“Our group loved the uniqueness, history, and functionality of Skindles!”
Reviewed 30 July 2018 for a stay in June 2018

We had college students and faculty who stayed here for three nights as part of a WWI tour of France and Belgium. Not only was the location wonderful to visit sites in and around Ypres, but also it was an easy drive further to Ghent and/or Bruges. We used every room and loved each of them, plus we made regular use of the barbecue and fire pit out back. The staff was fantastic and provided an incredible breakfast spread every day, answered all of our questions, and generally made us feel welcome. Excellent experience!

“Wonderful accommodation for a large group”
Reviewed 14 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

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.

“Great place to stay for a WW1 battlefield tour”
Reviewed 23 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

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.

“Perfect for Group Travel”
Reviewed 21 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

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.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 19 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

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
