For a free day out, it's not bad but if I'd had to pay, I'd've been a little disappointed. The bus outside which has been converted into a cafe, is fab however :)

I'm a local who lives a few miles from the Honey farm and have been going since I was a child. I hadn't been in years but decided to go as my boyfriend was visiting from Edinburgh. So we walked down to the chain bridge and entered the visitors centre. It was just how I remember it being, you get a strong smell of beeswax and sweet honey which is so pleasant and unique. You can see the bees behind glass (try and find the queen!) and buy an assortment of beautifully made candles and honey. There is the cafe which I had never been to before which was brilliant. It is situated on a double decker bus! Great service and the sunny day made it a great day out, my boyfriend really enjoyed it. For me it was more a nostalgic visit! Worth going along whether it's just as a part of a day out, a stop off or just for a cup of tea.

I recently went with a large family party, wasn't very impressed, the children's play area were a few old looking ride on toys in a roped off area. The only friendly member of staff was a young lady in the antique shop, which is worth popping into! The worst part was the honey shop with a very horrible old lady running it who grabbed my 2 year old sons arm hard and literally snatched a plastic tasting spoon out of his hand muttering something to herself leaving my son and I astonished and rather upset.
It's free for a reason if you have younger children I really wouldn't bother, will not be recommending!
