People who are visiting the Gardens will have additional entry to the House and BEE Fayre free of charge within the standard Garden Admission Fee of £5 per person.
Enys House is set in beautiful grounds and gardens of undulating wooded countryside with a lake and walled orchard within which the native Dark Bee is being nurtured by beekeeper and bee authority Rodger Dewhurst of www.gwenenapiaries.com.
Enys is particularly well known for the amazing display of bluebells in the Spring. http://www.enysgardens.org.uk/
The House will be filled with stands selling everything from Honey and Honey Comb, Beeswax Candles, Honey Soap and Cosmetics, Mead and Mead tasting, Bee Gifts including Jewellery, Textiles and Crockery, Bee Books, Beekeeping Clothing and Beekeeping Equipment.
There will be informative short lectures, PowerPoint presentations and plenty of interesting hands on activities for children and adults alike along with a Museum area.
Free leaflets and information will be readily available with knowledgeable beekeepers on hand to answer questions.
A fun packed Bee Loving Day for the whole family where we hope people will take away a sense of knowing much more about the bee species which frequent our gardens, what a beekeeper has to do when tending the bees and may be encouraged to take up beekeeping themselves.
