About Gerard Hartveld

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.

So, be very welcome on our lovely farm!

Gerard Hartveld purchased this farmhouse in 1858

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.

Simply wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to explore Holland and you have young children, look no further! This place is fantastic! Modern, clean and with everything you need for a comfortable stay, the apartments are great. The location is very central, so we were able to easily visit and explore Amsterdam, Delft, Haarlem, the Keukenhof Gardens on day trips without having to worry about long car journeys. Gerard and Evelyn, the hosts, gave us a warm welcome and they were there to help with expert local knowledge and advice whenever we needed it! It was our first family trip in Holland, but we are already preparing the next one! We cannot recommend the place enough!

A great place to stay for families

  • 5 of 5

This is a special place for many reasons. Gerald and Eveline are friendly and welcoming hosts and gave us very good advice and insights about the region and places to go. Living on a farm is a fascinating experience, not only for children! Kids have freedom and lots of fun playing with the animals and toys provided on the farm. The apartments are very comfortable and very clean. A perfect spot to unwind but still near enough to places like Gouda, Leiden, the beach etc. Highly recommended to families who like nature, cycling, being outside and cows :)

Great place for holidays with the kids

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week at Gerard's place and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Both the farm and the surroundings are very pleasant. The kids adored visiting the cows! Even though it's in a rural location, nothing is really very far away. There's a very good supermarket in walking distance, and many interesting places (Amsterdam, Den Haag, Keukenhof, etc.) are just 30 min. by car (door to door!). Maybe having some more cutlery would be nice, and visitors should be aware of aeroplanes flying overhead. But it's definitely a place to be recommended (and Gerard is a very nice, relaxed host!).

Fun for kids on a beautiful farm.

  • 5 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 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!
