If only all companies could be this on the ball. Personal and personable service, great product, efficient delivery and a beautifully designed and expertly made product (made from mostly sustainable materials) the dream product and company.
I’m glad I had the option of the oiled service as since I received the hive it has rained consistently! No place to store and no place to do myself. As with the hive, a great job.
Purchased a new long hive for MBKA club training apiary. Delivered by Dean in the back of his van. The quality is excellent. It has now been treated and located on site ready to receive two new colonies.
Lovely hive, and excellent delivery team, very helpful. I am happy with the hive, just need to learn how to manage bees in it now.
Only snag - I asked Matt about the width of the splayed legs to be sure they would fit on a 600mm slab and was reassured the measurement to the outside edge of the legs is 600mm. When it arrived it didn't fit on the slabs, as the outside edge measurement is 645mm. More groundwork required ;- )
Really pleaded with these that I received as part of my hive bundle, they fit really well and are super comfortable
I'm a relative novice having just embarked on my 2nd year. I was lucky enough to have ordered during one of Hyde's deals so got a long hive for less than £400. Make no mistake, this is a high quality produce that is hard to fault - two first quality hives for that kind of money is great value and delivered in person too, there was a little wait but only a few weeks (they're not Amazon and this is a quality product worth waiting for). Can't recommend these guys enough - the other reviews are equally glowing which is no surprise to me. I'll be back for sure - thanks Matt and Dean, you're two of the good guys.
Genuinely thrilled with this purchase. I have spent almost two years looking at beehives before embarking on beekeeping. For me this long hive is visually stunning but importantly for a beginner it doesn’t feel overly complicated. The hive is superb quality and the support from both Matt with my many questions prior to ordering and then Dean on delivery was great, genuinely helpful, lovely people and as many others have said, I am sure I will be back in for another hive in the not to distant future. Thank you hydehives.
This is true family success for Matt & Dean, and it is extremely satisfying to purchase from a small business who not only keep bees, believe in their own products, and as a result supply high quality hives.
They are happy to answer any questions, and a visit to Hyde Hives is rewarded with enthusiasm and pride for the products they manufacture.
Highly recommended and I feel sure I will be back for another hive in the not too distant future.
From my 1st initial contact asking many questions nothing was to much trouble and Matt explained and answered all my question, upon collecting my Hive Dean gave me a tour of the facilities from a pile of logs to the end product which I must say is absolutely 1st class quality. Highly recommended Hyde Hives, I purchased the National Long Hive can't wait to get the Bees moved into there 5 star home.
Ordered a long hive after some time of debating moving away from vertical hives. I managed to order the wrong hive and the team from Hyde Hives were really helpful and corrected my mistake after getting in contact withe me.
The delivered Hive is a not just a beehive but has the look of a central feature in the garden from now on.
Thanks Matt and Dean for all your help.
Hive arrived on a wet Sunday! Heavy piece of timber and solidly made. Now comes with entrance at either end. Really pleased with it.
A beautiful piece of craftsmanship 😃 I'm v pleased with quality of the carpentry and also the design with apex roof, divider board and neat firm hive stand. Great service from Matt and Dean in the buying process and on delivery 😃 thanks so much!
Really pleased with my new smoker that was received as part of my bundled up deal
Can’t wait to get my bees and use all of my new equipment
I’m very pleased with it -thank you very much
Thought I would give this hive ago after reading 'beekeeping with a smile' by Dr Leo Sharashkin. I absolutely love it and more importantly so do the bees.
