It’s not just at lavender time that Long Barn is a great place to visit. Our beautiful oak barn is set in 2 acres of lavender fields in Alresford, Hampshire, where you will always receive a warm welcome!

At Christmas we have been described as ‘A little Liberty’ and we pride ourselves on having the best range of Christmas gifts and decorations in the area.

From Easter, our plant terrace sells a first class range of plants for your garden’ from sumptuous old fashioned roses, dainty climbers, right through an excellent array of perennials to our unrivalled range of lavender plants. All year you can base your visit around a trip to our cafe.

In summer, enjoy sitting outside on the cafe terrace overlooking the lavender; at other times, the barn is a lovely welcoming place to enjoy a meal or treat yourself to our excellent coffee and cakes.
