Amazing property and grounds, with an interesting and significant history. Very friendly and helpful owners who made sure that we were warmly welcomed and settled upon our arrival. The house is excellent for large groups, including stag and hen parties. There is plenty of room to spread out, and the large BBQ and fire pit were very welcome. There is lots of space outside in the garden and you are not overlooked. You are also not far from many of the local attractions, whilst there are shops close by within easy walking distance. There is also more than sufficient parking. Our group of 13 had a great stay and were sad to leave. Many thanks to Chantal for making our stay very enjoyable. Top marks.
Skindles is a great place to stay for a WW1 battlefield tour, not least as it was an officers club in WW1. The facilities are good, the rooms comfortable and the owners very helpful.
Chantelle and Peter could not have been more accommodating for our stay. A group of 23 on a battlefield study. Ideally located within the historic town of Poperinge. The accommodation has been recently upgraded and the rooms are of a high quality. The historic former officer's-mess is great value for money.
What a fabulous location, rooms accommodation extremely flexible. We were a party of 24 on a Battlefield Study, of Flanders.
The hosts were simply fantastic, making us all feel so welcome. Breakfast was fantastic, Hommel Beer delicious... but don't have too many!
Fire pit in the garden for late night chats... and more beer
The Canadian, Scottish and English members of my family, twenty of us making up three generations, met up for five days in August to honour the sacrifice of my Great Uncle Tom, at Passchendaele. Skindles was perfect. Like a home from home with great bedroom accommodation, dining room, bar room, lounge and large kitchen. We spent all the evenings outdoors in the back garden sitting round a fire until late, and we barbecued one evening.
Peter and Chantal were truly marvellous hosts. Friendly and very helpful. Chantal helped each morning with the terrific breakfasts.
Skindles is perfectly situated in Poperinge to visit the great WW1 Memorials. One evening we chartered a bus to take us to the evening ceremony at the Menin Gate in Ypres. We also visited Tyne Cot, Vimy Ridge and many other Memorials.
Another evening we booked a room in an excellent restaurant, just walking distance away, for the whole family to enjoy our last night together.
Chantal had numerous excellent suggestions for activities including hiring a pianist for an evening.
The local swimming pool was excellent for the children.
This was a truly memorable visit and we would love to go back to Skindles.
