RESIDENTIAL AND LEARNING EXPERIENCES FOR EVERYONE

New, Lower Prices for 2018!

We are very excited to announce a 'new and improved' set of beekeeping experiences for 2018 and, thanks to some new innovations, the prices are lower too, AND places are still limited to ensure everyone gets time with the bees.

All of our beekeeping experiences are designed to give you an insight into the world of bees and what it takes to keep them.  We hold organised, fun discussions and include lots of practical, hands-on sessions so you get to see and feel first-hand what beekeeping is like.  We look at lots of areas including: the bees themselves, their importance to our ecosystem, hives, honey and the creepy crawlies that make a bee's life tough.

You can join us for short or longer residential breaks or just attend the learning sessions of the programmes as a day-visitor.  You can even buy a gift voucher for a special couple or for any individual session so there really is something for everyone who is interested in these fascinating creatures or who wants to start out keeping bees.

a word about children

We are happy to have young people as guests but realistically, bees are wild animals and as such aren't always predictable.  Your safety (and that of the bees) is of paramount importance which is why we set a lower age limit of 12 for guests.  This is defined by both our experience and the available sizes of trustworthy beesuits.  Please get in touch if you would like to discuss suitability.
