Welcome to Friesland.
The 'old' front side of our farm is a guest house where we look forward to receive you.
The farm was built in 1880 and has a renovated, new part at the backside where we live - as well as a historic front part where you can stay.
The guest house has a stylish interior and enough space, with a kitchen, a bathroom, a living room, a bedroom and another big room. We don't offer bed and breakfast, but of course there are some basics in the fridge when you arrive.
Internet is available, as is satellite TV and of course there's enough space to park your car.
The next farm is about 300 metres away. On clear nights, all the stars can be seen: staying here means you'll spend your night in a very peaceful environment.
Opposite the farm is a forest to go walking and next to the farm is a lake (which used to be a sea before the Dutch 'conquered the water'). There are great possibilities for biking and walking in the area.
We had a really great time at Erik's farmhouse. The place is really nice with lots of space and everything we needed was there. Don't expect a modern hotel-like place, this is a place with character and history. It's decorated in style with a love for 60's and 70's furniture, art books and old radio's. Erik was really help full and easy going.
The surroundings are beautiful with fields, forests and of course water (close to the IJsselmeer). You can enjoy the surroundings by foot, bike (Erik was so kind to lend his bikes to us) and car.
We highly recommend this place if your looking for a calm and quiet time in rural Fryslan.
We had a great time at Erik's place! The farm was really cosy and we had a lot of privacy. We'd enjoyed the quit surroundings, just by staring out of the window or walking through the forest or the fields. Erik was very hospitable and friendly! We certainly want to come back in the spring some time...
For the second time this year, we stayed at Erik's farm and we had a great time. This time, we took some friends with us. They loved the place as well. If you look for peace and quiet, this definitely is the place to go. Along with that, the house is really charming and has all the conveniences one needs. We love it!
A nice place to take a timeout with a special atmosphere and countryside of life.
Eric's farm is a wonderful special place to spend some time close to the nature, to the sea and let the soul relax.
Eric is very friendly, hospital and helped us alot.
He borrowed us bicycles - with which we went through forests (just next by), to the sea and to some small villages - a great way to move around and enjoy the countryside.
We were two people and the appartment was very huge and well equipped, we enjoyed sitting and reading hundreds of worldpress-magazines, playing piano and scrabble, cooking, taking a bath, reading and just let the time pass by.
Thanks alot for the pleasant stay, we will surely come back again one day.
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
If you are looking for hotel service, this is not the place for you. HOWEVER, if you are looking for an experience in RURAL Friesland farmhouse living, this is the spot.
Eric is very nice and can help you find spots to enjoy in the area.
We did not get a chance to do a bike ride, but please try to do that. LOTS AND LOTS of bike riding roads.
I surly enjoyed the calming stay, after being in Amsterdam busy busy busy.
We needed a a few days to chill... And chilling we did! What a lovely place, so quite, so pretty. Erik is a wonderful host and the farm house has enough books to keep reading forever.
It's my second stay with Erik and Jolanda within a very short period. What more can I say?
Well: I just love this place with all its lovely rooms, the garden and above all: the freedom. This was probably not my last stay!
Large farmhouse with plenty of room to relax.
The farm is set in glorious wetland area cris-crossed by numerous ditches.
The free bikes available allowed us to bowl along deserted roads away from tourist crowds.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
