We had a great time here. The tour was great and the chap was so knowledgable and friendly. The bee keeping demo was also brilliant and again the knowledge of the lady was exemplary. All in all a great place to visit and lovely staff.

Didn't find the place that interesting, altough I felt it was mainly targetted at children. Products in the shop were quite expensive and didn't find as huge variety of honey based products as I expected.
