Located in rural Drenthe, on the edge of a forest, with views across the undulating meadows with grazing cattle, our family home. Here we spend with pleasure every year some time.

Totally relaxing, comfortable, homely and quiet rural house.

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay for our family of five. We took bikes and loved exploring the local cycleways and used them for shopping trips to nearby shops as well as further afield for visits. The local open air swimming pool is less than 1km away with kids pool, springboard and adult lanes so something for all of us. Very steep stairs to upstairs twin bedroom so watch younger ones.

The local cycling is either on dedicated paths or roads with very light traffic - a complete contrast to the UK. Some of the woodland paths are criss crossed by more adventurous mountain bike paths and they are worth a diversion if you are used to it and have a suitable bike.

The house is comfortable, welcoming and cool in summer. It felt homely and lived in and we were very happy to stay there.

Peace and quiet with easy access

  • 5 of 5

This unique and very beautiful house is perfect for a peaceful getaway. It is so cozy (gezellig in Dutch) with its large living room and comfortable furniture as well as exposed framing. The upstairs bedroom, under the thatch has a very special atmosphere. It is the most complete and well appointed home we have ever rented with everything you can imagine at hand - from a potato masher to a shoe horn. The owner is also very helpful. A rare house, with a lovely patio and sheep and a few horses grazing beyond the back yard, a relaxing house.

It is in a quiet location near the charming village Eext which has a few restaurants. There is easy access to larger towns nearby and it is not far to Assen and Groningen, as well as the rest of northeast Netherlands, making it a great base for touring.

Het was fijn vertoeven in Drenthe.

  • 4 of 5

Wij hebben, met onze Italiaanse gasten genoten van het huis en het landschap van Drenthe. Echt even uit de dagelijkse beslommeringen. Ook onze hond Karel was er gelijk thuis. Een aanrader.

Heerlijk rustig

  • 4 of 5

In een zeer rustige omgeving gelegen boerderijtje. Zeer ruime woonkamer. Alles aanwezig. Wij hebben een heerlijke rustige week gehad. Prachtig uitzicht over het weiland met schapen en lammetjes. Hartelijk ontvangst op de dag van aankomst.

fijn huis op het platte land

  • 4 of 5

We hebben een week doorgebracht in het huis en dat was fijn. Het huis is comfortabel en ruim, met een prachtige tuin en uitzicht. De omgeving is mooi en er is genoeg te doen. De verhuurster is vriendelijk en attent. Al met al een aanrader.
