What a beautiful place to dream away completely. This nature house is located just outside the village of Jistrum near Burgum exactly between Leeuwarden, Dokkum, Drachten and the Lauwersmeer. Super central yet remote with peace and space for three people. A completely renovated working-class house - a so-called forest house - on an idyllic sandy path in the North Frisian forests. On the floor-heated ground floor you will find an open kitchen with dining and sitting area and the bathroom. The kitchen is equipped with an electric stove, dishwasher, fridge with freezer, coffee maker, kettle, oven and toaster. The dining area is for four people and there are two armchairs in the seating area. You have access to internet, interactive TV, a DVD player and a good sound system. The bathroom has a toilet, a large sink and a shower. There is a hair dryer and soap and bath linen is standard. Upstairs is the bedroom with three beds and a wardrobe. Outside you have a large garden with playground equipment, a barbecue and fire pit. On the terrace at the entrance is the morning coffee in the sun.

Nature and environment

Nature and environment

Our Wâldhûske is quietly and freely situated in a protected landscape - the heart of the Northern Friesian Forests. The area is characterized by ancient tree walls that radiate the cozy atmosphere of a forest area. The flora and fauna is diverse and exuberant. You are awakened in the morning by a magnificent concert of the many species of songbirds that occur here. On the north side of the village Jistrum, on a 300 year old sandy path you will find this cottage. The sand path lies in an area with - especially around Jistrum - many more sandy roads suitable for walking, cycling and horse riding in Friesland. At a distance of five kilometers you will find the marina with boathouse on the Bergumermeer. Nearby, on the lake, there is a public swimming area with sunbathing area, beach and jetty. In the area, the water sports and nature village Earnewâld is very worthwhile. You can take a cruise through a swamp area, the national park "De Alde Feanen". You will find, among other things, cormorants, storks, spoonbills and if you are lucky otters. Beautiful historic cities are Dokkum and Leeuwarden. A day trip to one of the Wadden Islands is also recommended.


Our cottage offers space for three people.


On the ground floor you will find the living room and the bathroom. The living room is divided into an entrance hall, seating area, dining area and kitchen area. In the bathroom you will find the toilet, a large washbasin and a shower. The bedroom is on the first floor and has three beds and a wardrobe. A cot or cot can be placed on request for a few days.


The apartment has underfloor heating. In the living room you have a TV, radio, stereo, internet connection, Wi-Fi and a small table chair. In the kitchen you will find a fridge-freezer, dishwasher, ceramic hob, oven, kettle and coffee maker. The bedroom has a wardrobe, internet connection, TV connection and Wi-Fi. The bathroom has a toilet, large sink, hair dryer, soap dispensers and shower with thermostat. For the terrace there are two nice adjustable seating / sun loungers with table. In our large garden you will find a sunbathing area, play equipment, fire pit and duck pond. Bike rental can also.


Already on a grietenijkaart from 1694 we find a "Vogelkooy" with our cottage at the address of the Heideweg in Eestrum. There is still a duck pond on our site. a remnant of the original duck cage.

In 1996, the former owner behind the old wâldhûske built a modern house under architecture in the style of a wooden haycake. In 2007 we bought it and after that the old house was completely renovated in rustic style.
