Liz and Jon Look forward to Welcoming you at their home on the Ieper Salient.
Just 10 mins drive from Ypres and 5 mins drive from Poperinge.
It takes just 1hr from Calais and 40 mins from Dunkirk.
We are situated in the lovely, peaceful, rural countryside of the Ieper Salient. Ideal for a lovely relaxing couple of days away or a stop off point to other parts of Europe. Bring your Bicycles or Rent them locally to take in the country air. A welcome drink on arrival or good British Cup of Tea.
We are in an ideal situation for those who are interested in the history of WW1 - Frederick Ives of the Worcester Regt was Shot at Dawn here, Double VC Noel Chavasse and Batman Private Rudd are buried at the Brandhoek Military Cemetery 2 mins drive away or 15 mins walk. We are within easy reach of Passchendale (Tyne Cot), The Somme One Hour including Vimy Ridge and Arras. The lovely archictecture of Ypres, Brugge, Ghent. Love Cycling and Walking. We are also near to the lovely Market Town of Poperinge with its lovely Cafe's, Walks, Talbot House (resting place of the soldiers in WW1), Hop Museum and also not far from St Sixtus Abbey where they brew some very good beer, (you can order a belbus there from the tourist office)..

The Last Post is also sounded the First Friday in every month at Ploegsteert Memorial to the Missing at 19.00 hrs prompt!
As we are situated in the country, I am willing to take you and pick you up from Ieper or Poperinge to take the stress out of driving and have a drink on the Market Squares.

I am also researching the Mould/s & Mold family names who fought and died in World War 1 and World War 2. Also, those who made it home. If anyone has any information they can share and any photos I would be extremely grateful.
