A freshly released set of pictures has given the world the first look of the marvelous tourist attraction in Devon county, southwest England. The beautiful city consisting of sandy beaches, fossil cliffs, medieval towns, and moorland national parks is all set to open its doors for a new tourist attraction this coming April, just in time for Easter holidays.
The new Quince Honey Farm is constructed at a site near the A361 North Devon Link Road. The attraction will consist of modern era buildings enclosed by beautifully landscaped gardens right in the middle of the farmland. These gardens will provide the tourists with attractions and entertainment before they get to the main structure.
The main structure will be shaped like a honeycomb, as seen in the aerial views of the site. The structure consists of a multi-purpose nursery to supply raised beds for bees. The surrounding buildings and structures have also been made to mimic local structures, with locally available plants and materials. The whole site is designed for bees and tourists, which even includes a dry-stone wall Bee Bole, for bees to sleep in.
The farm has been planted with fresh flowers all over, to facilitate the production of honey. This new site also boasts of many other tourist attractions, such as:
- A ‘Honey Factory’ with viewing galleries
- A bee exhibition centre
- An extensive education centre about bees
- Workshops for honey making
- An indoor play section for children
- An entertainment centre with café, shops and toilets
- On-site Holiday accommodation centre
The honey farm business attracts around 50,000 people to the county every year, a number which is expected to increase with the construction of the new facility. This will also bring in several employment opportunities for the locals.
Initially established in the year 1949 by George Wallace with just two honey hives, Quince Honey Farm has grown to become one of Britain’s leading honey farms. George Wallace developed an interest in bee-keeping during the end of his service in World War Two and has worked hard since then to establish this as a family business. Paddy’s mechanically run observation hives became world-renowned and recognised by beekeepers in the world.
