Under brilliant sunshine close to 2000 people gathered to smell sweet lavender, listen to music and watch cooking demonstrations on Sunday.
Lavandula owner Carol White said the warm weather meant crowds were eager to explore the grounds early in the morning.
They were treated to a rare delight with hot air balloons flying over the fields.
“It was like a crescendo to start the day,” Ms White said.
Ms White said guests laid out picnic rugs in shaded areas and enjoyed a lazy afternoon.
“It was a like a lazy summer day … people stayed a long time and enjoyed the entertainment,” Ms white said.
The entertainment was diverse and included Morris Dancers who performed despite the heat.
Children were treated to animal farm – but there was one stall that was extra popular.
“Everyone loved the lavender ice cream,” Ms White said.
