Situated alongside the River Severn in the heart of Wales, St Giles Golf Club is home to a nine-hole, 6012-yard parkland style course. Originally founded in 1895, the club spent the first 13 years of its life at the Bryn on the outskirts of the market town of Newtown, before moving to its current location in 1908. Today, the course uses the natural contours of the land to provide a challenging golfing experience, rising and falling towards the River Severn, which borders the course and comes into play on three holes.

Hilltop was founded in 2011 when Scott started beekeeping as a hobby. Scott jarred up his hard work from that summer and shared the golden nectar with his friends and family – Much to Scott’s surprise the local shops wanted the honey and the company was on the road to success. The company has grown to over 70 employees in the local area and supplies honey, maple syrup and lip balms to stores nationwide.
