Based in the North Cotswolds, Cotswold Bees Ltd produces high quality honey both in the jar and in the comb. We also provide beekeeping training courses, both face-to-face and online, to new and more experienced beekeepers.

As bee farmers ourselves, with our own apiaries spread throughout the North Cotswolds, we understand the needs of anyone thinking of starting out in beekeeping or anyone with a small number of hives who wants to take their beekeeping to the next level.

If you decide to begin beekeeping we can provide everything you will need, bees and all the equipment, to start this fascinating hobby.

We offer a range of training courses, from online courses to one or two-day face-to-face courses.  We also run bespoke courses for one or two people, and corporate courses for groups are also available. See our beekeeping courses section for details.
