The Ypres Salient Battlefields, Belgium

A salient is an area of the battlefield that extends into enemy territory and surrounded on three sides. The Ypres Salient is centered around the ancient town of Ypres in Belgium (now known by its modern Flemish name — Ieper). It was formed after the German army was forced out of Ypres early on in the war to the higher ground that surrounds it on the North, East and South.

Our self catering cottages Grimminckhof and Kapelhuis are situated nearby the Ypres Salient, about 7 - 10 miles from Ypres.
