Bees at Sysonby Knoll Hotel

We have kept Bees for over 30 years, and for the last 15 they have been mainly at Sysonby Knoll Hotel in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire. We currently have around 10 hives which are overwintered at the hotel and spend the summer at various locations in the vicinity, moving to maximise the honey crop obtained.

Our honey is guaranteed to be pure and is not processed in any way apart from fine straining to remove impurities and gentle warming as necessary to achieve the desired consistency for sale. The filters we use are not sufficiently fine to remove pollen grains from the honey, and many of our customers say that it helps them with hayfever.

Our honey is available to buy at reception and at "Ye Olde Pork Pie Shoppe" in Melton Mowbray town centre.
