One of the many interesting and profitable ventures at Doddington Hall is also one of the oldest: bee-keeping. Hostess Julie Montagu is in a beekeeper suit to see how much honey she can extract.
Doddington Hall is an Elizabethan prodigy house, built for a self-made businessman in 1595. Today, it's the home of Claire and James Birch, who have transformed the grounds into a retail park open to the public. Host Julie Montagu, Viscountess Hinchingbrooke discovers how this modern couple maintains their estate, does a little shopping, takes a test-ride on one of the bike shop's new electronic bicycles, and leads a yoga class for the Doddington staff.
