Why the name Lazybed? Lazy beds are basically 'old school' potato patches. Land dug out with drainage ridge and furrow, filled with seaweed. A simple and effective way for crofters to live off the land in the old days. Originally we had planned to do exactly this on the site, it was the perfect spot to have a lazy bed where we could grow tatties and kale. Our croft is hilly and we didn't want the upheaval or expense of a new road for access to build our first self-catering unit, so we decided to put it in place of the lazy bed, hence the name.
