Battlefied Tours Accommodation
Welcome to our 1920’s farmhouse, situated in the historic village of Flers in the heart of the Somme battlefields. The house has views across the fields to both High Wood and Delville Wood. These views encompass the New Zealand Memorial at Longueval and the ground where many Australians fought in the bitter winter of 1916-17. The property is ideally located, to make your visit to the battlefields of northern France and Belgium, a fulfilling experience.
