A 70th birthday celebration and memories to last a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

This venue was perfectly suited for a group of 10 friends to gather to celebrate a special birthday. In addition, the farmhouse provided a wonderful venue for a 20+ person gathering for one of our days there. The location in regards to town was ideal. The amenities within the farmhouse were more than sufficient. Guests should note that there is not a 'proper' oven, and plan accordingly. Additionally, two of the bedrooms (a total of 5 single beds) are located up a flight of stairs. There are plenty of toilets to accommodate large groups, but the showers are shared by several (also just a note for guests to be aware of... we made the situation work with ease in our case). The fireplace is not currently available due to insurance issues... guests should also plan accordingly. The outdoor area and the dock right on the lake make for stunning sunrises! We would return in a heartbeat!!!!! The town of Nieuwkoop is charming and has several markets and restaurants to take advantage of. Please do plan on attending the Saturday market in the town center as well! And we made great use of all the bikes available on the bike path across the lane from the house.

Wonderful Old Farm House of Nieuwkoop

  • 5 of 5

This summer our family had a chance to spend 3 weeks at this wonderful old Farm House. This home was perfect for our big family, with enough room to spare. The house had a lot of old world charm and with a dock that is located on the lake right at the end of the backyard. We did some fishing, swimming and boating daily. The children found so many things to do and play in the backyard. We all enjoyed watching the sail boat races happen right in the backyard. One evening we had a touring boat pick us up from the deck in the backyard and we toured around the lake and canals and they dropped us off for dinner at Jachthaven, Thijsterman. This restaurant is a great outdoor and indoor place right on the lake marina in Nieuwkoop. This is a picturesque old village with some great restaurants. We hope that someday we can do this again. There is so much to see and to do just around Nieuwkoop. Also it is only about 45 minutes to an hour away from Amsterdam or Den Haag. The Farm House was the right place to spend our wonderful 2013 vacation with our family, and close enough to the rest of our family and friends for us to see them.

Hope to be back again soon.

Lovely old house, perfect for families

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our 10-days vacation at the Old Farm. The place is as lovely as in the pictures, and it is ideal for families with children. Very well equipped and located 5 mins from village center, where there are several restaurants and supermarkets. Location is also ideal for most tourist attractions in the Netherlands - 30 mins to Amsterdan and Hague, an hour to Efteling etc.

Floris was extremly friendly and helpful, both before our arrival and during the visit.

A few minor things need to be pointed out in advance but should not in any way stop you from renting the Old Farm --

Second floor is acessible only by steep stairs, which may be difficult for young children or older people. There is no oven, only a toaster-oven, so consider it when menu-planning. Last, since you are by the lake, there are a lot of insects and bees, be prepared.

All in all, we highly recommend the Old Farm as a charming, comfortable vacation home for families.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, Thank you for your kind words, I am glad that you enjoyed your stay in our Old Farm. We always try to make the stay of our guests as enjoyable as we experience it ourself. This farm is our family holiday house and we are staying many times with 10 persons, the oven although looking small can prepare 2 chickens or 2Kg of meat/fish. At your next visit I will be glad to show you how we manage. Lakes attracts insects, all our guests are fine about it; however good that you mentionned it for future guests. Thank you for taking the time to give us your positive feedback. Kind Regards, Floris

Uriges Bauernhaus mit schönem See

  • 4 of 5

Das Haus hat viel Charakter und ist sehr gut ausgestattet. Für Liebhaber von verwinkelten Ecken, ein bisschen Kitsch und Kleinkram - man entdeckt immer wieder Neues. Nichts für Menschen, die es blankpoliert und schlicht mögen.

Der See ist toll und trotz eher durchwachsenem Wetter haben wir das hauseigene Boot gut nutzen können. Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit!

Car: recommended

Nieuwkoop is a charming village in the middle of the marvelous area Groene HartÍ (Green Heart) between Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam and Utrecht. During the day you can visit these interesting cities , with their Museum with several Rembrandt's, Van Gogh's etc when you return to the house you can refresh yourselves while plunging in the lake from your own garden. Or you can choose for true lowland, make a tour around the lake with the bicycle, sailing boat, canoe etc In our region to go to the market we do not take the car, but the boat, or with the bicycle. Try it you will see that it is much more fun.
