A lovely holiday in a beautiful spot

5 of 5
The house was ideal for our needs, comfortable and clean, and the corner plot gives it fabulous views across the fields. The oven is very small so don't plan pizzas, but kitchen is otherwise very well equipped with kettle, toaster, coffee percolator, microwave etc. The site is peaceful and the kids really enjoyed the swimming pool. The bike hire was a great advantage and the cycling was fantastic and brilliantly safe with most roads having separate cycle paths along side. We all easily cycled to the beach and enjoyed use of the beach hut. A great holiday!

The perfect little hideaway!

5 of 5
I stayed here recently prior to a business trip in Amsterdam with my partner and we have a fantastic time. This is essentially a self contained, detached apartment in the garden of a nice house. Super peaceful and quiet, yet walking or cycling distance to shops, bars and quality restaurants. A slightly further cycle is Alkmaar which is also a great place to visit. The accommodation was really well designed, clean and quality fixtures throughout, everything needed for a perfect 'home from home' escape. The owners are really pleasant and leave you to get on with your holiday, yet on hand should help be required. Overall I would certainly recommend this. Ideal to have cycles with you as it serves as an excellent base for touring.. David H, Rossendale, UK
