My wife and I stayed in The Wise Owl from July 8 to 15 2017.
Mr Klass met us at the park reception and took us to the chalet and showed us around.
We found it very spacious and clean and everything we needed was provided.
There was also English speaking channels on the tv and there were many dvds to watch and cds to listen to.
There is a large deck outside with tables and benches. This is covered which has it's advantages and disadvantages. It's nice to sit out there even when it's raining because you don't get wet but if you would like a lazy day chilling out and resting after a hard day the day before you wont get any sunbathing done out there.
Wifi is provided but you can only have 1 item at a time but that isn't a problem because the holday park provides wifi and if you need to use more than item you can logon to that.
The park is very quiet and has a 10 km/h speed limit which is enforsed by hundreds of speed humps so it's safe for children and just opposite the chalet is a small childrens play area. Entrance to the park is by a key pass that Mr Klass provides so no one that shouldn't be there can get in. There is parking space for one "Smallish" car at the chalet. I don't think an estate car will fit. But there are parking spaces along the road a little way.
Next to the park is a forest that is very nice for walks.
There are many shops and supermarkets in Veenendaal, which is 5 km from the holiday park.
The exit to the A12 motorway is also in Veenendaal and from there the Dolfinarium is 45 minutes. Royal Flora in Aalsmeer is less than an hour. Rotterdam zoo, Delft pottery, The Hague, Madurodam and the beach are about an hour and Amsterdam is a little over an hour.
Overall it's a lovely chalet and a very friendly and very quiet holiday park and I highly recommend it. It's very large with plenty of room for a couple or a family with 3 children.
Driving up to the windmill was amazing! The surroundings are beautiful, with farms and stunning Dutch houses. It was a short drive from Nijmegen, and a shop was within walking distance.
The kitchen has everything you need - we were with a group of 12, but cooking and sitting to have meals was easy. The laundry had everything, the bathrooms were great and the beds were very comfortable.
We are still pinching ourselves that we actually stayed in a windmill for Christmas Day! We have many wonderful memories and photos of our stay.
Around the mill there is a lovely walk through the woods, a outdoor Chapel which was lovely to walk around.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this unique experience.
