Something different

Had a fabulous time making candles, lip balm and a whole lot of soap with my 13 year old. Our host was so helpful - opening up just for us even when the rest of the staff were out of action. Would recommend to anyone as a fun crafty experience! Thanks Buzzstop!

Best Experience ever

Do yourselves a favour and head down to Buzzstop. The hot chocolate is great and you get to make and try so many new things. I’ll be taking my family back there asap to try another honey crafting experience :)
