Lavender has been used for centuries in medicines, perfumes and household luxuries. The Romans used lavender to scent water in their bathhouses and laundries, while the soldiers used it to heal wounds and treat infections.
There are about 39 species of lavender, but Bridestowe Lavender Estate only grows Lavandula angustifolia – the single species suitable for both perfume and culinary use.
Flowering season runs from December to January but is open all year round. They have a Cafe and Gift Shop.
