• Mayfield Lavender Farm

A romantic Provence-inspired date, just 15 miles from London

As romantic days out go, you can't beat a springtime stroll through the lavender fields of Provence, followed by a glass of golden white wine in the mellow evening sunshine. But this little south of London gem, nestled snugly in the North Surrey Downs, comes in a close second...

Just 15 miles from the capital, Mayfield Lavender Farm is a stunning and surprising 25-acre oasis of calm. Leave the Big Smoke behind and spend a day meandering hand-in-hand through the fragrant, purple-flowering landscape - a treat for the soul as much the senses, and the perfect backdrop for fledging romance. 

The summer months are the best time to go, ahead of the late August harvest. Your four-legged friends are welcome too as long as they're well behaved. And don't forget your cameras and selfie sticks - this London day trip has 'Instagram love shoot' written all over it.
