Probably the best self-catering holiday that we've ever had.

The cottage has everything that one needs for a holiday. (True, it doesn't have an oven, but you don't need an oven!) It is quiet, despite being so close to Brugge, with lovely views across the fields. If you have children with you they, and probably you, will be entranced by the many friendly animals. Bicycles are freely available for all of the family.
The cottage is ideally situated for visiting many places such as Ghent, Brussels and the sandy beaches of the Belgian coast.
The cottage, and the farm, have many extra features that enhance your holiday such as the games room, complete with computers for your use, a good wifi connection and a nice outdoor pool for hot Summer days.
As for the owners, Marc & Rica, one could not hope for more friendly and genial hosts.

We booked a week, we wish that we had booked a fortnight. We strongly recommend this holiday cottage.

Excellent family holiday destination

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay at the farm cottage was far too short to enjoy all that it had to offer. Of all of our destinations in Europe so far, our two children (7 & 11) will remember the cottage as the most enjoyable of all. The highlight of our brief stay was the donkey riding and feeding the wide variety of animals that are resident on the farm. The go cart races to the red letterbox were also very memorable.
Although we arrived late in the evening we were given a very warm welcome by the owner Marc. He provided us with a wealth of information about Bruges and was incredibly helpful.
I would recommend the farm cottage to anyone who wants to get away and enjoy a relaxing, entertaining and very hospitable holiday experience.

Apple Cottage family fun

  • 4 out of 5
Thanks to the owner's excellent directions, we arrived at this delightful farm within 90 minutes of leaving the Eurotunnel. We were immediately greeted by Marc and Rica with a smile and an offer of a drink. This set the tone for a very friendly and welcoming stay in a peaceful setting, surrounded by nature and close to everything we wanted.

The cottage itself is spacious for a family of four and has everything we needed to cook, clean and entertain ourselves (we even managed to do our washing as we went along, saving us from this chore when we returned home!). Some of the decor is a little dated but this adds to the charm of the farm setting (this is the only negative aspect in my view).

As well as donkeys, rabbits, sheep and chickens, we were lucky enough to have kittens to fawn over. The donkeys were very friendly and Marc was happy to take us out for rides whenever we wanted.

The pool is quite small but was perfect to dip into to cool down from the blazing sunshine.

There is a garage full of bikes and carts to keep kids and grown ups of all shapes and sizes happy and fit.

There is a games room for rainy days (we didnt use as a consequence of 7 days of glorious sunshine) with plenty of toys and games and activities.

In the garden is a play area with climbing frames and a trampoline.

Great places to visit nearby include:

Knocke-Heist to the North - fabulous beaches with a mediteranean feel.
The Atlantic Wall in Oostende to the North-West - a great insight into the German war effort and fun to explore
Bruges - charm and chocolate - what more could you want?

Like many before us, we were already planning our return trip before we left and I can see this becoming a regular visit in future.

Top tip - bring carrots for the animals!

Very family-friendly, clean, cosy farm cottage

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed here as a family of 4 (2 boys aged 7 and 10) for three nights in a very cold April. The cottage was great! Very warm and cosy, well-equipped and brilliantly arranged for children - bikes, go-karts, games room, farm animals... Everything they could possibly want. The only trouble we had was tearing our boys away so that we could go and visit some of the surrounding towns. Bruges is lovely and our visit was made easier by the time and care the owner took in giving us hints and tips. We also enjoyed Gent. The local cycle network is very comprehensive and we enjoyed some great off-road cycling along the canals from Damme to the Dutch border and back into Bruges and from Lovendegem into Gent. A great holiday base and a very welcoming owner!

Recomendable 100%

  • 5 out of 5
Hemos estado 2 semanas alojados, y se nos han hecho cortas. Fuimos con nuestros hijos de 5 y 3 años y 6 meses de edad.

Recomendamos la estancia por la comodidad de la casa y la infraestructura que los propietarios han conseguido: paseos en burro, bicicletas para todas las edades y en perfecto estado de funcionamiento, sala de juegos, arenal para los pequeños, columpios, cama elástica para saltar, piscina, barbacoas, zona de pícnic, contacto con los animales y seguro que se nos olvida algo más.

Magnífica también la terraza de la casa para comer o deleitarse con los burros, dos ovejas y poni mientras están en el precioso prado que hay.

Destacamos también la atención recibida por los propietarios, disponibles 24 horas, dando sabios consejos, y enseñándonos la granja el primer día para poderla disfrutar a tu antojo, manteniéndola además siempre en perfectas condiciones. La limpieza es inmejorable.

Muy importante también que tengan de todo para los pequeños, y no solo una amplia selección de juguetes, sino cuna, trona, bañera de plástico, hamaca para bebés, cochecito para bebés, cochecito para cuando son más mayores (si viajas en avión te evitas llevártelos desde casa), barandilla para las camas...

También nos gustó el hecho de que estuviera alejada de carreteras, por lo que los niños pueden jugar sin peligro de tráfico, para tranquilidad de los padres.

Resumiendo, un lugar perfecto por su localización e infraestructura para conocer Brujas y alrededores (si convencéis a los niños para salir de la granja), y para pasar unas maravillosas vacaciones en familia.
