Brewery Cottage is a spacious holiday cottage 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.

Nice cottage, downstairs in particular was very well laid out. Plenty of space for the 6 of us. Tickets for the farm were great. We felt that it could have been improved with at least a tea bag or two in the cottage on arrival, and we had to ring to find out where our requested cot was. It was in the cottage, just not set up. The minor issues we had were resolved quickly,...

Truly enjoyed our 2 week stay in the cottage! Sue was quick to respond, and very helpful! Our favorite was just the open space in the kitchen/dining for cooking and conversation, along with enjoying coffee/tea in the garden area at the picnic table. Having the markets/pubs within 5 minutes away was enjoyable, yet had the country feel of being outside town.

Management response:

Thank you for taking the time to post a review, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay!

Stayed first week of August with my wife and and two grown up children(18 and 21). Excellent location, the cottage is very well presented with great amenities. Mead farm is a great attraction and we enjoyed feeding the animals. Being able to use the passes to come and go was brilliant. Used it as a base to visit Windsor, Thorpe Park, Cambridge, Woburn Abbey and Oxford. Leighton Buzzard is 5 mins away with everything you...

Had a fantastic time at Brewery Cottage. Great house and gardens. Free passes onto the farm was fantastic and we made the most of them, going to the farm in between going to Harry Potter Tour and Whipsnade. Very quiet and peaceful in the evenings after the crowds had gone during the day. Although the only noise we heard was lots of laughter from the children at the farm.

About the neighborhood
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. There are excellent pubs and restaurants in Leighton Buzzard and a trip to the Tuesday or Saturday market is a must for any holiday maker.
