This beautifully restored old farmhouse is surrounded by meadows, forest and peaceful gardens. Cees and Jakob, who used to run a cookery school, live on site and are warm and convivial hosts.
Breakfast is a buffet of fruit salad, homemade jams, cheese, bread and eggs, and you can dine at separate tables in the dining room, on the veranda or in the garden. Jakob will also produce dinner by request using home-grown fruit and veg and wine from their extensive cellar; they’ll happily ply you with drinks and snacks too.
Find your own space in the garden to read or doze, walk to the village (20 minutes) for a spot of not-very-many-people watching or order a picnic hamper and head off on marked trails. You need to drive to good restaurants, weekly markets and medieval villages.
