5 of 5
De Cottage is a lovely, well furnished accommodation and ideally situated for travelling around Noord-Holland. It is in a very quiet and secure location with an excellent view from the garden across bulb fields. Piet and Ina made us most welcome. There are plenty of shops in the area, with an Albert Heijn supermarket being within walking distance. We found Egmond aan Zee to be one of the nicest of Dutch coastal villages, with the restaurants, bars and beach an easy cycle ride (perhaps 20 minutes to walk) from De Cottage. Tip if you go to Alkmaar centre (perhaps for the touristic cheese market on Friday), leave the crowds behind by taking a stroll round the maze of tiny streets across the canal from the Grote Markt, which are packed with history and interest.

Perfectly located house boat in quiet location

5 of 5
We very much enjoyed our stay in the excellently equipped and clean house boat. It was a very quiet location apart from being woken up by the ducks & coots! We were able to park write outside making loading & unloading very easy. A very warm welcome and key collection from Monika. This all made our first holiday in the Netherlands very special and hope to be able to return.
