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.

A glass half full couple, with a zest for life, passion for their business and a desire to ensure that their guests have the break that they dreamed of.

Tyne Cot Cemetery is the largest for commonwealth war graves in the world, it has over 11,800 graves and the memorial to the missing contains the names of over 33,000 soldiers of the commonwealth plus a further 1,176 New Zealanders.
