About Angie Leach

I originally come from Cape Town, South Africa, but have been letting our holiday cottages since 1995. My husband's family have had the farm since the 1930's. 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.

Exactly as the pictures

  • 4 of 5

The property is exactly as seen on the pictures. Not very cosy, but a spacious house. Down sides: The closet in the bedroom upstairs had only very tiny drawers, not suited for putting in clothes. For the rest there was only space to hang clothes in that room. Some of the windows didnt open. The stove in the kitchen was a little bit difficult to operate, since most of the marks were gone (abraded).

The mead open farm was a great succes for the children. They really loved all of it.

Nice to go to is the Roald Dahl museum, not very close, but worth the trip.

Leighton Buzzard is a glorious market town located in the county of Bedfordshire. One of the areas main attractions is the Leighton Buzzard railway, one of Britain's leading narrow gauge railways that escorts you back to a time forgotten, you can ride the train every Sunday and Bank Holiday. The back drop of the Chiltern Hills provides great walks and areas for exploring or if you fancy a more energetic day out why not take a trip to Ascott, Woburn Abbey or even Milton Keynes for a day shopping.
