I recently took our team of volunteers from the Scottsdale Visitor Information Centre to visit Bridestowe Estate and experience first hand what we refer our visitors to see. A number of volunteers where visiting Bridestowe for the first time and the experience for them was brilliant. Fantastic staff on hand to help, beautiful scenery, the cafe and gift shop are... More

We were overwhelmed by the wonderful aroma and majestic fields, fields and more fields of beautiful purple lavender on our early arrival at Bridestowe Lavender Farm. If possible try to get there early to avoid the throng of crowds and buses coming in all day. It really is a beautiful place to visit while the lavender is still in is... More

Interesting place to visit, even on a rainy winter's day. The smell of lavender still lingered in the air out in the fields. Will have to visit another time when the fields are in bloom! The (lavender) scones were delectable - light & fluffy, moist and 'melt in your mouth' amazing!! A lot of merchandise in the store is overpriced,... More

We visited during Winter, so no flowers in bloom but we still enjoyed our visit. Wasn't too busy so we could sit where we wanted. We had scones and coffee and it was very nice. We did buy afew things from the gift shop, although I did find it abit expensive, otherwise I would have bought quite a lot more.... More

Me and my partner planned to visit Launceston in the weekend and this was planned at least 1 month ahead, we knew the farm doesnt open during weekend in Winter. Hence 2 weeks ago Bronwyn asked us to write an email, the email was done with all the details in it. A call was made, and Bronwyn said she will... More

We visited the farm whilst the flowers were in full bloom and just before they were harvested as well as after the harvest. The aroma was amazing. There is a coffee shop and a shop front as well as an online shop. The online shop doesn't have all the products that are available in the shop front. I purchased a... More

Bridestowe was on our route so we dropped in rather uncertain as we had read so much about the fees. Fortunately despite it being December there seemed to be no fees the day we were there. While the views across the lavender fields were beautiful once we had exited the car, I doubt if we would have gone in if... More

Could not believe how rude and condescending the staff were to the Asian visitors in the gift shop - and there was a coach load of them, all spending a lot of money. Wake up to yourselves, disgraceful behaviour.

Sight was not nothing special and the staff treats you like thieves and lairs. You can buy products in shops like Dusk and the sorts $45 for a teddy bear is steep. Wish I hadn't driven one hour out of Launceston to be treated the way we did. Food was average. Couldn't taste the lavender in the ice cream and... More

We are sorry you did not enjoy the contoured fields- even though we have completed this year's harvest there are many people who take the time to enjoy the landscape. There is no charge for entry at this time of year, so many people enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and the aroma of the distillery. Our products contain the pure lavender... More

We paid $7.50 each to get in (which tasmanians don't have to pay- bloody stupid) and once in there was no purple to be seen. Couldn't even smell the lavender. Got given a bit of paper to guide our 'self tour' - took us 5 minutes as we couldnt access half the buildings anyway. There was nobody there to answer... More
