About the property

apartment for two people at farm

This farm from 1825 named "Aan Eekst" stands on a unique location on fish / sailing and bathing water. A recently renovated part of the farm is waiting for you as spacious apartment of 70m2 with complete privacy. Attractive and luxuriously furnished in English style. In the countryside, away from the highway, but just 20 minutes from the city of Groningen is Annerveenschekanaal Grevelinge Canal which flows into the Zuidlaardermeer. close to the beautiful nature of the Hunzedal in Drenthe. The old bridges, the sluice and bridge master housing effortlessly evoke the images of the golden years of the Drenthe-Groningen peat. From the farm to his beautiful bike, walking and boat or canoe trips.

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday staying on this farm. The accomodation was great. A super sized bathroom and bedroom. The bed was the best we have ever had in a "holiday cottage"

There were logs abundant for us to light the wood stove which we needed on two occasions as the temperature dropped in the evening. Our hosts were very pleasant and made us very welcome. Should we ever return to that part of Holland again we shall definitely stay there.

Enjoyed our stay in quiet spacious farmhouse next to pretty tree-lined canal

  • 5 of 5

Our lovely hosts both spoke perfect English and immediately welcomed us with fresh slices of cake. We also appreciated the various food and drinks thoughtfully left out for us including jars of muesli, preserves, and even a proper English china tea pot! The property is very comfortable and full of character, with some interesting antique items placed around the rooms and a large wood burning stove in the sitting area, which we enjoyed lighting on the dark October nights, with plenty of wood provided. There is also perfectly adequate underfloor heating, and for an evening in, the TV set picks up BBC1, CNN, and National Geographic Channel - along with Dutch, French, and possibly German stations.

We love history, so enjoyed exploring the vibrant medieval university town of Groningen about 30 mins drive away; but a highlight for us within a similar radius was a day at the Hunebed Centre - a UNESCO site of prehistoric burial chambers made of huge boulders - older than Stonehenge and of equal importance. We were moved by a visit to Kamp Westerbork (a Nazi transit camp) and refreshed by a trip up to the North Sea coast and the Lauwersmeer National Park (about 70 mins drive).

Equally enjoyable was simply walking along the peaceful and beautiful canal that passes the bottom of the garden and which seems to stretch for miles - as far as the eye can see. We spotted a kingfisher; and the sight of the lines of golden-leaved trees reflected in the still water through the autumn morning mist was a photographer's paradise!

We have already booked a return visit here next summer, and would recommend this property to anyone - especially those seeking a quieter rural location but with easy road access to nearby shops, supermarkets and tourist attractions.

Super zum entspannen

  • 4 of 5

Pärchen mit Hund suchte Erholung weit weg vom Stadttrubel und die fanden wir bei Elaine! toller Garten für den Hund. Sehr ruhige Gegend aber dennoch viele schöne kleine versteckte Ecken zum erkunden.

es war gepflegt und sauber. Leider etwas sehr hellhörig aber da man meistens eh unterwegs ist stört es nicht. Wir würden wieder dort hin fahren!!! 😬
