“A brilliant day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2013

I was surprised to read the indifferent recent reviews as our party of 27 were unanimous in their enjoyment of the visit. We were met on arrival by the owner and, after coffee and a selection of delicious honey-rich cakes, he showed us round the excellent exhibition which included five live colonies of honey bees in transparent display cases. He dismantled an empty beehive to show us how it works and explained the social hierarchy of the colony and the role of the queen bee who lays 1500 eggs per day.
We spent 3 fascinating hours there browsing numerous displays and viewing an interesting video. The shop is stocked with quality bee-related merchandise, ideal for gifts, and lots of honey and mead.
I would recommend it to anyone interested in "edutainment" in a delightful rural setting. Good value all round.

“Interesting place and lovely cafe”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2013

My children (teenagers) really enjoyed the little tour and seeing the bees and ants although it is a little bit expensive for what is there. We enjoyed the cafe and had the most delicious cream tea. We also enjoyed the shop and all the different types of honey. The setting of the farm is also really pleasant, wooded with a little steam which you can sit by. We ended up going back for a second time during our holiday just to the cafe and will certainly go back.

Went here with our family and what a waste of money. Very unhelpful staff, lady on till was like a headmistress, no fun here at all. Expensive shop, eggs were 60p a dozen more than any where else, honey was expensive too, definitely not for children. Ten minutes maximum and you have seen it all.

We called at "The Honey Farm" expecting to see hives and and a demonstration of beekeeping outside, but there was just a loft with some exhibits which they wanted to charge us £3.75 to enter. We had a cream tea when we arrived which was delicious, perfect scones & lots of cream and jam. However the ladies working there were unfriendly and served us without a smile. Our party of 4 adults were courteous but were met with a distinct feeling of not being welcome. There was also a shop.

It was so different from everyone else in the New Quay area who were without exception helpful, welcoming, polite and gave us excellent service.

“Interesting place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2013 via mobile

As a family with young children, it provided a nice hour or so out of the wet and windy weather. We enjoyed learning lots and seeing the live displays, and children enjoyed the ants, dressing up, and drawing pictures. The cafe had lovely scones and lemon cake! Honey was good value, and lots of interesting things on sale.
