Stands up well ti the rain and other elements

I love the Hyde Hive so much! The coating has protected from the extreme storms we’ve had plus the lashing rain. The colour is bright too. Really worth it ti protect the hives

Amazing for Disabled Beeks just live it (bees do too!)

Wonderful service great attention to details I needed to make my beekeeping easier for me. Delivery was smooth and direct to my garden bee enclosure. I’ve added handles so I can hold on and hooks inside to hang my hive tool so I don’t have to bend. Thank you to the team a great job

Lovely addition to the Apiary

I am delighted with my new Layens Hive from Hyde Hives. A beautiful looking and sturdy hive which will compliment my Long Hive superbly. The build is excellent, I have no doubt it will give me many many years of great service.

I’m unsure to run it as one or two hives at the moment I’ll see how the new colony takes to it and how they progress. The bees certainly have 5 star accommodation with this hive.

Thanks again Matt & Dean for a lovely bit of kit.

I love my new Hyde hives long hive

The hive looks amazing, I’ve had lots of comments from passers by about how good it looks. I’m looking forward to installing a colony and working with it at waist height, no leaning over! The gas struts on the roof do a great job.

Well made

Fits neatly in the long hive.

Well Worthwhile

Makes sense to oil the hive in 'factory conditions' before facing the weather. A good-looking job.

Excellent Quality & Service

Really impressed with the design and build quality - stout timber, close-fitting joints, should last for decades. Satisfying to see the whole operation is run sustainably on site from raw logs to finished product. The guys were most helpful loading this very substantial item onto my pickup. Thanks to all.

Excellent

Well worth the money to have the hive oiled and waterproofed before delivery.
Nice finish and rich colour.

Beautiful hive

Excellent service from start to finish. The hive is beautifully made and unique.
Delivery was fast and communication was excellent.
A personal service, informative and helpful throughout.
20 deep frames (no wax) ready for a new swarm. Sturdy stand . Perfect hive for a more hands off approach to beekeeping or just for something a little different.
I would highly recommend Hyde Hives.

The hive is a work of art. It is beautifully made and immaculate. Everything fits together perfectly and I can't wait to use it next season. Great customer service and delivery in just a few days. Thank you guys.

First Long Hive

I first saw this at the National Honey Show 2021 and was immediately impressed by the quality and the potential ease to manage two hives in one. Presently having 6-8 National hives with a brood and half (and 14x12) and then two superstores there is a lot of back breaking work. This must be the way ahead! Presently still in my garage awaiting the 2022 season. Dean and Matt have both been very helpful throughout the whole process from the Honey show through to delivery. It is a beautiful thing and will be reluctant to put it outside😂
Now, what to do with those Nationals😱

Real Quality

I absolutely love my 40 frame Hyde long hive. The quality is outstanding and you can tell it's a Beekeeper making these because there is nothing I can think of that I'd change or improve on. So well built, I honestly don't know how they do it for the price. The moment I watched the Black Mountain Honey review on YouTube I knew I was going to get one. Cheers Matt and Dean, it was a pleasure to deal with you.

Real quality, built to last..!

Arrived earlier than expected in perfect condition. As I oiled the hive the aroma of cut cedar was so comforting, a beautiful piece of craftsmanship & I can't wait for the spring and to house the first of my colonies. An new adventure in my beekeeping journey. Exciting times ahead.

Excellent quality, great price

I've looked at the 'long hive' for some time but the price was always a stumbling block. However come the end of season sale I took the plunge..!
It arrived, an impressive sight. The aroma of cedar as I oiled the hive was amazing. Its now ready for bees in the spring & I can't wait to use this hive & the different methods of hive management, I'm wishing away the autumn & winter months..!

Good job

Received my long hive, already built up. It was very heavy. I had to strip it down to move it. I’ve treated the stand and made metal cups for the feet. Insulated the roof and cut panels for the crown boards. My bee’s have already been selected and repositioning to align with the long hive. I’m really pleased with my purchase. Good job lads 👍🏻

Love it

The bees just love this Apimix and with all the additives and nutrients, it's the perfect feed for those long winter months.

The hive is beautifully made and finished.
I was thinking of giving up beekeeping because of my disability but not now.
This hive is a game changer in many ways. Being able to check on the the bees takes seconds.
No more heavy lifting.
