Description

Visit the world’s largest Honeybee exhibition; BeeWorld! The interesting displays and exhibits will teach you fun facts about the honeybee before you take a closer look inside the working hives.

Nowhere in the world can you get so close to so many hives without needing protective equipment! This is also where you will see the behind the scenes honey production areas and take the journey from hive to jar.

You may wish to take one of the daily guided tours or walk around at your own leisure.

Join in with the full day of activities, including the chance to make some beeswax candles and learn more about the diverse types of honey at a tasting session.

You can watch a LIVE beekeeping demonstration or even try your hand at a spot of beekeeping which gives you a unique opportunity to work alongside a beekeeper and learn more in depth about bees and the art of beekeeping. (You can sign up for this on the day).

The Happy Bee Play Hive; the large indoor soft play area with nets and ropes to climb over, perfect for young visitors and young at heart! This is also where you will find a world of bugs at our Critter Cabin, learn all about our different critters and get hands on if you dare!

Relax in our cafe where we offer homemade food and our freshly baked treats including our four seasons honey cream tea.

Visit the honey farm shop to see the array of honey products on offer as well as beautiful handmade beeswax candles and skin care.

Come along and taste the countryside!

I can’t believe how dog friendly it is. Big thank you. Time just flew by.

A great guy called Mark started with candle making at 11am, followed by a 12noon tour and talk, then a 1pm animal handling which we unfortunately missed and topped at 2pm by opening a hive and finding the queen. He is a credit to the farm, so enthusiastic and informative. He kept children and adults engaged and interested. I wish I could have stayed for the 3pm trial bee keeper. For a little extra charge you can get kitted out to handle the bee’s your self. We’ll have to return in the spring.
Thank you.

Brilliant morning spent at quince honey farm.
The kids rolled candles, went on a guided tour, held a giant snail and played on the soft play.
Kept my four children aged from 18 months to 13 years occupied and entertained which is no mean feat!
The tour guide was friendly, informative and funny.
Many thanks

We came here in May. After sitting down in our accommodation and looking thorough all the leaflets about the different accommodation in Devon, I decided I really wanted to go here! There are only so many kids adventure parks and zoos you can go to right? So we chose this as our wildcard day out, not quite sure how it would pan out with the kids. Well, I have to say the kids loved it! Plenty to do and the kids were fascinated by the bee hives. They loved the beekeeper demonstration and enjoyed the honest tasting. We didn’t even need to bribe them with the soft play area they were enjoying it that much. Great little place, and be kids voted it their favourite!
