David Beckham's beehives have begun to attract bees

When he first announced the venture at the family's country home in the Cotswolds, his wife Victoria shared a video of him hard at work and said, "David decided to start building beehives. Is that your new project darling?" To which David replied: "You'll be very happy when we have our own honey."

The video showed him building the beehives from scratch using wood and a selection of tools at their outdoor dining table.

It comes as no surprise that the idea has already started to attract wildlife, since their home in the Cotswolds is surrounded by two acres of land and has its very own apple orchard.

Elsewhere in their outdoor space, they have a huge tennis court where David and his son Cruz have been spending a lot of time during the coronavirus pandemic, a plunge pool, and even an Estonian igloo-style hut complete with a steam room, sauna and relaxation room.

David, Victoria, Cruz, Romeo and Harper have spent the last three months at their country home during the COVID-19 period (Brooklyn opted to stay with his girlfriend Nicola Peltz in New York), and the family have shared several glimpses both inside and outside of the home.

As the UK's coronavirus rules are beginning to ease, the family are likely to return to their £31million London home soon, but for now, David seems quite content with his new hobby.
