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

I travelled with two friends to Ypres and we will all recommend Varlet Farm to our friends. The welcome was so friendly and welcoming. As previous guests have stated the breakfast was great and then we could make our own packed lunches at no extra cost (where would you get that nowaday's). We stayed in the owners home where they...

Finding words to describe Varlet Farm is very difficult, excellent just doesn't do it justice. What a warm welcome we all received when we arrived - fresh tea and coffee together with a slice of delicious home-made apple pie. Nothing was too much trouble - breakfast beyond belief, eggs ,cheese, ham, yoghurt together with home-made bread and home-made jam not... More

We only had time to stay one night last week but, we will be back. We found the place after a recommendation from a friend. The atmosphere was warm and our hosts were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was a great way to start the day of touring around this historic area.

We stayed at Varlet Farm for the first time this week on a visit to the battlefields and pay our respects to family who fell during 1914 - 18. The accomodation was very comfortable and welcoming in every respect reflecting its rating status. But totally above and beyond that, Barbara and Dirk were personable and engaging, and we left with... More

Varlet Farm was one of the best places I have stayed in a very long time. We were a group of 12 reseraching battlefield sites and cemetries of WW1 around Ypres. Location was fantastic, rooms were truly excellent. Hospitality and friendliness was second to none. Greeted with apple pie when we arrived, breakfast was excellent and the ability to make... More

What can I say that hasn't been said before. An excellent place to stay, warm and friendly welcome, with yes the apple pie and coffee. Rooms are well laid out and comfortable.
