Why Gerard Hartveld chose South Holland

The Sint Nicolaashoeve is working farm in a really Dutch polder.

The farm is for our guest free to visit, for sure the kids will love it!

They can “help” on the farm, play with our friendly dog Jackie.

Special for the kids there are also free to use (old) bikes on the farm.

A Wonderful Family-Friendly Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our American family of four (two children ages 7 and 9) stayed in the Coach House at Sint Nicolaashoeve for six nights. We had an absolutely, amazing experience. The description was accurate and the property was very clean and well-maintained. The country setting provided a peaceful retreat at the end of a busy day of sightseeing.

The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was spacious. The fully equipped kitchen was great for preparing meals. A washer and dryer were also available on site. Although we didn't take advantage of it, there was a game room available that had a variety of board games, puzzles, etc. Our children were more interested in exploring the farm and riding the bicycles that were available to guests. Each day, they made sure that we made it back to the farm in time for them to have their own down-time. By the time we left, they had become friends with and had assigned names to most of the animals, including the milk cows!

Sint Nicolaashoeve is only a short 15 minute or so drive from Schiphol Airport. We rented a car for our stay and found the location to be very convenient for trips into Alkmaar, Amsterdam, Gouda, Keukenhof Gardens, Haarlem, Hoorne, Leiden, and The Hague. We were able to purchase the food we needed and other basic items at the local Coop (grocery store) and bakery - these were within walking distance of the farm. The Coop also had an ATM, which made it convenient to get cash. Our favorite dining spot, recommended by the owners, was at De Strooppot, just a few minutes away in De Hoef. The drive through the countryside, a great meal, and super-friendly staff made for a wonderful evening!

The owners were very friendly and extremely helpful - that kind of just-in-time help that you need when trying to find the grocery store, local restaurant, or even how to find reverse in your European car! Our flights were changed several times and each time they were helpful to accommodate these changes. Our flight arrived earlier than originally planned, and the owners stored our luggage in a locked closet while we went exploring in Gouda. When we returned, all of our luggage had been moved into the house, and the two largest suitcases had been carried upstairs to the bedrooms!

I would recommend Sint Nicolaashoeve to any family looking for a peaceful, beautiful, off-the-beaten-path retreat that is closely located to Amsterdam and is centrally located to many of the tourist locations in the Netherlands!

Lovely holiday in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely Easter holiday staying at one of the apartments at Sint Nicolaashoeve. It is an excellent location within easy reach of many places to visit.

The apartment was very nice and had lovely views across the fields and to the town, it is a peaceful setting.

We had a friendly welcome from the owner and our children (aged 8yr & 3yr) enjoyed exploring the farm and watching the cows being milked.

We have recommended this holiday apartment to family and friends.

Great place Great location.

  • 5 of 5

What a great location, everything you need for a relaxing break in the country, not too far from anything and then not to close either.

The farmhouse accommodation is super, clean and tidy with everything you need, we were made to feel so very welcome by Gerard. We were also very lucky with the weather, clear blue skies every day, this place is a gem.

a wonderful family stay!

  • 5 of 5

The farm is absolutely amazing, our apartment was very cozy - with fully equipped kitchen where we could cook our own meals, and the owners are very friendly and tend to their guests' needs immediately. This is a great place to stay with young kids, and the surrounding area is relaxing and peaceful so you can enjoy a relaxing stroll along small canals.

A Stunning Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome stay at this wonderful location with the equally awesome Gerard and Eveline. They made our week at Sint Nicolaashoeve most enjoyable and memorable. The accommodation was great and as described by Linda T below so no need to repeat other than to say that we too ate most of our meals outside at the patio table whilst enjoying the rural atmosphere.

If you are planning a trip to The Netherlands then you will be hard pressed to find a more sublime place in which to base yourself. Thanks Gerard and Eveline!

Consider us happy customers

We just returned from an exciting extended vacation to Europe. When friends and family ask what our favorite part of the vacation was, the answer is easy-our Farm Stay at the Sint Nicolaashoeve in Nieuwveen!

We rented a self catering one bedroom cottage which had plenty of room for the two of us. Our bedroom was upstairs in the loft- very comfortable bed, and we had plenty of room to stretch out. Downstairs on the main floor was the kitchen, complete with pans, dishes, a 4 burner cooktop and dishwasher, a small dining area, a living room with TV, and a very ample bathroom. Our favorite space though, was the outside patio. When the weather would permit, we would make our meals in the kitchen and eat outside where we could watch the little lambs in one field and the young dairy cows in another.

The property is well maintained, the gardens beautiful, the hosts more than generous with their time. You have lots of freedom to explore the farm, use the laundry, watch the farming operations or play with their dog.

The grocery, bike shop, and bakery are just a short walk away- all first rate.

Lots to see and do in South Holland, from the spectacular Keukenhof to Flora Holland, Gouda, and bike riding along the canal paths.

How much did we like it? We are already trying to put together a return trip for next Spring!

This place is really something special- you can't miss!
