The space

Our place is a beautifully renovated family farmhouse near Lochem, Gelderland. It is a perfect place to relax with a group of friends and/or family while getting away from city-stress in the peaceful surroundings of the Dutch countryside.

It is situated near pittoresque cities as Lochem (10 min), Zutphen and Deventer (15/20 min) and only a short 30-min ride to the famous Kroller Moller Museum. There is also plenty to do around the farm itself, such as bike tours and walks in the beautiful surroundings. The small towns of Ampsen and Almen are nearby, as is the castle & grounds of "Huis Verwolde". Laren itself is a small town with everything you need including a supermarket, bakery, and cafes and restaurants, just ten minute walk from the house.
At a 2-minute walk there is a public swimming pool and a tennis course, and for the golf-lovers: at a ten-minute ride you will find one of the finest golf courses in the Netherlands, "The Lochemse".

The house itself has room for up to 8 adult guests (4 couples), with each their own bed (upon request extra beds can be provided for children or extra adults). We have two bathrooms, 3 toilets, a large kitchen, living room and dining room. Outside we have a nice terrace and plenty of space to play and have bbq's etc. Upon request you can use the guesthouse next to the main house, suitable for a couple (& bathroom with shower and toilet). There is a trampoline for the kids and plenty of games and sports. In the garage we also have bikes (children as well as adult) which are available to the guests.
On the grounds there is a tiny forest, a meadow in front and back (often occupied by horses and sheep) and a garden that goes around the house and stretches far to the east. The property sits on 1.2 hectares of land.

You can easily reach the farm by car. It is +/- 70 min drive from Amsterdam.

The house is very special, in a quiet area, big garden with horses, lovely for kids. In a 2 minute drive there is a center with supermarket, bakery and restaurants. The kitchen is fully equipped. Pamela is very nice and helped us with any question we had.

This converted historic farmhouse is an idyllic getaway for a family holiday in the beautiful Dutch countryside. I felt like I was living in a Jane Austen novel or Van Gogh painting but with all the comfort of WiFi & modern amenities! There were 11 of us from the U.S.A. and Canada who met for a family reunion and re-discovery of our Dutch heritage. There was plenty of room for us all to gather together around the table in the Great Room or find our own little nook in the garden. We loved eating breakfast outside and riding the bikes. The bathrooms were modern and it was nice to be able to do laundry. We also appreciated the games, the table tennis which we set up outside for our Dutch visitors to enjoy, and the "gezellig" (cosy) seating arrangements. Our hosts were very friendly, helpful and generous - it was a wonderful vacation in a very picturesque setting.

We had the most awesome family reunion at the farm house. There was plenty of space for the 11 members of our family, the beds were very comfortable. The house was cozy and felt like a home. The dining room table was enormous and easily seated the whole family for extended meals together. We spent so much time in the garden, children on the trampoline, the adults playing petanque or relaxing on the plentiful garden furniture. The house came with 4 adult bikes, plenty of children's bikes and we easily hired more from Goosen's in town. Town was a short ride away with a good supermarket and bus stops. Lochem was a 7-9km ride away and is such a charming little town. The countryside was incredibly pretty and we had lots of lovely bike rides. Annette was the perfect hostess, meeting us and taking us to the house, showing us where the shop was and even helping us to take our first load of groceries home in her car. We managed very well without a car after that. I would recommend this house for large family gatherings, it is the ideal; spot.

Once you have decided in what region of the Netherlands you would like to stay, I highly recommend reserving this wonderful authentic Dutch farmhouse in Laren ( province of Gelderland) which offers you superb accommodation for your extended family. It has all the modern amenities in a historic setting, beautiful outdoor sitting areas, bikes in the shed and the lovely village within walking distance for your shopping needs at Plus or a visit to the various good restaurants or snackbar. . There is so much to see and do in the immediate environment or you can lounge with a book under the old chestnut trees!

This is the best place you could stay at! My family was so unhappy I didn't book it for longer! If you get the opportunity, take it!!

Delightful property in charming surroundings. The peace and quiet was very welcome and riding the bikes to the bakery in the morning is what holidays are all about! Would thoroughly recommend a stay here!

The Dutch countryside around Laren and Lochem is one of the most beautiful, peaceful places that our family has ever been. To go from the busy atmosphere of Amsterdam to the farmhouse is such a treat! Our family has been to the farmhouse two different times. Both stays were relaxing and restorative. The house itself is perfect. It has so much character and you can tell that a lot of wonderful history has taken place there. The property is also pristine. There is plenty of room for children to run and play. The large, open green spaces paired with the trees make it a delight for kids coming from the city. There are also some very nice horses next door that our children enjoy petting and feeding. We highly recommend this farmhouse. The owners have been wonderful and easy to work with. The price is more than fair as well. Our family has enjoyed our stay, and we hope to get another chance to stay sometime in the future. Many fond memories that we will never forget!
