    Absolutely fantastic day. Very interesting and all brilliantly explained. Full of interesting facts about our little bees and their needs. I loved them before and love them even more now.

    Get as up and close to them as you feel comfortable with. Very picturesque setting and Ruth and Dave are warm hearted, full of energy and most of all very friendly and make you feel very welcome.

    This is must and a chance of a life time to get close to one of nature’s beautiful creations and to help us learn and understand about their importance to us and about the bees future.

    What a wonderful afternoon- the setting, the information, the organisation and the honey!

    An outstanding experience for adults and children. Our five year old grandson was riveted from the moment he was able to use the smoker. Seeing the bees, holding different honeycombs and tasting the honey was all reported back in full detail to his parents and to his teacher! And the daily teaspoonfuls of honey continue to be the highlight for us all!

    We will definitely return and would recommend to all.

    Thank you, Ruth and Dave.
