the Bayside Cottage

The Bayside Cottage at Labyrinth Lane is a private handmade sanctuary, perfect for sewing the seeds of your very own handmade life.

There is no stark hotel aesthetic here, rather an emphasis on natural fibres and beautiful shapes, simplicity and stillness. You’ll have at your disposal a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom/laundry and library-come sitting room in addition to your spacious bedroom. 1-3 people can be accommodated comfortably with a QS bed and guaranteed ‘sag-free’ sofa bed. Electronic conveniences such as Wifi are present but not a focus. Unwinding your mind and connecting more deeply with your own rhythm, in the tranquillity of the space, is what’s possible.

This is what you can anticipate at the Bayside Cottage…
