Holiday review

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic - we had a great time at this lovely relaxing farm. Perfect family holiday with lots to do to keep the children entertained even on wet weather days. It is close proximity to Bruges and lots of other lovely towns incl Ostend, Sluis and Zeebrugge. But you wont want to travel too far as the animals at the farm will be waiting to greet you for some food and attention. Can't recommend it enough. If you dont want to use the car during your stay there are bikes to borrow and cycle paths everywhere.

Exceptional family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd visit to the farm and we've stayed in both cottages. My daughter rides horses and the whole family loves the farm animals. Kids collected eggs for breakfast every morning. Farmland views off the decks are idyllic. Marc has a variety of bikes that can be ridden into town. We rode into Damme, a great village by the canal with the ferry that can take you into Brugges. Proximity to Brugges is an obvious plus for exploring the beautiful city. Gent to the south is terrific as well. Marc and his wife are simply fantastic, very thoughtful, very helpful with riding or any other activity. Couldn't recommend this farm more for a family with kids who love animals. Outstanding, thanks Marc!

A superb place with lovely owners.

  • 5 of 5

The farm was lovely, loads of things to do there, the whole family loved it. There were toys for the kids and games for adults, lots of animals, two playgrounds so everyone had something to do as we had a great time. The owners are very nice and helpful, they will do everything to make your stay pleasurable.

Marvelous stay in the countryside right next to farm animals, but with all the amenities you could hope for.

The owner is beyond friendly and made sure we had everything we needed! Thank you and see you again!

Family Holiday August 2016

  • 5 of 5

I must admit, being a city girl myself, when I arrived at the cottage I was a little taken aback. The place is a haven for plants, animals and wildlife and I didn’t know where to start! Fortunately the generosity, hospitality and guidance of Marc and Rika put me completely at ease and even I was able to settle into life on the farm. The kids absolutely loved staying here. There is so much for children to do; feeding the chickens, riding the donkeys, petting the rabbits and cats, playing on the swings or the trampoline, puzzles, ping pong....there are bikes and carts to ride up and down the lane on. And then there’s the swimming pool. The weather we had was not fabulous but this didn’t stop the kids from playing in the pool every day, for hours! The cottage has a patio area with table and chairs for outdoor dining with views of the wonderful countryside. The cottage is a great location for nearby Brugge (15 mins away by car) and Ghent (30 mins away by car), both of which are worth a visit. The shops and a small supermarket are within easy reach of the cottage – I hear that quite a few visitors cycle down to the local village but if you drive its only a few minutes away. I would absolutely recommend the cottage to families with young children or anyone who enjoys an active outdoor lifestyle or simply wants to relax and enjoy the beautiful countryside.

Lovely farm-stay, perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

Only 20 minutes from Bruges and 40 minutes from Ghent, this is a lovely, simple cottage surrounded by horses. donkeys, rabbits, chickens and other animals at the end of a quiet lane in the countryside. We were a family of 4 with 2 children aged 4 and 6 and stayed for 4 nights. We bought bicycles, for which there was ample storage, and they have plenty you could use of you don't want to bring your own. Our children were offered rides on the horses and donkeys (but were too nervous -maybe next time) but they loved collecting eggs, playing with the kittens and feeding the rabbits. The small lanes are very safe for cycling and there is a lovely 15km route into Bruges.

We will definitely be back

The Bruges Farm Cottage, 8km from medieval Bruges, 15 minute by car, is one of those which are best described in terms of triumphant superlatives. Its special neighbours, the Flemish Coast and the world-famous Bruges are but one of the reasons why the Bruges Farm Cottage merits the hallmark of exclusivity.

The farm is also an ideal spring-board for rewarding excursions to the Belgian seaside (Ostend), the Flemish Hills, the 14-18 front area, Ypres and Diksmuide or Zeeland, the Dutch frontier is 5 miles away.

The Flemish art cities of Antwerp, Ghent, and Brussels only a 45 minute drive away.
