About the property

Romantic yearning place in the middle of the most beautiful landscape

The thatched roofs, in the middle of the 19th century. Century house, was owned by the Duke of Oldenburg until 20 years ago and is located on the edge of the nature park Holstein Switzerland on an idyllic site surrounded by forest and a meadow. Neighbors are neither to be heard nor seen. The eastern border of the garden is bordered by a rippling brook. For children a game paradise.

In the case of refurbishment measures care has been taken to preserve or restore the old building structure of 1860 as far as possible. For example, the old doors with iron fittings are still available. Visible truss beams, wooden floorboards, original rung windows and interior walls with clay plaster emphasize the character. The spacious dining room is the center of the house. With a generous ceiling of just under 3 meters and a splendid morning sun, this is the perfect place to relax and unwind at the large table with guests and family. The piano is happy about small and big musicians. Immediately afterwards is the kitchen with access to a generous sun terrace, paved with old granite stones. On a living space of approx. 140 sqm there is also a cozy living room with fireplace, as well as two large and two small bedrooms, one of the small bedrooms being a retreat for the youngest and therefore only one or two baby cot is available.

From the north, a pasture is bordered by the picture-book. Farmers from the Demeter farm Hollergraben are allowed to graze here.

Wunderschönes Ferienhaus mitten im Wald

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben im Mai als Großfamilie ein verlängertes Wochendene in diesem Ferienhaus verbracht. Das Allerschönste ist die verwunschene und idyllische Lage mitten im Wald in der holsteinischen Schweiz mit dem Auto nicht allzu weit von den einschlägigen und kinderfreundlichen Stränden enfernt. Das Haus selber ist schlicht und geschmackvoll eingerichtet, mit viel Liebe hergerichtet und alles Notwendige und mehr ist vorhanden.

Die Vermieter sind sehr aufmerksam, stets erreichbar und (kaum notwendigen) Verbesserungsvorschlägen gegenüber sehr aufgeschlossen. Die Beschreibung entspricht absolut der Realität, das nichtvorhandene WLAN etc. ist Vorteil und nicht Nachteil. Im Außenbereich passiert noch Einiges aber das tut dem Aufenthalt keinen Abbruch.

Im Fazit ist dies ein Haus für Liebhaber von Natur und deren Schönheit. Wir haben uns fast gescheut eine so positive Bewertung zu verfassen, denn wir fürchten einen Run auf dieses einzigartige Ferienhaus. Wir kommen wieder, vielen Dank!

Wunderschönes Haus! Absolut empfehlenswert!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben vier wunderschöne Tage im Hollergraben verbracht. Das Haus ist absolut empfehlenswert für all diejenigen, die ihre Ruhe inmitten der Natur haben möchten (dennoch in Kürze die Ostsee erreichen möchten). Es wirkt schon fast verwunschen und träumerisch, wenn man das Grundstück betritt, fernab von irgendwelchem Stadttrubel. Wir waren eine 7-köpfige Familie, in der jede/r auf seine Kosten gekommen ist. Die vom Haus sicher entfernte Feuerstelle, an der wir jeden Abend gegrillt haben, war eines der Highlights. Aber auch die Terrasse mit Blick auf den Wald und den Bach war eines der beliebtesten Fleckchen. Das Haus selbst bietet genügend Platz und ist rustikal und liebevoll eingerichtet, ganz im Bauernhausstil. Wir haben uns gefühlt wie in eine ferne Zeit zurück versetzt und würden jederzeit wieder einen Urlaub in diesem Haus verbringen. Eine absolute Empfehlung unsererseits!
