Bridestowe Lavender Estate (B/L)

It’s all about lavender today! Endless fields of lavender flowers will take your breath away. At 250 acres with an estimated 650,000 plants, Bridestowe is the world’s largest privately-owned lavender 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 truly paddock to plate. We’ll learn about the distillation process to make lavender oil. Morning tea and lunch are included today where you’ll complete your lavender experience with locally sourced ingredients creatively infused with Bridestowe’s culinary lavender. The gift shop is where you’ll find the famous “Bobbie the Bridestowe Bear”. Spend a relaxing afternoon on the pristine banks of the Tamar River at Waterton Hall, a magnificent 1850s homestead and home of Waterton Hall Wines. On a private walking & tasting experience, we’ll tour the historic convict-built Barn, walk through the gardens and vineyard and learn about this award-winning hand-picked, single vineyard.
