This year is the second time we have stayed at Huttenest. We first visited two years ago on route to Netherlands from Manchester. This year we stayed one night on our way to Austria and again on the way home. Isabelle and Patrick are wonderful hosts who go to a lot of trouble to make sure you are comfortable, happy and laughing! Patrick and Isabelle have a truly international welcoming style, speaking many languages between them. Patrick can tell jokes, keep you entertained, I counted on one occasion, in five different languages. Patrick’s humour is a perfect complement to the amazingly luscious breakfast that is provided each morning. A very wide selection of fruits, cereals, bread, cheeses, hams, yoghurts, juices, jams and spreads. The pancakes are hot and delicious and finish off a healthy breakfast with a great treat. The rooms are lovely: very clean, spacious and tastefully decorated both in the house and in the annex. There is a fridge, (stocked with a selection of beers, wines and soft drinks), a microwave and kettle. There are also sitting areas in the rooms to have a late supper or afternoon snack. The first time we stayed we took our bikes. There are plenty of excellent cycle routes nearby. Getting to and from the centre of Bruges was very easy. Isabelle is an excellent font of information and will provide maps, information both local and much further afield, timetables and suggestions on what to do. We were easily able to store our bikes at Huttenest either in a garage or in the garden depending on the weather. The grounds and gardens are really well maintained, relaxing and beautiful. There are deer and sheep in the fields adjacent to Huttenest, last time there were ostriches too. We are planning on visiting again in the next year or so, probably for a week as there are plenty of things to do nearby.
Thank you once again Isabelle and Patrick for a lovely, comfortable and relaxing stay.
