It was absolutely perfect! We loved staying here! We hope to return!
A fabulous, tranquil, perfect holiday home.
This is a delightful and comfortable former Miller's house, right next to a majestic windmill and with a ponder just a few feet from the terrace doors. Expect to enjoy a comfortable and cosy stay, with regular visits from the local wildlife (ducks, swans, moorhens and heron). The house has three bedrooms, including one downstairs which means you can finish a nice evening in front of the TV or the terrace, and relax straight away. The lovely hosts will offer you free bike rental and fishing rods too, and were unobtrusive but always on hand to answer any questions. They were polite and very helpful at all times and our thanks to them for helping us to have such an enjoyable Christmas and New Year at their Miller's house.
We really enjoyed our stay here. Looking out the kitchen/dining room window and seeing the windmill is absolutely fantastic. The cottage is extremely comfortable and is well equipped. The tour of the mill was really appreciated, Eric did an outstanding job as a tour guide. We would definitely return for another stay if we return to area.
We stayed at the former Miller's house in March 2018. Dirk and Suzan were outstanding hosts, friendly and attentive to our needs and interests, but never in the way. My wife and I enjoyed a week long stay with our two teenage boys. The house is in a small town, off the beaten path, but nearby Leiden and the Keukkenhof, and centrally located for sights north (Amsterdam, Haarlem) and south (The Hague, Kinderdijk). The house was quite spacious for the price and met our needs. The highlight was a tour of the windmill next door. Dirk provided a wonderful tour and first-hand perspective of its operation and history. Thanks Dirk and Suzan for a great stay!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Miller's house this Spring. Dirk en Suzan could not have been more welcoming and the tour of the mill with detailed explanations made for a great start of our week.
The house is clean, fully equipped, comfortable, and centrally located so it was easy to get to all the places we wanted to visit. But the big attraction for us was waking up to the view of the majestic mill and sitting and having a glass of wine on the water's edge watching the visiting ducks and swans with their cygnets while a coot was busy collecting food for her offspring in a nest somewhere out of sight. It could not have been more Dutch!

Great Home, Great Location, All You Could Need, Wonderfully Kind and Helpful Hosts!
Loved my stay! Dirk and Suzan are so kind, friendly and helpful. The house was spotless and well equipped. The garden is well tended and lush with outside dining, 2 adult bikes and a rowboat, of which we enjoyed all! The location is great! Walk-able or bike-able grocery, peaceful and serene, yet easy, fast access to motorways, centrally located for excursions! For USA travelers: very steep, shallow tread stairs (very common in Europe), not for the every young or mobility impaired.
The Tour of the Mill is one of the very best parts. Dirk is very knowledgeable and generous with his time, showing you all the parts of the mill, explaining and showing how it works.
Truly lovely stay, thank you so much Dirk & Suzan.
The detached house from 1931 is on a farm with an old polder (1722) on the outskirts of the village. The house was occupied until 2014 by the miller and was refurbished in 2014 entirely by volunteers.
Hazerswoude Dorp is in the center of the Randstad; by car in less than three quarters of Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht. Lead is 10 km.
There is a bus to Leiden (station) and Alphen aan den Rijn (station), stop at 10 minutes.
It is an ideal base for exploring the Randstad and western Netherlands, by car, bicycle or on foot. And stay in the Green Heart also means enjoying distant views, peace and beautiful polders.
The house has a lot of information material available on attractions and opportunities for visits to museums, parks and (child) attractions.
In April and May, the Keukenhof in Lisse (45 minutes) can be visited.
