B & B Ypres - De Akkerwinde

A great B&B Guest House set in a beautifully quiet and tranquil rural setting and close to everything!

De Akkerwinde

If you want bed and breakfast accomodation in a quiet backwater, yet central to all the Ypres Battlefields, the De Akkerwinde B&B is the place for you.

Situated on the opposite side of the road to Polygon Wood, in what was once no mans land, it is the ideal spot for both driving and cycling.
Being where it is, you can simply cross the road to walk through the now beautiful Polygon Wood where you will stumble upon many relics from WW1 before reaching the northern most point where the Cemetaries and Butte are.

My son Leo and myself had the pleasure of a four day stay here and were totally satisfied with the Room, the Service and the food.

Owners Patrick and Fanny are very approachable and only too pleased to offer their advice and knowledge about the surrounding area, probably telling you a few bits of history not found in the history books.

Here are some of the main features

Free off road Private Parking
Covered parking for Motorbikes and Bicycles
Guests only outside Terrace
Television in every Room
Childrens Play Area
Barbecue for your own use
FREE Lunch Parcel

I certainly recommend this B&B, the ideal starting point for your battlefield tours around Ypres.
