Always an enjoyable time for all age groups. Even better that we're supporting a local family business, and all types of jams and honey to 'bee' got
This is a lovely nature trail (we got nearly 4,000 steps in!). The flowers and plants were fantastic and we really enjoyed learning about the bees and other insects from Paddy and family who were very welcoming. There are nice little activities along the way for kids including a sensory garden and a maze. Definitely worth a visit.
I wasn’t sure what to expect but I have to say it’s a fantastic place. Paddy has a way of talking that you want to listen to him and hear more. So interesting and there is a plant that has the scent of chocolate . Will definitely be back and will recommend to everyone.
Smashing day out for children and adults alike. Loved the maze! Extremely informative and loved the beehives. So educational and staff are all very friendly, the honey tasting at the end was a real bonus. Everyone should visit here as its an amazing day out. Highly recommended.
Booked in for the Halloween experience. Great fun spotting all the spooks hiding in the garden and woods. Lovely way to "trick or treat" and I'll be booking for Halloween again next year.
Great fun at the Halloween event, kids delighted with their treats and tricks along the way. Fabulous family day out. Will definitely be back again.
Return visit to Beewise, this time for the Easter Egg Hunt. Kids had a brilliant time, they loved the new outdoor play area, bubbles always a winner too. Not to forget the gazillion chocolates and very challenging dragon eggs search. Paddy and team did a fab job and we can't wait to visit again to see all in bloom and the busy bees at work! Well done, always a great day out!
