The 24 active hives are situated on a nearby hillside close to the Manor's unspoilt valley and woodland.
The bee colonies not only help the surrounding crop production by improving pollination, but they also give the added bonus of providing an abundance of beautifully scented honey for the hotel's year round requirements.
The honey's unique scent and flavour is derived predominately from gorse that grows in abundance around the hives. A overwhelming floral sweet flavour is balanced with a hint of spice. This precious honey is best tasted in its raw state and makes the perfect breakfast accompaniment.
