This unique holiday farmhouse is at the centre of a residential area in Amersfoort The home is great for exploring Amersfoort and the surroundings with the children. The bedroom at the back not only boasts a play area for the children, but also doors that open out to your private terrace with adjacent animal enclosure. Here, you can watch the goats and chickens walk about each day.
Amersfoort Vathorst train station is an 8-minute walk away and you can be in the gorgeous, historic centre of Amersfoort in just a few minutes. Known for its Koppelpoort (medieval gate) and the church towers of Sint Joris and Lieve Vrouwe (St. Joris and Our Lady), a boat ride around this lovely city is sure to make an impression on you. Amersfoort also has a fantastic zoo.
There are also plenty of outings you can make in the area, for example to the Juliana Tower, the dolphinarium in Harderwijk, or Walibi Flevo amusement park.
Since the holiday home sits at the edge of the city, you can ride your bicycle into it along the Arkemheen polder. You can take a gorgeous cycling trip through picturesque towns like Nijkerk, Putten, Bunschoten-Spakenburg, and Zeewolde or past the lovely villas in the Gooi region, through towns like Laren, Naarden, Bussem, and Blaricum.

We had a lovely stay at De Kleine Broodheuvel. The house is perfect for families and my 8 year old loved the goats. It was hard to find at first as the address is a cycle path but fine once we realised that car access to the house was allowed.
The house is 10 minutes walk from a train station and we took the train to Amsterdam and Amersfoort. The train goes to Schipol airport so we could have come without a car. There are also good shops only 10 minutes walk away.
There are lots of things to do if you bring a car - cycle in De Hoge Veluwe on the free bikes, visit the Kroller Muller gallery, go to Amersfoort zoo which is very good, or the open air museum near Arnhem.
De Kleine Broodheuvel is a great base for a family holiday and I would recommend it.
We had a most enjoyable week in Holland. A lovely, spacious cottage,mperfect for our 2 small boys.
Very nice location outside of Amersfoort center. If you want a quiet, peaceful spacious property with very nice and accomodating owners this is your place. Be aware it will take you 15 minutes by car to get to the Hof or a 10 minute walk and 5 minute train ride to get there.
We enjoyed visiting Amersfoort, Utrecht and the surrounding area. We enjoyed staying in the property. Directions were good except that instructions need to say that immediate entrance is a cycle track not a proper road. The property was comfortable with easy access to shops and local services. The property has light and well furnished lounge area which was warm and comfortable. The TV worked well and free wifi was useful. The kitchen however is very basic with a small microwave and hob but no cooker. The bedrooms are dark and the decoration is dull and basic. There is only one small shower room, The shower room shower is warm but water drained away too slowly flooding the floor.
We had the occasion to visit several cities near Amersfoort, Also Because It "s in the middle of the Netherland and Amersfoort is Also nice itself.
Wij hebben veel gefietst in die prachtige omgeving met al die mooi aangegeven fietsroutes en zijn ook vaak weggeweest met de trein naar interessante plekken. Oude stad van Amersfoort, Dolfinarium in Harderwijk....
