  • The whole House has the atmosphere of the time. A very good film collage you bring, as it were, between the soldiers about a century ago. Remarkable Chapel under the roof. Near also authentic kill cells where prisoners (deserters) were locked before executed ... barely 100 years ago!!!

  • An atmospheric living museum, showing where WW1 troops came to find comfort and peace in the hell of the trenches. The birthplace of Toc H
  • Not much of a place, so many soldiers went up to the chapel you just had to go too. but going up to the top sent a cold shiver through me last time I felt like that was at the fort at Reims just walking around the outside as it was not open.
  • Not as interesting as expected. Much better places to visit around here if interested in ww1
  • Excellent welcome, charming accommodation and a good breakfast. This house is living history. Don't expect en suite but you are staying where the British soldiers stayed back from the front line up the road at Ypres. I, like them, will want to return here for another stay. Unlike them I will get the chance (God willing).
  • Fantastic warm welcome. A true privalige to be able to stay in a living museum.
