We stayed there a while ago and it was amazing. The country side is amazing, and the Farm is wonderful. We would have stayed for longer but could only get one night in. The little 'museum' on the farm has some interesting things found locally with some good information to read. Good food, good location, awesome hosts with heaps of... More

Really enjoyed our stay again with Dirk as a charming and knowledgeable host. A relaxed and friendly atmosphere, with superb breakfast and comfortable room. Proximity to Belgium WW1 sites and overall experience makes this an ideal place to stay.

Have stayed there 5 times now and can't wait to go back out later this year. Also found a picture of my great great uncle on the wall in the breakfast room. Dirk and Barbara are very welcoming and always on hand.

Varlet Farm is a wonderful location to stay when touring the WW1 battlefields. Barbara and her father run a magnificent B&B. their breakfast is second to none and they allow you to pack a lunch. The honour beer fridge and the lounge make for an enjoyable evening talking to other guests. The rooms are large with comfortable beds. You are... More

Have just returned for our third visit. This time in a quiet and very cold February, we were the only 4 people staying, so had the place to ourselves. Dirk and Barbara as warm and welcoming as always, as was the delicious homemade apple pie on arrival. We made good use of the honesty bar and the plentiful tea, coffee... More

My husband and I stayed at Varlet Farm for 5 nights in late October 2014 to follow my grandfathers WW1 footsteps and the sites where they were injured. We could not have chosen a better or more appropriate site.......right on the Passendale battlefield. Dirk and Barbara were the most wonderful hosts, full of information when asked and just so kind... More
