British National Beehives


Based in a small workshop in Tideswell in the Peak District we make Highest Quality British National Beehives out of 1st grade American Western Red Cedar or High Quality Red Deal according to the British Beekeepers Association (BBKA) Modified National Hive Plans. Everything we sell we make here in the Peak District. We also stock other items of Beekeeping Supplies including Frames, Foundation Wax and Hive Tools. The driving forces behind peak-hives.co.uk are sustainability and quality workmanship. Sustainability because, well it matters quite a bit we think and quality workmanship because customer satisfaction is paramount.



Cedar Scarcity.

Unfortunately building materials are extremely scarce at the moment and pricing is highly volatile. This goes for Western Red Cedar too. I have decided that until the market settles down I will not be making up any Cedar hives or hive parts. We'll be back in operation once the supply issues have been resolved. Many thanks.

Peak Hives Fondant Cosy

Requested by our long standing customer Johan I have just made up a batch of 10 of these ‘Fondant Cosies’. The outer ring is filled with 75mm Kingspan and the centre feed area is designed to take 2.5KG packs of either Fondabee or Ambrosia Fondant. The fondant is laid on top of the super/brood frames and is then covered with a lid filled with 25mm Kingspan. The lid sits on rails that are 50mm up from the base so there’s enough space above the fondant packs for the bees to roam around over the top of the fondant.

Tested them with 2.5Kg packs of Fondabee and Ambrosia. I’ve just added them to the Peak Hives product range and they can be found in the left hand column.
