We are on the junction of Croydon Lane and Carshalton Road by the two mini roundabouts..
You can plan your route by public transport by clicking this link: http://www.transportdirect.info/Web2/Home.aspx - just enter your address as the starting point and enter our post code SM7 3BA This will enable you to plan your route using the new 166 bus which stops directly outside our front gate – you wont have to walk far at all!
From CENTRAL LONDON – If you are travelling from Central London it is often easier to take the train to West Croydon and just get the 166 bus. This bus stops directly outside our main entrance and the stop for our farm is called “OAKS PARK”.
The bus driver of the 166 bus sent us a very helpful email about the best way to get to the farm from Central London Thank you very much Riaz, we really appreciate your comments…
“Hi there, I am a 166 bus driver and would like to suggest a easier way for those who wish to visit Mayfield Lavender. I guess
most of these visitors go by the directions you have given on your website which doesn’t mention about any other train stations apart
from Epsom. I would like to point out that there is only one bus every hour to and from Epsom but if they were to get the bus from
Croydon/Purley/Coulsdon the service frequency is every 20 minutes. I do get passengers very often who get surprised when the bus terminates
at Banstead, most people don’t realise that there is only one bus every hour to Epsom. And there will be more trains from Croydon/Purley
to central london than Epsom. Regards, Riaz”
Don’t confuse us with Oaks Farm or Clarkes Farm which are next to our lavender Farm. These are unconnected and have different owners. Our farm is often referred to as Mitcham Lavender, Surrey Lavender, Carshalton Lavender, Surrey lavender and Banstead Lavender. It is in fact simply Mayfield Lavender.
