We were a party of 14 and could not have had a better stay in any 5-star hotel. Dirk and his family are the most welcoming generous people anyone would wish to meet. Their warm hospitality made our visit to Belgium extra special. Dirk's apple pie is to die for and was so welcome on our late arrival after a long day travelling (he even let me have his recipe!), and his vast knowledge of the area and recommendations of places to visit were invaluable. It is in a fantastic location in the Belgium countryside but is near to many places of interest and we enjoyed a lovely walk to Tyne Cot Cemetery which is very close by. The only thing that Dirk seems to be unable to do for his guests is to arrange for sunshine, but even if it's raining, anyone who stays as Varlet Farm will want to go back again and again - none of our party (which included 5 teenagers!) wanted to leave. Thank you so much Dirk.
