About us

Tim & Gill spent many years visiting the battlefields of France and Flanders, with the realisation that "you only live once" they decided to purchase a property in the Somme region of France.

That decision was to start a sequence of events that, after 9 years has culminated with them moving to the Somme and living the dream.

The search for a property started in 2002, having very definite requirements with regards to, location, size and future development potential; finally after 4 years they found Freeman Farm in the beautiful Somme village of Miraumont.

From 2006 - 2011 they have slowly renovated the property, it now has 3 bedrooms available for B&B with private dining and lounge facilities.

Phase 2 of the project is the conversion of the large barn.

Both Tim & Gill with Jon & Alison Haslock were founding members of the Somme branch of the Western Front Association, Tim is the chairman and Gill is a committee member.

Tim has been guiding groups large and small around the battlefields of France & Flanders for many years, sharing his passion and knowledge with anyone who wants to listen.

Of the 9 VCs won on the first day of the battle of the Somme, 1st July 1916, 4 of them were won by soldiers from the 36th Ulster Division.
