We were very comfortable in this lovely converted barn. Very comfortable with everything we needed. This house was our base to explore Holland. We visited the local towns, visited the Zuiderzee Museum and took a trip down to Amsterdam and Efteling. There's a great outdoor pool in the town centre too. We want to return to the area soon and this time bring our bikes! We loved the friendly cat that came to see us every day - it was hard to say good bye.
We had a brilliant week at Robertushoeve. The house is very well equipped, with more than enough cutlery, crockery, seating etc for our group of 6 adults and 9 children.
Outside, the space is fantastic. There were a few bikes and plenty of toys for the children. The boys, in particular, enjoyed making good use of the football 'pitch'. There was plenty of seating and we were lucky with the weather so ate outside every evening (BBQ was good size and well used by us!). There is even a covered outdoor area for eating with lighting.
Inside, the layout of the house is quite confusing, with 2 kitchens on different sides of the house, and a utility room (with a dishwasher and washing machine) in the middle of the house. But it works well. Bedrooms were all a good size, beds were comfortable, and the children loved their individual pods in the dormitory. We all suffered with plenty of mosquito bites (it became a bit of a competition), just a warning...
In the local area there is plenty to do. An easy cycle ride down to Dalfsen for a huge ice cream was a popular activity with the children. There is a lookout tower on the way and a chain ferry across the canal which was fun. We also had a great day at Walibi and took the train to Amsterdam.
All in all, a great holiday, we will be returning in the future.
