You would bee crazy not to visit this place

Grab a bee lollypop for the kids


The House of Honey is a honey farm, café and shop located in the Swan Valley. It is open Tuesday to Sunday from 10.00am to 5.00pm and closed on Mondays. It was founded in 2008 by Rupert Phillips. Rupert was born in Kenya and moved to Australia in 1982. His interest in beekeeping started when he was eight years old. Rupert started the House of Honey because he wanted to fulfil a lifelong dream of having a shop and a café dedicated to honey and bees.

Pick up something sweet in their honey shop


The House of Honey and the Sticky Spoon Café opened in 2010. The café serves coffee, tea, milkshakes, ice cream, cakes, cookies, quiches and savoury muffins and Devonshire tea which is served with a pot of tea, homemade honey scones, strawberry jam and a pot of honey.

Other delicious things you can try include their Traditional German Beesting Cake, Honey Cake, Carrot Cake and their Honey flavoured ice cream. When we visited I had a honey milkshake and a slice of carrot cake.

A honey flavoured milkshake


The milkshake wasn't too sweet and the honey flavour wasn't too overpowering so I really enjoyed it. The slice of cake came out with a swirl of cream and a dribble of honey on the side of the plate. It was a pretty decent slice of cake. If I go back again I will probably try their Beesting Cake or some of their honey scones. The café has indoor and outdoor seating available. If the weather is nice why not sit outside and enjoy a bite to eat in the café's lovely garden?

The live bee hive


A visit to the House of Honey can be educational for kids. The shop has educational displays about bees and honey all over the walls. There are books and posters and pictures about bees and bee keeping and you can observe a live bee hive.

I was intrigued by all the different types of honey


The House of Honey has a huge range of honey related items available for purchase in their shop. There was an entire wall of different flavoured jars of honey, a confectionery section, a wall of books and children's toys, candles and wax cubes, tea pots and glass jugs, stuffed toys and there was even a pair of bee gum boots!

There is a lot to see and do at the House of Honey. You can taste, touch and smell honey, learn all about bee keeping and even take home a bottle of wine. So the next time you're in the Swan Valley why not pop in for a visit?

We love the House of Honey, we visited with an overseas visitor and our little grandson aged 1 1/2, it was interesting, delicious, set in nice gardens. Recommended! :-)
