My friend Miranda and I visited Belgium for the 1st time to go to our friend Sarah’s wedding.
Sarah (a local) booked the B&B for us, so we had no idea what it would be like.
We arrived quite late (11.30pm) and were greeted with a warm welcome and some much needed refreshments. Our hosts were quite excited to meet us, I think we were their first visitors from Scotland. Luckily our host spoke a little English and Miranda spoke a little French.
Mirada had the “Chambre Coquelicots” the poppy room with the double bed and I had the adjacent Lavender room with the single bed, but I benefited from an orthopaedic pillow. I slept like a baby. There were many thoughtful details in the rooms (including plenty of chocolate).
We had our own key as we knew we would be very late coming back from the wedding.
The breakfast was excellent, fresh pastries from the boulangerie, cheese, saucisson, eggs and so on.
Our host was aware it was our first visit to Belgium and eager to introduce us to some local foods like the jelly/jam made from reduced pairs and plums, local honey and a sort of rice pudding tart.
We enjoyed a bit of time sitting outside in the garden, stroking their Donkeys and visiting the sheep and goats.
We agreed that Ferme Du Petit Breuil was excellent value for money, and our host overly generous even to the extent of seeing us off with some snacks for the plane.
We had a lovely stay.
