Cottage ‘Aan de overkant’ is situated in countryside the Veluwe at the edge of a forest. An idyllic place near Castle ‘De Essenburgh’.
A cosy cottage with plenty of room (over 90 m2) for 4 (5 is possible) people and comfortably equipped.
The cottage is situated on large private property, therefor maximum privacy.

Ik woon elders in Hierden, dus niet " aan de overkant". Wel staat het huis op mijn geboortegrond nabij de boerderij waar ik ben opgegroeid.
Als geëmancipeerde vrouw van 70 jaar houd ik o.a. van klussen ;-].
Het buitenleven, de natuur, mijn kinderen en kleinkinderen zijn me zeer lief.
Ik lees graag literaire romans, maar met boeken van Nicci French, Karin Slaughter of Joanna Harris kun je me ook opsluiten
Films zoals Silence of the lambs, The English patient en Brokeback Mountain hebben bijzonder veel indruk op me gemaakt.
Als vervoermiddel gebruik ik meestal de fiets of de trein.
Met enige regelmaat loop ik vele kilometers door bos, heide of weilanden.
