Orchids in the Cotswolds

May is such a lovely month – and made all the more beautiful by all the orchids popping up around the Estate and at Clattinger Farm – next door to the Lower Mill Estate.

Lavender in the Cotswolds

Lavender in the Cotswolds

With the summer well and truly with us, now is a perfect time to make a visit to Cotswold Lavender, set in the heart of the beautiful Cotswold Hills. There’s nothing quite like the beautiful scent and vibrant purple haze. A wonderful way to spend a summer’s afternoon.

Cotswold Lavender is a 45 minute drive from the Lower Mill Estate in Cotswold Water Park.

Orchids at Clattinger Farm

Orchids at Clattinger Farm

Two weeks ago when we visited Clattinger Farm, a fabulous lowland meadow of international importance for its hay meadow wildflowers, it was filled with cowslips and snakeshead fritillaries. We looked for orchids and there were just a small handful – in the sort of numbers that you would expect to find in usual places where orchids grow. We returned to the field this weekend and it is now overflowing with orchids in spectacular numbers – such a rare and beautiful sight. They will continue to flower during May and into June.

Clattinger Farm is the next farm to the Lower Mill Estate and well worth a visit during your Cotswold Family Holiday.
