Bee-friend the Bees with Hiver Beer at Albourne Estate

Ockenden Manor has teamed up with Hiver, the 100% natural, all-British craft beer to offer an immersive beekeeping and beer-tasting experience at Albourne Estate in the heart of the picturesque Sussex countryside.

Suitable for even the most bumbling beekeepers, the two-hour session will start with an introduction to beekeeping before getting suited up for a hive inspection. After getting up close and personal with the bees themselves, guests will retreat to the Albourne Estate tasting room for a relaxing food and drink pairing session with a tasty honey beer in one hand and the flavours of Sussex in the other.

You will then have the opportunity explore the rest of the enchanting vineyard, onsite shop and bar where you can sample some of their award-winning wines and even book up to join an Albourne wine tour that day*.

Upon returning to Ockenden Manor, guests can select their preferred pre-dinner drink, either a bottle of Hiver Beer or a glass of Sparkling Albourne Wine before indulging in a delicious three course dinner and a deeply comfortable night's stay.

Historic Sussex Hotels is a privately owned collection of three very distinctive luxury hotels set in some of the most beautiful locations in West Sussex. Each hotel is unique in style, character and history, yet together they are committed to offering the highest standards of hospitality, comfort, service and cuisine.

The group's first property, the Spread Eagle Hotel & Spa was bought in 1957 by the late Hugh Taylor and today his family run the small, exclusive group.  In 1987 Historic Sussex Hotels acquired Ockenden Manor and in 1993 Bailiffscourt Hotel & Spa was bought by the Group and lovingly restored.

Having celebrated the 50th anniversary of the group in 2007, the owners continue to invest in their hotels, creating luxurious country house retreats with antique furniture, rich textiles, modern amenities and excellent food.
