Remembered Today:

Accommodation in Ypres


Recommended Posts

Firstly Happy New Year to one and all.

Secondly, can anyone recommend cheap accommodation in Ypres? Going over with a bunch of about 10 Scooter enthusiasts the first weekend in May. Absolutely dreading the ride over, bearing in mind these machines will be doing anything between 45-50 mph. Leeds to Dover, Dover to Dunkirk. I think a few sore bums will be the order of the day.

Thirdly, does anyone know of a book which can give me sights to see each day?

Mant thanks.

As Mark says, the Holts guide book is a good self-drive guide. As is Rose Coombes' Before Endevours Fade, now in its 12th edition. You may wish to contact Peter Morris, an expat who runs the "Rum Jar" B and B here in Ypres. He can accommodate 10 people. Here is some info:

I know Peter, and his prices are very reasonable.

Typical, just typical, phoned Peter at Rumjar, he had no vacancies and then explained that the weekend we are going coincides with a Belgian bank holiday and therefore Ypres will be fully booked. He gave me a few websites to try and guess what, bingo. I have managed to secure a 10 man holiday home in the Ypres market square just outside the cloth hall at a cost of 580 euros for a long weekend!!!!! Thank you again forum members for your assistance, and Peter, if you go on this forum, big thanks to you.

PS. If anyone is interested the website I used was:

www.westhoek.be ( then click on toerisme)
