Make a self catering cottage or holiday rental in Utrecht, Netherlands your home away from home

Utrecht is the small but densely populated region in the centre of the Netherlands mainland. It is centred around the old city of Utrecht which was established by the Romans in 47AD and is one of the oldest towns in the Netherlands. It has several bustling cities as well as picturesque villages, castles and residences to enjoy from a self-catering holiday base in this area.

Things to Do in Utrecht

The beautiful countryside around the well-located Utrecht holiday rentals is ideal for walking and cycling. Horseback riding and canal boat trips are also a popular way to enjoy the countryside whilst Utrecht is a pleasant city for sightseeing. As with most places in the Netherlands, sampling the local cheeses is a real pleasure, especially the mature Edam and Gouda cheeses along with local Dutch favourites.

Places to Visit Around Utrecht

The main city of Utrecht has an old center with a Medieval cathedral tower which dominates the skyline and several canals. There is also the Centraal Museum and a Museum of Modern Design, now called the Rietveld-Schroder-Huis Museum with many design exhibits. The smaller towns of Loenen, Wijk bij Duurstede and Amerongen are all well worth spending time visiting. There are several old castles around your Utrecht holiday rentals including the Kasteel Loenersloot in Loenen, Slot Zuylen and the well-known neo-Gothic architecture Kasteel De Haar. The city of Amersfoort has a well-preserved historic centre with small shops and markets which give a taste of provincial life in the Utrecht region.

Nice place, very close to lovely old town centre.

4 of 5
The "garden house" is pleasant and very convenient for the lovely old town centre of Amersfoort as well as being central for many other trips around Holland.

My stay at The Wise Owl

5 of 5
My wife and I stayed in The Wise Owl from July 8 to 15 2017. Mr Klass met us at the park reception and took us to the chalet and showed us around. We found it very spacious and clean and everything we needed was provided. There was also English speaking channels on the tv and there were many dvds to watch and cds to listen to. There is a large deck outside with tables and benches. This is covered which has it's advantages and disadvantages. It's nice to sit out there even when it's raining because you don't get wet but if you would like a lazy day chilling out and resting after a hard day the day before you wont get any sunbathing done out there. Wifi is provided but you can only have 1 item at a time but that isn't a problem because the holday park provides wifi and if you need to use more than item you can logon to that. The park is very quiet and has a 10 km/h speed limit which is enforsed by hundreds of speed humps so it's safe for children and just opposite the chalet is a small childrens play area. Entrance to the park is by a key pass that Mr Klass provides so no one that shouldn't be there can get in. There is parking space for one "Smallish" car at the chalet. I don't think an estate car will fit. But there are parking spaces along the road a little way. Next to the park is a forest that is very nice for walks. There are many shops and supermarkets in Veenendaal, which is 5 km from the holiday park. The exit to the A12 motorway is also in Veenendaal and from there the Dolfinarium is 45 minutes. Royal Flora in Aalsmeer is less than an hour. Rotterdam zoo, Delft pottery, The Hague, Madurodam and the beach are about an hour and Amsterdam is a little over an hour. Overall it's a lovely chalet and a very friendly and very quiet holiday park and I highly recommend it. It's very large with plenty of room for a couple or a family with 3 children.
