Some information about us

We have kept bees here at Hatton Lodge for nearly 30 years, having up to 18 hives at one time, and we are both Master Beekeepers. We currently manage 10 colonies in National Hives, although we started with WBC’s, and these still have a special place in our hearts. Whatever your choice of hive, we will endeavour to provide the best quality equipment, clothing and tools at the right price from our comprehensive range of stock, and can also help with any advice you may need on any aspect of beekeeping, whether it is basic manipulation, feeding, extraction and bottling, or wax and candle making. We are agents for Thorne’s Beehives, the largest producers of beekeeping equipment in the UK, with a well-deserved reputation for excellence.
