The Noble Bee Honey Cake Recipe

25th Jun 2023

The Noble Bee Honey Cake

Beaulieu "river mouth apiary"honey, honey chantilly

Showcasing the Noble Bee Honey, which is exceptional quality, award winning New Forest honey from hives located at the mouth of the Beaulieu River just a couple of miles from the hotel.  The single origin honey is 100% natural, raw and unprocessed.

The honey is produced by Simon Noble who inherited his passion for beekeeping from his father and grandfather, both having been hobbyist beekeepers at their family farm in Hythe. Simon now has apiary sites across the New Forest National Park, encompassing a staggeringly diverse variety of nectar sources from a variety of different topographies. This means that the honeys from each of the different locations have fantastically unique aromas and tastes, unlike any other.

The honey cake is perfectly paired with home made ice cream flavoured with camomile grown in the Montagu Garden.
