Our Short Hive is for a single colony with a single entrance. The hive is made up of 20 frames with a queen excluder separating the brood from the super or honey stores.
Our hives are made in a few different frame sizes, the most popular in the UK is the BS National (British Standard)
Frames sizes: National (DN4), Langstroth, 14x12
- The hive is fully assembled
- 2 x Clear crown boards
1 x Clearer board
Please note: Queen excluders are not included and after much research and customer feedback, we realise they are not needed in our short hives. But obviously, if you would like to run your hive with a queen excluder (as lots of beeks do) they are available to purchase below.

Looks amazing and well built. Bees installed yesterday, can’t wait to see how they settle in!
Loving the clear pvc top boards and way less lifting! Inspections are so much less intrusive. This is my first but I am sure not my last!
Very well made
Smells of newly cut wood
Sure Bees will be happy when they move in.
Thank you Guys
I'm really impressed with this hive, It's a lovely design and beautifully made with quality materials.
Hive arrived on a wet Sunday! Heavy piece of timber and solidly made. Now comes with entrance at either end. Really pleased with it.
I’ve now purchased 4 long hives from Hyde Hives...2 long doubles and 2 short single hives. Extremely high quality, fantastic selected materials used & a very friendly/professional and helpful service. You would struggle to find anything similar to these hives. A****. Very impressive!!
