On a unique location, in the Green Heart of the Netherlands, on the edge of Alphen aan den Rijn, a splendid cottage was recently built and opened. The cottage is cozy and picturesque, decorated in country style; a place to enjoy and to relax. Situated nearby the windmill, you can see the windmill to one side and the beautiful polder landscape to the other side, where in summertime, cows and sheep graze outside. The cottage is surrounded by 3 terrasses.
The cottage is adjusted for 4 persons, of course less is also possible. An extension up to 6 persons is possible by use of one extra bedroom, or up to 8 persons by connecting the next door apartment, by way of an inside door. For more information about the extra bedroom or apartment, please ask your question on the 'Contact' page.
The cottage and the connected house are built in nostalgic country style, in perfect harmony with the windmill and the landscape. Lots of old materials have been used, like beams, bricks and the rooftiles of the former old cowshed.
On the groundfloor there is a cozy double bedstead (160 x 210 cm) and above of this bedstead it is possible for one or two children to sleep.This is an extra sleeping possibility, children don't have to sleep there. The space above the bed on top is limited because of the ceiling. All matresses are of good quality.
There is also a complete modern kitchen, a dining table and a cozy lounge area on the ground floor. There is also a bathroom with a shower and a seperate toilet.
On the first floor is a bedroom with two single beds. The boxsprings and mattrasses are of good quality. We have 'four season' wool duvets on all of the beds.
