I love the house but i hate the smell of the cows &

  • 3 of 5

I loved the house from the inside clean and tidy but the smell in the place is unbearable because of the presence of cows and fertilizer next to the house and the presence of another family above us caused us a lot of inconvenience , and the washing machine away from the house.

Beautiful and well-appointed farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the farmhouse during a long weekend in the Netherlands. It was centrally located and allowed us a chance to explore so much of the country. We visited Delft, Gouda, Keukenhof, Kinderdijk, and Oudewater (which was only a 5-minute drive from the house). Marga was very accommodating and hospitable. Our young children especially enjoyed seeing the cows roaming by the farmhouse and petting the newborn calves. Such a great experience in a rural setting surrounded by nature and beauty.

Great house in a great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this home. The accommodations were outstanding, lots of room to accommodate 6 adults and really more as we only used 3 bedrooms.

There is a 3.5 p.p towel fee which is OK and renters are required to replenish the WC paper and laundry detergent which was disappointing.

Location was great as we were able to rent bikes and take daily trips around the area. The weather was great too.

One bonus is the fact that every day the cows would come say hello as they walked back from the fields. Very fun.

Thank you for sharing your home so others could enjoy.

Wonderful visit!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, nicely decorated and it had everything we could have possibly needed. Marga was so sweet and it was a joy to relax on her property. The cows were very entertaining and at the same time it was so peaceful. Great location with plenty to do. Not far from Amsterdam, Gouda or other tourist destinations. I would recommend this to anyone!

Luxurious holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We are four couples travelling together and spent a week in Holland in our MG cars to enjoy the tulips, and what a treat we had in using this holiday home in Willeskop, South Holland.

Marga our host was very welcoming and has finished this holiday let to a very high standard, lovely fixtures and fittings throughout and it is in a lovely location with plenty to see and do both at the farm and in the surrounding area.

Having our own facilities was really important when with friends and this is provided very well with each bedroom being large and spacious with our own shower room attached, beautifully decorated and very clean.

The only little niggle was the lack of a large oven or barbecue, we like to relax and eat together after a day out and although we did manage, having a bigger oven or being able to cook over a barbecue would have made preparing meals a little easier.

We visited Keukenhof, Utrecht, Oudewater, Amsterdam and Gouda and also enjoyed the local nature reserve which is located 5 minutes walk from the house, a fun packed week in beautiful Holland.

We would recomend this home to all and hope to return sometime in the future to enjoy the location once again.

Thank you to the Hoogenbooms for a brilliant holiday.
