The proprietors were very knowledgeable and passionate about the history and the area. The Farmhouse was a part of one of the main battles and therefore has its own unique place in history. We...

Having traveled throughout Europe in 2006 and staying a few days at Varlet Farm, this was the only repeat stop again in 2010 on our 9 week trip. It just had to be. Not a lot has changed, it's still the same incredible B&B, although we did have the new upstairs suite. Charlotte has thought of everything to make you...
