The space

During your stay you overnight in a special Grondulow (max. 5 persons or max. 8 persons), a kind of earth house. A unique place in the meadow between grazing cows.

It's a real farm experience. You can help milking and feeding cows, enjoy your time with the tractor on the field, play with animals, gardening and survival across the farm.

Every Grondulow (Earthhouse) has his own livingroom with a view on the grazing cows.
If you stay in a 5-persons house you'll have 2 sleepingrooms, a private toilet and a bathroom with bath.
If you stay in a 8-persons house you'll have 3 sleepingrooms, a private toilet and 2 bathrooms with bath.

You can find Koe in de Kost in a little village called Heeten. It has his own bakery, supermarket and other basic facilities. You will love this place because it's full of nature (it's between the Veluwe and National Parc Sallandse Heuvelrug) and culture (less than 20km from historical cities like Deventer and Zwolle). Travelingtime from Heeten - Amsterdam is 1h20m.

PRICING: price per Grondulow. From 175 per night. In holiday season higher prices.

There's a lot of space inside and around the Grondulow. See also pictures!

LOVE. Our little family of four had the best stay here, and are honoured to be the first Australian family to stay. We've been on the road travelling for 11 weeks and stayed mostly with AirBnB hosts and this is probably our best! Highly recommended. We were staying mainly for the 'quirkiness' of the grass roofed bungalows so the farm stay was an amazing bonus. Our girls thrived and were so sad to leave. Two nights is not enough and we would be have stayed longer (4+ nights would be ideal) except we had another host waiting our arrival. A hugs thanks and best wishes to Farmer Franz and Trisha. Hope 'baby Tom' is doing well!

Es ist ein wunderbarer Ort für die ganze Familie, die Unterkunft ist sehr schön, und geschmackvoll puristisch eingerichtet, es gibt auf dem Hof selbst immer etwas zu erkunden, die Gastgeber sind sehr entspannt und hilfsbereit und immer sehr freundlich gegenüber allen Gästen.Auch wenn sie kein Deutsch sprechen gelingt es immer guten Kontakt zu haben,die unglaublich lieben Tiere , die sich alle Streicheleinheiten gefallen lassen, runden das außergewöhnliche Konzept ab, ich würde es allen empfehlen die Kinder haben.

We hebben het geweldig naar ons zin gehad! De huisjes zijn super ingericht en het is (niet alleen voor kinderen) erg leuk om met alle dieren te mogen knuffelen en het leven op de boerderij te ervaren!

Fijne lokatie, veel rust en ruimte. Woning was schoon, bedden opgemaakt. Keuken en badkamer modern. Leuke sfeer bij de boer en boerin. Karel, aka Pimpel is tijdens ons verblijf geboren. Dit was een erg bijzondere ervaring. Bedankt!

Eine ganz besondere Unterkunft mitten im Grünen, herzliche Vermieter und zutrauliche Tiere. Für uns und besonders für unsere Kinder ein wahres Paradies. Unser Haus war bestens ausgestattet und sehr gemütlich. Trotzdem haben wir, sofern das Wetter es zuließ, die Zeit im Freien verbracht, denn auf dem Bauernhof wurde es unseren Kindern absolut nicht langweilig. Die Abfahrt fiel am Ende sichtlich schwer, so dass wir versprechen mussten, wiederzukommen. Also bis zum nächsten Mal :)

My name is Loes Dijkhuis-Alferink and I am co-owner of Koe in de Kost, which are 6 holiday houses (earth houses) on a real farm. Graduated in fashion design and psychology, but got back to my roots: a farm in a local village. I love nature and would like to give everyone the possibility to enjoy a unique farm experience.
