The UK's lavender fields are in full bloom. Right until September, you can catch a glimpse of the blossoming lilac delights around the country. From rolling lavender fields in Surrey, to rivers of beautiful purple in Hampshire, there are plenty of places to see, and smell, the stunning sights.

Wonderfully, too, many of the lavender farms produce their own sustainable goods. From lavender-infused creams, to oils and jams, don't leave without a peruse around the family-run stores and cafes (and make sure to leave room for the homemade cakes).

Take a look at some of the best lavender fields to visit in the UK...

1. Cotswold Lavender, Cotswold Hill

Open until 4th August, this beautiful blooming lavender field is a must-visit for everyone. This stunning farm starts to bloom mid-June, continuing until August. As well as the breathtaking sights of purple, Cotswold Lavender also have a delightful tearoom serving up delicious treats. Make sure you don't forget your camera either, as the sights here are too good not to snap.

Hill Barn Farm, Snowshill, Broadway, Worcestershire WR12 7JY. Visit their website for more information.

2. Mayfair Lavender Farm, Surrey

Nestled in the heart of the Surrey countryside, this family-owned lavender farm is a beautiful carpet of lilac everywhere you look. The farm also produces its own lavender-infused bathroom products that smell as fresh as the fields themselves. Perfect if you want to leave with a little reminder of your visit. Top tip: the farm is incredibly busy on the weekends, so try to visit during the week if you can. While picnics aren't permitted anywhere on the farm, the on-site cafe is worth trying out (especially the lavender cider).

3. The Lavender Fields, Hampshire

This wonderful lavender farm grows over seven different types of lavender. Expect to see Folgate, Little Lady, Hidcote and Edelweiss blossoming in the Hampshire countryside. We love that there is also the opportunity to get your hands on handmade lavender hand cream, lavender chocolate and oils. Make sure you don't miss out on this one.

4. Lordington Lavender, Chichester

As you approach this lavender field, you will be hit with its vibrant sweet-smelling scent first. Every year, Lordington draws in a crowd of visitors from around the UK. For the best kind of day trip, take a ride on the tractor through the lilac fields and stop by for a slice of homemade cake on your way back.

5. Norfolk Lavender

Here, there is around 100 acres of fields teeming with spectacular sights of lavender, an oil distillery, on-site gift shop and a delicious restaurant serving up sustainable produce. Norfolk's world-famous fields were first founded in 1932 and have since been offering up visitors delightful lilac views. We recommend picking up the lavender-infused honey on your way out.

6. Hitchin Lavender, Hertfordshire

With spectacular picture-perfect views, this blooming lavender field is as lovely as can be. Just 40 minutes from central London, it's a brilliant place to visit on the weekend. You'll find 25 acres of lavender, a 17th century barn and mouthwatering homemade treats. Plus, if you come back in the height of summer you will also find growing sunflowers and a field of wildflowers.

7. The Lavender Farm, Yorkshire

Another one worth paying a visit to is The Lavender Field, nestled in the heart of Yorkshire. This family-run farm is vibrant, lively and as pretty as can be. There's a sculpture park, unbeatable views over the Vale of York and delicious treats at the cafe worth tucking into after an explore outside. The only problem with a place as beautiful as this is that you won't ever want to leave.
