Quince Honey Farm Tour

Now one of Britain’s leading honey farms, Quince Honey Farm in South Molton is a family run business which was first established in 1949 by George Wallace and two hives of bees. Now in its third generation and with over 1000 hives, they are always refining new beekeeping techniques and growing in knowledge.

A working honey farm and a tourist attraction, it offers a great day out for all ages, with something happening every hour of every day. Join a Guided Tour of the unique BeeWorld attraction and see millions of bees (all housed behind protective glass), watch a Beekeeping Demo and hold a frame of bees, sample their delicious honeys, try your hand at rolling a beeswax candle, enjoy a bee themed talk, encounter some creepy crawlies in the Critter Cabin, and get suited up to take part in Be a Beekeeper where you will be guided through the inner workings of a live beehive.

 

 

Barnstaple is the oldest borough in the country and is the commercial and agricultural centre of North Devon. A must visit for anyone seeking serious retail therapy. Saxons first settled in Barnstaple (Barum) over 1000 years ago; in 930AD it was a Saxon stronghold serving as a market for the surrounding countryside.

 

Today it has a wonderful mixture of Victorian, Medieval and Georgian architecture and is proud to be a multiple winner of Britain in Bloom. Visit the Barnstaple Heritage Centre, sited in a fine Grade 1 listed building to learn more about the town's 1000 year history. For more information on Barnstaple visit the local Tourist Information Centre.

 

As the premier town in North Devon you’ll find great bars, great restaurants and big name high street shopping. But that’s not what makes Barnstaple special. Not alone. That’s done by the independent boutique shops within the town, the proud local food producers selling their delicious delicacies in the Pannier Market and, of course, the town’s colourful history. It’s this mix of new and old, of modern and traditional that’s behind Barnstaple’s charm. We’d love you to share it with us.
