We had wonderful service from very knowledgeable staff. I was surprised at the variety of types of honey and the amazing skin products they carry. I could have browsed much longer than our tour time allowed! The Thyme honey was our favourite.

Great place to take the children to learn all about bees. Lovely shop and lots of different honeys and products to buy. During the holidays they have talks and competitions.

If you like honey then this is a must visit for you, many different types of honey based on the plants that the bees visit. Lots of samples to be had and of course a large gift shop to peruse.

Thank you very much for your review and honest feedback. I was very disappointed to read that we gave you inattentive service whilst you were in. There should have been someone in the centre to answer your questions and definitely someone at the counter service...More

I am not a honey person but this place was a delight. Self education was an easy way to learn about the bees and honey. Seeing the bees at work was great. A large range of honey to sample and choose from. The shop also...More
