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!!
I recieved my Short Hive in the Autumn and was delighted with it. Excellent quality and craftsmanship, a really beautiful hive. Professional, friendly communication. I can't wait to move my bees into it in the spring!
