We are Eveline and Gerard Hartveld.

Gerard is the 3rd generation Hartveld on the Sint Nicolaashoeve.

We like to give you hospitality and enjoy meeting very nice people from all over the world.

Why Gerard Hartveld chose Leiden

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.

Fun for kids on a beautiful farm.

  • 5 out of 5
We (family of 6) loved our stay in the "Koetshuis" (Carriage House). There was plenty of space and the farm is beautiful and well kept. We enjoyed the bicycles and having a go at milking a cow. The Regentenkamer (Regents Room) was also great with a ping pong table, fussball, old fashioned sjoelbak (Dutch shuffleboard) and even a train set. There were also two sets of stilts which our children enjoyed and they loved playing with the dog and feeding grass to the bunnies. Beautiful, peaceful surroundings. Definitely would recommend for families with young children.

Wonderful spot, perfect for a family!

  • 5 out of 5
We had an excellent stay at the farm. It was located a convenient 30 mins south of Amsterdam (with a scenic and beautiful drive in between), and Gerard provides great info on where to park if you want to visit the city. The accommodations were perfect for our family of 4 (2 young boys). The apartment was well suited with 2 bedrooms and a bathroom (note that there was no bathtub). The kitchen had nearly everything we needed (no oven, no toaster but microwave, fridge/freezer, electric kettle, pots, pans, cutlery, etc.). A supermarket is an easy 5 - 10 min walk away so it was nice to be able to cook most meals at "home". The 2 bedrooms were perfect for us and very comfortable. The apartment was clean and tidy. Wifi was easy to access and free. There was definitely a strong odor of cow manure but what do you expect when staying at a working farm. :) Above the barn is a recreation room with a ping pong table and table football: this was a nice bonus for our boys. Additionally, Gerard offers a variety of bicycles/tricycles for guests to ride free of charge. The area around the farm is beautiful and perfect for a leisurely ride. Our boys also enjoyed watching the cows be milked in the evening and playing with Jackie, the farm dog. Overall we felt like the farm offered amazing value for the money and we will absolutely stay here again on our next visit to Holland. It felt like a home and was very cozy compared to staying in an impersonal hotel room. Thanks to Gerard for being a wonderful host!

Excellent Location

  • 5 out of 5
This farm set in a very peaceful location is ideal for getting to Amsterdam, Delft, Gouda, Leiden,Utrecht and Haarlem, It is very easy to get to 3 seasides as well, the pretty canal towns are all worth visiting.
Our hosts Gerard and Eveline were extremely friendly and helpful, like all the Dutch people we met.
The accomodation is comfortable and ideal for children as they can help on the farm and watch the cows being milked.The apartments are clean and well maintained.
The village is a pretty walk in 10 mins with an excellent Supermarket called the Coop.
We totally recommend this accomodation to everyone.

A friendly working farm in a beautiful location

  • 5 out of 5
A wonderful place to stay. We were in the Coach House which was bright, clean, sunny, and looked out over the farm, with swallows nesting under the eaves, and a lovely terrace outside on which to eat. Our three children (aged 14,14, and 10) thought it was marvellous, particularly our ten-year old son who was allowed to help on the farm, learning how to milk the cows, feed them, bring them in from the fields and, the undoubted highlight of the stay, drive a tractor. It was harvest time and we were also out in the fields as dusk as the wheat was being brought in, and had a real sense of what farming life was like.

The location was superb, close but not too close to a good supermarket and bakery (perhaps 300 metres), we rented bikes in the village, and cycled all over the place, with good nature reserves, nice villages, and the occasional small town all within easy and pleasant reach. Canoeing at Nieuwkoop thorugh the flooded polders was great fun (if easy to get lost...). Perhaps most striking was that on the last day we left on the bus (we didn't have a car and didn't need one, public transport being excellent), and within an hour were amazed to find ourselves in central Amsterdam, despite feeling for the whole holiday that we were in deepest rural Holland.

Gerard, the owner, whose grandfather originally bought the farm, made us feel wonderfully at home, and knew exactly how to make a small boy enjoy being on a farm!

The other families on the farm were very international (French, Italian, German) and obviously all enjoyed it a lot as well, and it didn't feel crowded, everyone having their own individual spaces.

Five-stars all round.

Escape the city and experience a peaceful farm

  • 5 out of 5
Escaped the hustle and bustle of the city to enjoy a peaceful and comfortable holiday with family at the Sint Nicolaashoeve farm. Even though the farm is situated in a quiet town, everything you need is nearby -- a supermarket, bank and a few restaurants. We loved that we could explore the Netherlands, but return to the peacefulness of the farm each night.

The 2 bedroom apartment we stayed in looked brand new and included modern appliances in the kitchen and a flat screen LCD TV. Very comfortable beds and a sofa in the living area.

Gerard has provided his guests with everything they need for a comfortable and efficient holiday. Numerous bikes and riding toys for adults and kids are provided. You can easily bike from the rear of the farm to one of the main bike paths through the area.

Gerard always greeted our family with a friendly smile and asked us about our holidays and how things are going. Our 3 young children were sad to leave at the end of our stay. They are already missing Jackie, the cows, bunnies and cats!

Australian visitors

  • 5 out of 5
We were a family of 12, including 5 children, visiting from Australia, making use of 3 of the apartments. This was an ideal arrangement for a large family group, as we were all together, yet enjoyed the independence of separate apartments. It was very central for all the places we wanted to visit. The 5 children loved being shown how a Dutch farm works, as well as many happy hours on the bikes. The younger members couldn't believe you could just walk or ride to the local village, where everything you could possibly need was available to us. This is not possible in Australia! The apartments were excellent, with extremely comfortable beds. Only downside is that towels are considered an extra. Can't understand why? Thank you so much Gerard for giving us all the opportunity to experience the delights of a farm stay for a week in NL, for our sentimental journey back to the homeland of my husband and their father/grandfather.
