The magic of beekeeping tour with lunch £95.00 per person

2014 event dates: Wednesday 14th May, Friday 20th June and Thursday 17th July.

Ian and Alex Atherton have been keeping bees for five years and look after the bee hives located in the grounds at Gidleigh Park. These fascinating events are ideal for those who are interested in the natural world, the art of beekeeping and the way in which honey bees interact with the plants and flowers in the area.  

Your event begins at 9.30am with Ian and Alex giving you a fascinating insight into discovering the world through the eyes of the honeybee, what goes on inside the hive and how beekeepers look after and care for these wild creatures. During the morning you will visit the bee hives and for health and safety purposes bee suits will be provided for all guests to wear.

Canapés and apéritif will be served at 12 noon, followed by a two-course, two Michelin star lunch with coffee and petits fours and a glass of wine.

£95.00 per person.
