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.
Our stay was very short but we truly enjoyed the house with all tastely designed items which you can buy if you want. We could feel very relaxed there. The children found a huge treasure box with Lego and boarding games. And the fridge was packed with water, wine, beer and some snacks ( payable extra but really, really cheap). Very handy if you didn’t have time go shopping! There is beautiful beach nearby and a train to Amsterdam. I can highly recommend this cosy cottage .
