About Tijl Waelput
Hagepoorter is a word from the Middle Age and means "citizan of a city who lives outside of that city". It is a wink to ourselves. We have been living in Brugge for many years where we runned first hotel Botaniek and afterwords hotel Jan Brito .
Tijl Waelput purchased this Farmhouse in 2010

Just what we were looking for
This is the first time we have used HomeAway and of course that meant we were a little apprehensive about what we had booked. How wrong we were -this property is amazing. We booked this around a year ago and paying via PayPal was super easy plus the messaging facility with the owner was very convenient. The owner replied every time very quickly and wrote superb English.
On arrival at the property, after travelling over on the Eurotunnel, we were 30mins early but that was no issue. The owners husband was there (sorry forgot your name) who was very welcoming and again his English was outstanding. He showed us around the property and in case we didn’t recall all the information there was a folder with all the bits and bobs plus extra info. He also gave us a few maps of the area which were helpful even with a SatNav.
The property itself was extremely tidy and clean. We have nothing bad to say about it. The beds were big and comfy but nothing of note - each double bed had 2 single duvets something which is very strange to us English but not a problem. In the bedrooms the windows were all remote controlled, which is very fancy, plus they close if rain is detected.
As we visited in October the weather wasn’t at its best so we did have to turn on the heating which worked a treat. Another bonus for us was the farm animals in the grounds. There were two tiny ponies and a flock of sheep, all of which were quiet and were a pleasure to watch. The owners are happy for the animals to be fed but we didn’t partake in this.
All in all this was brilliant, just what we were looking for. We will definitely be looking to book again. One last thing though, there are three properties here in one farm house. We had the two bedroom one which is on the far right.
Thanks for taking the time to write such a detailed review. We opted for single duvets, even on the double beds, because some nationalities prefer this. So, couples won't quarrel with each other because one of them pulls the duvet towards him during the night ...
Easy to find, great location for touring, very helpful and friendly hosts.
the accommodation is great, the setting is lovely and the hosts were very helpful! thanks
Beautiful setting and lovely hosts
The welcome to our holiday home was lovely and were given a complete rundown of the things in the house ie the blinds etc! The only thing I would say is take a fan with you plus some mosquito deterrent in the summer as we were bitten alive and didnt sleep too well.
Unfortunately we had to curtail our stay due to family problems.
Modern, clean comfortable apartment.
Friendly greeting and lovely property. Perfect area for cycling and visiting the local towns. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, love to go back.
Es ist ein ausgesprochen charmantes, sehr hochwertiges Anwesen mit ganz reizenden Vermietern.
Wir haben uns in dem modernen, sehr hochwertig ausgebauten Haus 4 sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Anlage ist sowohl was Ausstattung, Architektur und Aussenanlage betrifft toll. Als Ausgangspunkt zu Brügge und Ostende perfekt. Auch sind die Vermieter sehr sympatisch und hilfsbereit. Mit Hund überhaupt kein Problem, im Gegenteil! Toll zum täglichen Spazierengehen mit Hund ist der Strand Bredene, das angrenzende Naturschutzgebiet am Dorf und das kleine Waldstück direkt um das Anwesen rum. Auch können wir den Einkauf im Baliehof nur empfehlen. Wir werden bestimmt bald wieder kommen.
