typical English summer, the lavender fields should start to come into flower early–mid June. Cotswold Lavender are only open to the public when the lavender is in flower which is usually June, July and August. 


The 56-acre arboretum at Batsford is situated just a mile west of the historic market town of Moreton in Marsh in the heart of the Cotswolds. Former home to the famous Mitford family, interest in the arboretum begins in late winter when the snowdrops, aconites, and early flowering daffodils spring into life, followed by magnolias, hellebores, fritillaries, and the beautiful Japanese ornamental cherries – stars of the show from late March until mid-April. The handkerchief tree is another show-stopper in May, as are the beautiful wildflower meadows which bloom in high summer.
