I have no idea why people complain about this place. It is rustic and full of information and if you pin your ears back and absorb everything you just might learn something instead of sitting in the cafe and ignoring an educational experience. Do some...More

It’s a lovely idea and we hope the move to different premises does the visitor centre good. Our experience was marred a little by the group of unsupervised children running around, shouting at each other for the entirety of our visit. We paid £7.75 each...More

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.More
