Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Wijdenes

4 Bedrooms, 1200sqm garden, private, large living space, near Amsterdam and lake

A lovely white English country house with a small orchard, a secluded back garden with a patio and lots of space around the house. The house was build on a "mound". A "mound" is a man-made piece of land in between the fields and waterways (polders). This is why the house is a little higher and the place is surrounded by little canals. There is a fence along the backyard, but not in the front garden / orchard. We renovated the house in 2001, and builded a large extension; dining / garden room with woodstove (15 seats) to the house in 2010. Upstairs the house has 4 bedrooms: 1 bedroom with queen-size bed, 1 bedroom with a double bed and additional sofa bed, 1 bedroom with a single bed (1 extra single bed can be added, one small additional bedroom with 2double sofa bed. The bathroom Has A toilet, whirlpool bath and shower (non-standing) and extra shower cabin. Downstairs you will find a fully equipped kitchen, 1 toilet. The living room has a fireplace, a study corner, two comfortable sofas, English books, HD television / DVD (English speaking DVDs) stereo, Playstation 3, Wii, computer with DVD, CDROM and access to WiFi Internet. The dining room is spacious and Has A large table (15P). The interior is like cottage, very sunny and cozy. It is our permanent house but it still feels like being on holiday living here.

In the garage you will find all the things you need for living outside: Large BBQ, chairs, beds, umbrellas.

We can providence a baby cot.


Guests have access to the entire property-which includes 4 bedrooms, one bathroom with whirlpool bath, a separate WC, a living room, large kitchen with large dining room. 1200 sqm garden. Parking is on the premises.

The Neighbourhood

The best of Holland! We do not even know where to start telling you about this beautiful and unique spot. From our living room you see the dike of the IJsselmeer, the interior lake or Holland. You can walk to the dike, 10 minutes, Where There are little shell hidden beaches on the shore of the IJsselmeer. We live in the middle of fruit orchards and gardens, fields with cows and sheep, tulip and flower fields, mills. Wijdenes is like a few other surrounding villages, a small village with nice houses and old farmhouses. Wijdenes is a good base to make many trips. Our village is only a 40 minutes drive from downtown Amsterdam (good train connection from Horn park and ride), 40 minutes from North Sea beaches and 10 minutes away from 17th century Hoorn and Enkhuizen. Our house lies in between Hoorn and Enkhuizen. Horn used to be the first V. O. C. harbor before Amsterdam. Horn is a small city with beautiful houses from the golden century, It has a famous harbor and cosey, nice museums and a good shopping street. Enkhuizen is narrower, just as old and quite cute. Enkhuizen Has A very special museum: the Zuiderzee museum; a small village exactly how it used to be When The interior lake was still a sea. Bone healing in cities you have many water sports facilities (sailing, kite surfing, etc.) In our village you can buy fruits, vegetables, goat cheese, flowers, milk products at the houses. Many houses have there own stand next to the street, where clause it is still safe to put your money just in a box. Within a 5 minutes drive or less there is golf course, you can go horseback riding, play tennis and there is a swimming pool (April to September), very nearby. Our Village Has A small supermarket just for the necessities in the next village (5 minutes drive) there is a larger supermarket and two bakery shops.
