The Netherlands is one of the most popular holiday destinations for people travelling from the UK, and going on holiday in Stadskanaal makes for a charming and enjoyable break. Historically, the town has been well known for peat mining, but the canal that is mentioned in the name of the town is one of the attractive features of this delightful place. There are several accommodation possibilities, with perhaps the best being a holiday rental house in Stadskanaal which offers a home away from home feel, complete with all mod-cons.

We wished we could use the Sauna that was in the property but could not read the instructions, that was the only down side beautiful views from the property friendly people on site a great restaurant, well worth visiting. The owner of the Property Mr D. Strankinga was really helpful. Would we go back YES we have spoken with the owner about Re - booking the property again, if you want a good holiday with great views this is the place.

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.
