Bruge, Flanders and the Belgian coast - Woodside B&B

There are also many activities to do in the countryside surrounding our bed and breakfast.

Here are some suggestions :

Woodside Bed and Breakfast - Bruge (distance 15 min.)

A visit to Bruge, ‘Venice of the North’, is not to be missed. Whether in summer or winter, Bruge has something for everybody.
The museums and the beautiful medieval architecture are world renowned. Its many canals, alleys and squares are an absolute delight, especially for those with romance in mind.

Woodside Bed and Breakfast - Belgian coast (distance 20 min.)

The Belgian coast is within easy reach by car or even by bicycle for the more energetic amongst us.
Ostend is probably the best known seaside-resort but also a visit to Blankenberge with its Pier, the harbour of Nieuwpoort or the fashionable and stylish Knokke is truly recommended.
All have clean beaches, beautiful sand dunes and some wonderful terraces where you can sit, relax and watch the world go by. Especially in summer the coast offers a variety of entertainment.
Sea fishing trips are also available from Ostend and Nieuwpoort.

Woodside Bed and Breakfast - 'In Flanders Fields' Ypres (30 min.)

Whoever has read the touching poem 'In Flanders Fields' by John Mc Crae, might ask themselves : "Where is Flanders Fields ?"
In the region around Ypres and Diksmuide you will find the British, Canadian, American, Australian and German graveyards as reminders of the dreadful fighting in World War 1.
On the market square in Ypres you will find the museum ‘In Flanders Fields’, a constant commemoration of the ‘Great War’. You visit the trenches and learn more about the history of the First World War, the events in Ypres, the most important battles and the life of the soldiers on the front line.
