I have just visited Tim and Gills farm at Miraumont and had a 2 day battlefield tour. The accommodation is very good, extremely comfortable and clean. We had an evening meal each evening we stayed at the Farm and the food was lovely. as was the wine, beer and cider that flowed very generously. The breakfasts are continental and filling for the days tour. Tim conducts the tours and he tailors them for the visitor. He is extremely knowledgeable and quite clearly loves his chosen subject. This makes the tours of each battle site much more informed and interesting. the pace is as slow or fast as you like and we had 2 incredible days. I really cant recommend this farm or tour highly enough and will hopefully return in a couple of years for a tour of the Ypres area.
