  • Immaculately kept, beautiful surroundings and very poignant.
  • Hard to find but well worth a visit- very well kept.
  • Very moving and touching...set in calm surroundings.
  • A small and well hidden cemetery. Here are mainly English soldiers, but also some from Australia, Canada, France and Germany. It is not super-busy what makes the experience even more intense. I was in the afternoon and I was just 1 hour only on the cemetery present. Nice and quiet. Very worthwhile. Parking is available next to the road.
