Nearby attractions:

- It is just a 10-minute walk to reach the forests of the Drents-Friese Wold (6,100 hectares / 15,070 acres), one of the largest National parks of the Netherlands, with its 32 marked walks & numerous cycle paths. Also situated close by to National Park Dwingelderveld (3,692 hectares / 9,120 acres) - the largest moorland on the European Continent - with its 60 kms (37 miles) of walking trails & 40 kms (25 miles) of bicycle paths. Diever is at the center of an abundance of historical sites and attractions for adults and children of all ages. Diversity on your doorstep!

- Get a glimpse of life in the Netherlands during the 18th century at the ‘working‘ village of Orvelte. Visit the WWII transit camp at Westerbork – to where Anne Frank and her family were brought. Take in the many museums that will provide an interest to each member of your group. For teenagers, there are 18 fun parks and, for our younger guests, enchanting ‘fairy tale’ parks nearby. While the city of Groningen ('shop till you drop') & the German border are all less than an hour's drive, the provincial capital at Assen is just a 25-minute drive away! Not forgetting a day-out to the world-famous Emmen zoo, while for those looking for more sporty activities, sailing, boat excursions & fishing can be enjoyed at Giethoorn (the ‘Venice of the North’). Also, there is an 18-hole golf course available in Havelte (14km/9 miles away).

- Want to visit the beach as well? The Frisian islands make a great day out with some of the best beaches in the Netherlands:

Terschelling island -

The ferry to Terschelling leaves from Harlingen, Friesland (1 hr 45 mins ferry crossing).

Ameland island-

A ferry service runs from Holwerd, Friesland (45 minutes by catamaran or 120 mins by regular ferry). Excursions are available from Ameland to visit seal colonies on Robbeneiland.

Schiermonnikoog island -

The ferry runs several times a day from Lauwersoog, Groningen (45 minutes crossing time).

The ports are around 1 1/2 hours from Diever.

The village of Diever -

Diever is located at the south-westerly tip of the province of Drenthe (approx. 2 hours east of Amsterdam), is renowned for the open-air productions of Shakespeare which have been re-enacted in its forest amphitheatre every summer since 1946. In the village there is a grocery store, an award-winning bakery, a good variety of shops, cafes, bars, restaurants and a bank. There is a market, encircling the village’s 14th century church, selling everything from clothes to local products – this is held in Diever every Monday throughout the Summer months.

There is also a Dutch National Tourist office in Diever with a wealth of information on the surrounding area.

So, whether its picnicking in the forest, taking a dip in a forest bathing pool or going by horseback along one of the many marked trails, you won’t be disappointed by this areas rich heritage, its welcoming, English-speaking people and its unending choice of excursions and attractions. Come and visit the real Netherlands!

Accessibility:

- Diever is easily accessible from both Amsterdam Schiphol and Dusseldorf airports (both are 2 hours distance). A car is recommended (rental cars also available at both airports), although public transport (bus) just a few minutes’ walk away with links to the surrounding villages and towns. Nearest rail station is at Beilen (20 minutes away)

Using the farmhouse as a base to explore the Netherlands:

Are you looking for a central base from which to explore the Netherlands?

- apart from being able to explore the north and east of the country with ease, ‘Under the Oaks’ is also very centrally located for visiting both the south / south-west of the Netherlands, as well as the west of the country. The travelling times for reaching these areas are considerably shorter than travelling via the highway network in the west of the country, as our roads and highways here in the north and east are less congested.

- Being situated in the south-west corner of Drenthe, Diever is placed at the crossroads of three Dutch provinces - Drenthe, Overijssel and Friesland - all uniquely different to one another. So when you are in Drenthe, why not discover Friesland and Overijssel provinces as well - the borders lie just 15 minutes away by car, with the highway just 11 kms (7 miles) away!

Driving times from Diever to other parts of the Netherlands?

- it’s less than 2 hours from Diever to the southern city of Eindhoven (the Belgian border is just south of there).

A visit to Amsterdam while staying in Diever?

- many of our guests drive the 45 minutes to the suburbs of Almere, and then take the short train journey from there into Amsterdam city. It’s much easier to park your car outside the city and use the fast and efficient public transport from there!

Wishing to explore Rotterdam and the Hague in the south-west of the country as well?

- these cities are also just 90-120 minutes away. Again, travelling times from our region to these cities is faster than from many other parts of the country, as the highway network via Zwolle to Utrecht has lighter traffic.

We want you to have a wonderful and memorable vacation!

- It is our pleasure to be of assistance to you before and during your stay, and it is our priority to make sure that you will have a pleasant vacation.

- We are happy to offer any help on preparing your trip.

- We do advertise on many holiday home sites, including those operated by agencies with a 'live' instant booking function. Certain dates (especially around Easter, in Summer and Christmas/New Year) can be very popular, with some dates booked more than a year in advance. At certain times of the year many people are looking for the same dates. In order to avoid any disappointment, please ask us to hold your dates on option for you, if you are unable to confirm immediately.

Please contact us with any questions you may have about the farmhouse, Diever, Drenthe or anything at all to do with the Netherlands!

About David & Monique Samson

Greetings from Diever! We are David and Monique Samson.

In 2004 we decided to relocate our family to peaceful rural Drenthe, one of the most beautiful parts of the Netherlands.

David has twenty-five years experience in tourism, having worked for several major airlines, tour operators and business travel agencies.

We have advertised our holiday farmhouse rental property with VRBO/Homeaway since 2010 and also list our vacation home on many of the other major vacation home rental sites.

Please see us on Facebook ('Under Oaks'), where we can also be contacted.

Secure credit card payments accepted via PayPal or via the Homeaway online payment system.

David & Monique Samson purchased this farmhouse in 2004

Why David & Monique Samson chose Westerveld

In 2004, here in the small Drenthe village of Diever, we found the perfect location for a holiday farmhouse. The property was originally the site of a very popular B&B, which operated from 1972 until 2004 (at which point the previous owners decided that it was time to retire!)

We have discovered the most idyllic spot in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Being situated between two National Parks (including the largest area of moorland in Europe at 'Dwingelderveld') allowing for many recreational activities, yet with close proximity to the motorway network making for easy day trips to other parts of the Netherlands and the German border, which is less than an hour away.

If we can provide you with any local knowledge to make sure that you have the most perfect holiday then please contact us.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Centrally located in Diever village. Within walking distance of a supermarket, bakery, 6 restaurants, chemist, newsagents, many souvenir shops, a bike rental shop and an archaeological museum. We are just a short walk/bike ride away from the nearby 'Drents-Friese' forest.

The farmhouse, situated adjacent to fields and a bicycle path running alongside, can comfortably accommodate up to 10 adults. Smaller groups are most welcome (see our discounts of up to 20%).

You will be amazed by the many attractions in the area. The outstanding natural beauty of Drenthe is here for all to enjoy - not forgetting the forests, lakes, dunes, hiking & riding trails, parks for the kids, the many museums & places of historic interest, as well as the ease of reaching the surrounding towns

Still thinking about this wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

I have been home 2 or 3 months and I am still reflecting on this holiday which was faciltated mostly by the wonderful location of this property. We both love countryside and village living and because of the fantastic location of this house we were able to literally have it all. Even the small amount of bad weather added a different aspect to the mood of the area. I have some great memories and photos of my time there. I have stayed in many places but the attention and knowledge from our host was exceptional in planning our stay.

The welcome package was the best we've ever had if you like to feel safe whilst cycling then this village is perfect.

A hidden gem in a great location in the Rural Netherlands

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to this part of the Netherlands before and were very impressed at this hidden gem of an area and a property. 2 families stayed for 1 week. The house is in the centre of a lovely village surrounded by National parks and forests. The village has everything a holidaymaker needs (Supermarket, Bike Hire, cafes, restaurants, weekly market) and the accommodation is well equipped. The owner lives in the house behind and is on hand to assist with advice, suggestions of things to do and bookings. When we arrived there was a very good welcome pack left including wine, beer as well as coffee, tea, bread, butter and cheese. Parking is easy and off road. Being Holland it is very flat and great bike riding country and we were pleased to see that there were tarmac bike pathways through the forest making it safe for children to cycle away from cars. For day trips you are about an hour away from the coast or from the border with Germany. However, there is a wealth of information at 'Under the Oaks' with ideas of things to do more locally.

Schöne Zeit über Silvester

  • 4 of 5

Hallo, wir waren mit unserem Kind und zwei anderen Familien (plus Kinder) über Silvester bei Familie Samson und haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Haus war in einem super Zustand, die Zimmer sauber, perfekt für mehrere Leute (wir waren insgesamt 12). Ein große Küche, in der wir immer zusammen essen konnten, sehr gemütliches Wohnzimmer und eine tolle Umgebung in einem sehr schönen kleinen Örtchen. Das Geschäft nur 2min vom Haus entfernt, war auch ein großer Vorteil. Familie Samson ist super freundlich, hilfsbereit, aber nicht aufdringlich. Wir können das Haus auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen und haben dies im Freundeskreis auch bereits getan. Wir würden auf jeden Fall wiederkommen. Vielen Dank für eine schöne Zeit!!!

Familieweekend

  • 5 of 5

Allereerst een prima communicatie vanaf het begin van de boeking. Makkelijk mailcontact, prettig.

Bij aankomst, rondleiding door het huis dat al gezellig verlicht was door de kerstboom.Prima huis! Schoon, groot genoeg voor 10 personen.Voldoende handdoeken, bedden opgemaakt, lekkers in de koelkast, echt geweldig!

Wij voelden ons echt welkom en hebben, zeker door de sfeer en gezelligheid van het huis, heerlijk kunnen genieten van onze familie. Onze studerende kinderen zijn 's avonds nog met elkaar het café ingegaan, waar zij ontzettend veel plezier hebben gehad. Dit was allemaal op loopafstand dus wat wil een mens nog meer? Dank aan David en zijn vrouw, als het aan ons ligt komen we volgend weekend weer.

Met vriendelijke groeten, Wouter en Cécile

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at "Under the Oaks" quite a few times now. It is a place we like to call "Our home away from home". We have been here with our children and grandchildren and we keep coming back! We couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay. Our accommodations are clean and spacious. David and Monique are excellent hosts and are willing to assist us with anything we need. Waiting for us upon our arrival is a welcome basket filled with food items. We love the small village atmosphere with its shops and restaurants. It is a very picturesque town! Here we can also enjoy kilometers of biking through the forest which lies adjacent to the village. We hope we can come back sometime in the near future.

Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

I have now stayed 3 times with large groups at beautiful “Under the Oaks” farmhouse and can highly recommend it. The location and facilities are just great, very convenient and close to all attractions and the best part that is in the heart of the beautiful town of Diever. Do not hesitate and book it! Ik ben nu al 3 keer op het mooie "Onder de Eiken " boerderij verbleven en kan het iedereen van harte aanraden. De locatie, accomodatie en faciliteiten zijn gewoon geweldig, de boerderij dicht bij alle attracties en in het hart van de prachtige dorp Diever. Aarzel niet en boek deze prachtige accomodatie!
