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 space

The cottage is situated on large private property, therefor maximum privacy.

There are three bedrooms with enough beds for 4-5 guests: The first bedroom has a box spring bed for two (160x200 cm), the second has a cupboard bed for two (140x200cm) and there is an en-suite bedroom for one. All rooms are equipped with closets and all beds are made before arrival.

In the bathroom is a spacious walk-in shower and a toilet and sink.
There is a fully equipped open kitchen; it has a 4 burner gas cooker, a microwave/oven, dishwasher and a large fridge freezer.

Adjacent to the kitchen is the dining and living room. The dining table sits six people and is situated in front of a large window. You can enjoy a spacious view over the meadows and plenty of daylight there. The living part has a 3 seater, armchair, coffee table and tv cabinet (TV, DVD & radio).

WiFi available throughout the cottage. Central heating makes this a cosy place to stay, even during winter.

In the garden of approximately 1000 m2 are a swing, jack ladder, seesaw, mini-trampoline and sandpit surrounded by wonderful old trees.

Parking is possible near the cottage. The cottage is situated at a dead-end street. The forest, adjacent to the cottage, is very well suited for a morning- of afternoon stroll.

Geertjen was very prompt and preceis with all information regarding the house. She also gave interesting hisotry of the surroundings as well as great tips for exploring. The house is far above exoectations, with every possible need accounted for in terms of comfort as well as vacation pleasures such as games and bikes. This is a beautiful area of the Netherlands having the opportunity to use bikes and walking paths to discover it made lovely memories!

What a wonderful place. My wife and I and 2 kids stayed for a few days in this lovely cottage. The area is spectacular and the home is cozy and charming. The host Ms Oudhof was delightful and helpful. We look forward to going back.

Great place to stay. Right next to an old manor with beautiful romantic gardens to walk and a restaurant for your lunch. You can stroll right across. The cottage has everything: wifi, good kitchen, comfortable beds. The extras in the shed are great: bicycles (for rent), small trampoline and "stelten". In the garden is a nice swing on a tree. The meadow around the cottage has cows. One of them gave birth which was a great experience. For Pokemon Go fans: you can catch a lot of rare Pokemon around this cottage.

The house is extremely comfortable, one hour drive from Amsterdam, located in cute village and it is surrounded by green grass fields and everything that a great country side can offer. Geertjen was most welcoming and took care of us in extraordinary fashion. Supermarket is 1.5 Km away and you can get there with bicycles that can be rented in the house. Hardervijk is a nice small town 10 min away with many restaurants some of which with Michelin stars. so in short it is a real gem!

This is a great place to stay. Just like walking in to a home, fully equipped with everything you need. Very nice atmosphere, spotlessly clean and a lovely environment. Good heating for on a cold winter's day. Geertjen is a wonderful hostess! Very friendly and helpful! Certainly a place to come back to - would love to come back in the summer and relax here for a bit longer. A perfect home away from home! Thank you Geertjen!

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.
