Summer has started!
The cottage is situated on a small family estate, in beautiful forest, just outside a small village, in the largest nature area of The Netherlands. Due to its central location and proximity to motorways it is great for exploring the whole country whilst staying in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
The recently renovated cottage has been built in a style typical for the area and is tastefully decorated in a Dutch/English style. Although the cottage can sleep 6 people, we feel it is more suitable for 4 people. Nevertheless, the cottage is also cosy when you are with 2 people. There are 2 double bedrooms with box spring beds of 200*160cm and a sofa bed on the mezzanine of 140*200cm. The kitchen has all amenities, including a gas cooker with oven, large fridge, dishwasher and washer/dryer. Entertainment-wise it offers a wide screen TV, DVD and WIFI. The luxury bathroom has a bath, separate shower and separate toilet. Central heating, double glazing and a wood-burner make the cottage perfectly suitable in winter. You can buy wood from us or in the village.

The cottage is set in its own sunny private corner near the entrance of the estate and offers a lot of privacy. From the grounds you can walk directly into the forest or have direct access to the road into the village. The forest stretches for miles and miles. On the grounds there is another holiday cottage, a keepers cottage, several rustic cottages and stables and a country house where the owners live. All houses are set in such a way that they have complete privacy. Children can play on your own land surrounding the cottage, or in the forest at the back of the main house. You will share the land, which is completely fenced off to keep deer and wild boar out, with some animals. Apart from wildlife, you will meet our friendly dog Jasper, our 2 donkeys Sam and Frodo who love a cuddle, and Thomas the cat.

We live on site but aren't always around. Via the AirBnB messaging service, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) or text message, or telephone call we are always available.
Children are more than welcome. The land around the houses is fenced off that you don't have to worry about them all the time. It can be a great experience for children to interact with the animals. They can help take care of the donkeys if they wish. Children and donkeys are usually a great match. There often seems to be this natural understanding and instant love. We have also had several children who arrived with a fear of dogs but ended up as best mates with our dog who roams the property and guards against strangers. Children can safely play around your cottage or in the woods behind the country house (outside the fenced off area), but not around the other houses. It is a part of the world where children still play outdoors.
We make one double bed for every two guests. If you wish us to make more beds please let us know prior to arrival. There may be a small charge for this.
We love well behaved dogs and Jasper is always excited to meet new friends who he will leave alone if they don't warm to him. Dogs are welcome for an additional fee of 25 euros per stay (or per week if you stay for a longer period). Should you wish to bring more than one dog, please contact us first. Please ask us for our dog policy if you wish. In short your dog should not damage property, it is not allowed on beds and furniture, it should not inconvenience other guests and dog mess must be picked up.
If you stay for more than one week, we come and do a compulsory weekly cleaning of the cottage for 50 euros. This includes changing your bedding and towels.
The cottages are non smoking.
