Spinney Meadows and Brewery Cottage are spacious holiday cottages in a beautiful part of Bedfordshire. The cottage is situated at Mead Open Farm in the village of Billington which is near the market town of Leighton Buzzard. The Heast family has run the farm for 50 years, and for the past ten years it has been run as a working farm that is open to the public daily. The farm exhibits a range of indoor and outdoor animals, and has outdoor climbing frames and a heated indoor play-barn that is well used in the winter months.
I originally come from Cape Town, South Africa, but have been letting our holiday cottages since 1995. My husband's family have had our farm since the 1930's.
Since successfully letting our properties, I now look after other properties in the local area. Many of our guests have enjoyed staying with us from all parts of the world and appreciate the beautiful countryside around us and there is always plenty to do. Please don't hesitate to contact us for local information.
We arrived home to Australia this morning after three weeks at Brewery Cottage. The owner, Sue Heast greeted us at the door to the cottage when we arrived and made us feel most welcome immediately by providing tea & coffee and basic breakfast ingredients and ensuring that the heating had warmed the entire house. We found the cottage spotlessly clean, very well appointed and most spacious for two. It would have been equally comfortable for 4-6 guests.
The cottage is in a peaceful setting and guests can have as little or as much exposure to the nearby open farm as they wish. I would recommend the cottage to local and overseas visitors as it is so well positioned to locations such as Leighton Buzzard, Bedford and Aylesbury. For us as overseas guests visiting relatives, it was an ideal place to provide privacy and reflection after these visits. The location close to main highways but away from heavy traffic is very convenient.
Myself and my family spent two weeks in Brewerey Cottage and wanted to tell you how pleased we all where with the cottage, the cleanliness and the surroundings. I and also my Aunt who lives in the area, have told several people how much we enjoyed it, plus the price was reasonable considering five of us stayed there. Please pass this message on the the owners, Thank you
