Guidelines for Photographers - Summary

 

We encourage people to photograph our lavender field but we ask you to bear in mind that it is private property. Nobody is permitted to enter the field without prior permission.

 

Our team is constantly at work on the field, mowing between the rows of lavender, hand weeding, bunching and harvesting at the end of the season. While everything is done to assist photographers and film crews, the safety and enjoyment of visitors is the priority during our opening hours. Please be prepared to work around our staff and the public where necessary. Day time photography fees do not include exclusive use of the field.

 

Drones are strictly prohibited on our field at all times.

 

We reserve the right to determine if your shoot is commercial in nature and you will be required to pay the photography fee if you haven’t already done so.
