Situated on a large parcel of land offering privacy and solitude in the heart of a small village, the cottage is ideal for two to four adult guests. There are two large bedrooms; one upstairs and one downstairs. There is also a smaller bedroom upstairs that overlooks the back field. Children will also be charmed by the home's storybook appearance and the ample outdoor spaces which include a large stand of trees, a brook and a large field perfect for games of tag and football; all of this and it is still only a 20 minute drive to one of Holland's more cultural larger cities, Arnhem, site of many WWII monuments.
The internationally renowned museum, Kroller Müller, with its sculpture park and important collection of modern art is located just a bike ride away and features beautiful exhibitions along with ninety paintings and drawings by Van Gogh. Zutphen, a very idyllic and intact merchant town along the river IJssel, is where the clock has stopped as far as architecture is concerned but you can get a latte macchiato, a frappecino do your organic food shopping at the local market on Thursday and Saturday. By car, public transportation or on the bike this area of the Netherlands is famous for its forests, historic towns, farmland, horseback riding as well its proximity to culture and city life.
The cottage itself is set on a large parcel of land which functions as a green lung for the town. We want to preserve the area and the premises and look forward to welcoming guests who enjoy the classic ambiance of a cozy home with plenty of peace and quiet. As the manager of the property - and son of the owner - I can offer tailor-made cultural day trips or vacation plans according to your interests; whether you are drawn to contemporary culture, historic sites, or the justly famous Dutch design, craft and architecture, my wife and I look forward to recommending the best and the latest.
Our cottage offers modern amenities and some rusticity: a very comfortable kingsize bed, one bathroom with a shower, excellent heating, a flat screen tv and wifi of course. There is no dishwasher but the kitchen sink offers a lovely view of the woods which makes washing dishes a pleasure!
