As always an excellent welcome from Dirk and Barbara. Excellent rooms, spotlessly clean. I Can highly recommend Varlet Farm. As usual breakfast also provided the makings of a pack up for lunch. This is without doubt the place to stay in the Salient.

I have been to this bed and breakfast a number of times, first with my wife and very young daughter, when there were only a couple of rooms in the family house. I have returned a number of times with friends to do the WWI stuff, and have just visited with wife and two, now teenage, children. There is now,...

Stayed with Dirk and Barbara for the first time in coming on 10 years. The great thing is nothing has changed. The same great greeting, lovely cosy clean rooms and same great hearty breakfast. Always a fantastic B&B to stay at if you in in the Ypres area. Fantastic area if you are visiting the battlefields.

Cracking BnB a little to the east of Ypres, that I have stayed at before and would not hesitate to stay at again. In fact, I wouldn't even bother looking elsewhere if Varlet farm wasn't available; I'd rather change my holiday dates instead. Clean, welcoming, relaxed and perfectly located, Dirk and Barbara make everyone feel at home, including speaking excellent...
