Based in the heart of rural Northamptonshire, at Bay Tree Cottage we run a wonderful and diverse range of art, craft, gardening, floristry, foraging and cookery workshops.

Rediscover traditional crafts from your grandparents’ era, master culinary skills from around the world, create a piece of artwork for your home, or embrace the festive season with homemade gifts, goodies & decorations!

Coming up soon . . .
