Great place. Dirk and his daughter Barbara run a terrific B&B - friendly, clean and very comfortable. This is on the battlefields for those touring, quite near Tyne Cot but a drive to Ypres. Comfortable, clean rooms and everything you need at an honest price

Fantastic accommodation and hospitality. Dirk & Barbara made you feel at home and were most obliging,friendly and very informative about the area especially as the farm is situated in the Passendale Battlefield. Would not hesitate to go back in the not too distant future.

Dirk and Barbara are extremely helpful and knowledgeable with regards to the Great War in the area, places to eat and also all the roadworks and cycle rallies that pop up from time to time. The rooms are large and comfortable... More

Our third visit to Varlet farm. This time with our wives. Barbara and Dirk are amazing. Friendly, knowledgable and helpful. The rooms are immaculate and everything is done to ensure that your stay is comfortable and you get to see all you want. It's so nice to meet people who just have time for you. Not our last visit.

Third stay - very high standard accommodation, everything you need thoughtfully provided and helpful hosts. Plentiful breakfast and encouraged to make own packed lunch - perfect for visiting battlefields. Will be back again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Varlet Farm on a recent visit to the WW1 sites of Passchendaele and can't wait to go back to visit all the places we couldn't squeeze in! Dirk and his daughter Barbara couldn't have done more to feel us welcome and at home. The rooms have everything you need and are very comfortable -... More
