As our intension was to have a quit place to stay where we could come and go as we wanted. Also we wanted to stay centralised between different seen worthy places it was the ideal to stay. We had not at all interference and were very helpful and friendly
We stayed at these suberb cottages over the weekend of 5th - 7th September 2014. We booked cottages number 2 and 3. We were a party of 11 undertaking visits as members of a Royal Naval Reserve unit to the battlefields and nearby memorials as well as the Menin Gate Ceremony in nearby Ypres, and these cottages and their location suited us perfectly. They are set in the heart of farmland, and a little off the main roads, but are only about a 10 minute drive into the nearest village / town. Very very quiet and superbly furnished. The cottages are very roomy, very light and very comfortable. The shower room was a dream for me. Bedding can be hired for 10 euros per person. The kitchen area is open plan and has all the appliances you need and more. Bedrooms are a decent size, and my bed was very comfortable. No complaints from any of my group in regards to the beds or the facilities. The owners of these cottages made us very welcome from the moment we arrived, and were always on hand if needed. They live in the house at the end of the cottages, and this is separate from the cottages and not attached to them. I suspect that the cottages were former farm buildings and have been superbly converted. Excellent location for getting into France or to the nearby towns of Poperinge and Ypres. Roads in the immediate vicinity are narrow and unlit, so be aware of oncoming farm vehicles, especially in the evenings or later. Only downside, and this has nothing to do with the accomodation or the owners, but due to being set in farmland, there are numerous mosquitos around, but if you follow the advice from the owners, and keep the windows and doors shut when out, this is not a problem. They even provide fly spray in the cottages if required to use. I can not recommend these cottages highly enough, and I for one will definately be returning.
