The Farmstead announced at Linmere

The Houghton Regis Management Company (HRMC), the consortium bringing forward the much anticipated Linmere development – where wellbeing is prioritised and outdoor living is a way of life – are delighted to announce The Farmstead, a new centre and community hub which will provide a café, retail, and leisure space at the heart of the Linmere development, due to open in early 2021.

Set adjacent to the beautifully landscaped grounds and gardens of Linmere Park, The Farmstead will consist of three barn-like structures arranged around a central courtyard and features a standout nature-inspired adventure playground for children, wrapping around the site.

The Farmstead will include an artisan café, with all day dining catering for up to 100 customers, a community hall, 3 multi-use retail or workshop units, an open-plan office space, and meeting rooms.

The Farmstead will be a lively destination where residents, locals and visitors are welcome. The premises will be overseen by a dedicated Linmere Manager who will organise events, workshops, and activities for the wider local community.

Nigel Reid, Project Lead for HRMC said: “The Farmstead is an important element of the Linmere development. We see it as being the heart and soul of the local area, not just for local residents but the wider community of Houghton Regis. The focus is on offering a café that aligns with the health and wellbeing ethos of the Linmere development, an
adventure playground and community hall.

We really are delighted to be launching The Farmstead vision, which will further preserve a link with the heritage of Hougton Regis, recreating the vernacular of the historic Houghton Regis Tithe Barns, and bringing forward a place that the community can enjoy and be proud of.”

There are many opportunities for innovative local businesses to be involved in running the café and retail units, and for local people to run classes and events. Please register your interest by emailing info@linmere.com.
