We also appreciated the various food and drinks thoughtfully left out for us including jars of muesli, preserves, and even a proper English china tea pot! The property is very comfortable and full of character, with some interesting antique items placed around the rooms and a large wood burning stove in the sitting area, which we enjoyed lighting on the dark October nights, with plenty of wood provided. There is also perfectly adequate underfloor heating, and for an evening in, the TV set picks up BBC1, CNN, and National Geographic Channel - along with Dutch, French, and possibly German stations. We love history, so enjoyed exploring the vibrant medieval university town of Groningen about 30 mins drive away; but a highlight for us within a similar radius was a day at the Hunebed Centre - a UNESCO site of prehistoric burial chambers made of huge boulders - older than Stonehenge and of equal importance. We were moved by a visit to Kamp Westerbork (a Nazi transit camp) and refreshed by a trip up to the North Sea coast and the Lauwersmeer National Park (about 70 mins drive). Equally enjoyable was simply walking along the peaceful and beautiful canal that passes the bottom of the garden and which seems to stretch for miles - as far as the eye can see. We spotted a kingfisher; and the sight of the lines of golden-leaved trees reflected in the still water through the autumn morning mist was a photographer's paradise! We have already booked a return visit here next summer, and would recommend this property to anyone - especially those seeking a quieter rural location but with easy road access to nearby shops, supermarkets and tourist attractions.

David’s fantastic welcome set the tone for our to-be-remembered stay with our family of nine: friendly and open communication, very knowledgeable of the area, walking us through our home-away-from-home, always available to answer any questions, yet respecting our privacy. In other words: Hospitality with a capital H! The kitchen is the heart of the home. Here it is true! We opened the lovely bottle of wine, part of the welcome gift. “Proost!”, my sister-in-law and I said as our glasses touched. More than you can ask for, and everything you need, is already in place in this well-stocked kitchen. The Coop grocery store is close by and in a short time our groceries were put away. The smaller table is ideal for breakfast – since members of our group drift into the kitchen at different times for, here, you want to sleep in because the beds are so comfortable. The large table is perfect for all of us to gather around during dinner time, and to stay awhile, unhurried, stretching out the mealtime into the early hours of the evening. Diever is a walking town. Step on the bike-and-foot path next to the farmhouse and you walk past the neighbour’s fields, where a black Frisian horse feeds on the lush grass. This path will lead you to a tranquil park, surrounded by homes. You will discover shops to explore, see the church with its steeple at the centre of town, and continue walking along quiet roads. We stopped and picked apples out of a wheel barrow, a present from an unknown giver, which was made into applesauce to accompany our meal. You will discover another park which is home to friendly ducks, turn the corner, pass a café, walk for a few minutes more, and: You are home. Dora S.

Pretty area and great for little children but not ideal for teenagers as the surrounding villages you can cycle to are extremely quiet and sleepy. Overall a good time was had, though!
