About this listing
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.
