Make A Holiday Rental House in Stadskanaal, Holland, Your Home Away From Home

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.

Things to Do on Holiday in Stadskanaal, Holland

Like much of the Netherlands, Stadskanaal is a wonderful place for cycling and walking, and there are regular Nordic Walking tours of the town available. Many people who take a holiday rental house in Stadskanaal may find that there are courtesy bicycles there, but if not, they will be able to rent a bike from the town very easily.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Stadskanaal, Holland

People who are staying at their self-catering accommodation in Stadskanaal will be able to visit a number of attractions in the area, such as the magnificent Dolmens Centre in nearby Borger, which has many impressive stone structures from the Neolithic period. There is also the option of visiting the Bourtange Fort which is a short distance away, and is a spectacular example of a Star Fort. Finally, there are two nature reserves that are to be found near the town that are also well worth visiting.

Weather in Stadskanaal, Holland

The location of the town in the north east of the Netherlands means that the climate is actually quite cool compared to areas of the country further south. Those who choose a holiday rental house in Stadskanaal will be able to enjoy a climate that is quite similar to that of the United Kingdom, albeit a little more humid, and the area is prone to periods of rainfall in the spring and summer. Although the winter can be fairly cold, it is rare for the region to suffer with extended cold snaps or heavy snowfall.

When it comes to getting to the area, there is an airport in the nearby city of Groningen (GRQ), although the only way to get to Groningen without changing airline is to fly from Aberdeen (ABZ).

Another popular option, particularly for people who live in the south of the UK, is to drive over using the regular ferries between Dover and Calais. This then gives the use of a car during the vacation.

                                                                                                  Our lovely hosts both spoke perfect English and immediately welcomed us with fresh slices of cake. 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.

Die Wohnung mit vier Doppelzimmern, zwei WC/Duschräumen und zusätzlicher Toilette bietet zusammen mit einer großzügigen Lounge / Wohnzimmer und Eßküche einen angenehmen Ort für Zusammenkünfte. Die Vermieter Joke und Anthon sind sehr freundliche und hilfsbereite Gastgeber. Die Lage ist Ideal um diese interessante und schöne Region von Holland zu erkunden. Wir unternahmen Ausflüge nach Groningen um Museen und historische Gebäude zu besuchen. Im Ort gibt es einen Fahrradverleih so daß Radausflüge leicht arrangiert werden können. Der große gepflegte Garten mit Terasse und Grillecke lädt ein auch am Haus gemütliche Tage und Abende zu verbringen. Ein Binnensee ist ganz in der Nähe und das Meer kann man in weniger als einer halben Stunde mit dem Auto erreichen. Die charaktervollen Hühner und der Hahn setzten dem ganzen noch das i-Tüpfelchen auf: sie waren bei unseren Kindern ein grosser Hit, aber auch wir Erwachsenen hatten unsere Freude daran. Wir können diese Ferienwohnung uneingeschränkt unseren Freunden und Bekannten weiterempfehlen. Jon und Familie

The owner of the house was accommodating and helpful, and we felt very welcome. It was great to stay in an old but very well maintained house - clean and cosy.The courtyard was full of beautiful flowers, and we enjoyed sitting there at any time of the day. In the stable, adjacent to the kitchen, we could follow three horses - one was a sweet little foal. Eexterzandvort is a perfect place to stay, if you want to visit beautiful nature reserve. We have never seen so many butterflies, wild birds, storks etc. in a week! We can't think of anything that should be improved, and we are already looking forward to return as soon as possible.
