About our home

Our country home is set on a private family estate in the middle of the Netherlands, 80 km from Amsterdam. The original thatched property is built in a Dutch/English country style. It boasts character with oak panelling, fire places in many of the rooms and beautiful detailing. The property has recently been renovated and has all the comforts of a modern home.
The house is mainly furnished with antiques but it has been done in a relaxed way making it suitable for (behaved) children and (behaved) animals.
You could share the house with Thomas our cat (we can move him out if you mind cats), and will share the land with our friendly donkeys Sam and Frodo and possibly our lovely dog who often stays in another property on the land when we travel.
On the estate we have 2 further cottages and an old farmhouse where our mother lives. Every property has complete privacy. The grounds are safe for children and dogs as we have fenced off 4 acres around the buildings. A large (woodfired hot) tub allows you to cool down on hot summer days and warm up on cold winter ones. A small village with 600 residents but 10 restaurants is a 400m walk away. From the grounds you can walk straight into the woods and you'll be unlucky not to encounter deer and wild boar which come right up to the fence. The area is the largest nature area in The Netherlands called 'Veluwe', known for its woods and heathlands, and is popular with the Dutch for holidaying, Cycling is amongst the best, with miles and miles of (flat) cycle tracks, usually seperated from the roads. There are many attractions for visitors, also for children and for rainy days. Due to its central location in the middle of the country, 6km from a motorway, 80km from Amsterdam and 90km from Schiphol Airport the property is an idea base to explore The Netherlands and nearby cities in Belgium and Germany (Bruges, Antwerp, Brussels and Cologne) which can all be reached within 2 hours, whilst staying in some of the prettiest countryside of the country.


More about us

  1. We're a couple in our early 40's, consultant and entrepreneur. We love outdoors, mountains (skiing hiking) or pure isolation, beaches (diving) and cities.

  2. We are looking for a swap for skiing in the winter 2017 and a summer destination for a beach holiday. We have the London flat to swap as well as an old thatched country house 80km from Amsterdam, and or a stylish villa near Nice on the Cote d'Azur. The swap can be mixed, non simultaniously but we are looking for something nice as we appreciate beautiful properties.
