We make two models of our hives, the Short for a single colony and the Long for 2 colonies.
The Perfect Beehive
We wanted to build something that would make your life easier, but also ensure that honeybees would thrive in a perfectly balanced environment, as close as possible to their preferred wild nesting sites.
We are two brothers that love keeping bees and making hives. Every hive is cut from sustainable English Cedar from UK forests and is milled and seasoned by us at the workshop. Each hive is then hand assembled, individually finished and delivered to you personally by us.
Queen Rearing (8xNuc)
We understand that buying your first hive can be slightly daunting. We offer a service that can supply you the full package straight to your garden. This includes your hive, your first bee colony and all of the equipment that you will need to get yourself going. If this is of interest to you then please get in touch for more information.
The most important feature is total accessibility. The hive is horizontal by design, so no heavy weights to lift. During an inspection, you simply lift up the gas strutted roof and you are in. Perfect for people with bad backs, young children in beekeeping, and beekeepers with certain disabilities.
Amazing service, really helpful
answered all my questions. Hive is beautiful and can't wait for my bees to have it as their new home.

New des res
For me with a bad back it’s ideal, just the right height. The bees seem to love it, the colony is thriving, and with it being so versatile I can add or take out frames as needed.
