Warm, cosy & great hospitality. We spend a week here during Xmas. This is how the old settlers must have felt! Will be back during warmer days, fishing is the thing than! Thanks a lot Rita, (& husband for towing us out of the mud....)
We were greeted by Rita on a rather windy horrible evening, but once we stepped into the cottage it was warm and lovely. We were excited to see the cottage and the cottage looked even better in life than pictures.
Rite was really helpful and she showed us everything and even left some wine, chocolate, bread, egg and candles. She also left a booklet in which everything around the cottage was explained. From how to use the shower to how to use the tv. The booklet was really helpful. The garden in which the cottage was in was beautiful me and my boyfriend took the time to investigate the garden and it was nothing but beautiful.
Although i recommend you hire a car for your stay there, as a lot of the shops and inner village life is far away. A bike would be useful too.
We throughly enjoyed out stay here, mainly we enjoyed being away from the city and enjoying the country side. This place is great to just get away from everything.
We would defiantly visit rockanji again.
We arrived not really knowing what to expect having driven past the industrial areas of Europort and Rotterdam. On arrival we had a warm welcome from Rita who showed us the cottage and suana and explained how to light the wood burning stove to ensure cosy Spetember evenings.
We (2 of us) had all we needed and stocked up on provisions in Brielle, about 4 Km away.
We rented the bikes and explored the area, visiting small towns that Rita suggested, ate some good bar food at lunchtimes and generally returned to watch the sun go down and / or enjoy a sauna in the garden.
The cottage was great for us - we wanted a peaceful week with the opportunity to get out and about and see the surrounding area and that is what we got.
Rita and John were helpful and friendly but left us to ourselves and we have no hesitation in recommending this destination to people seeking a similar experience. Highlights - the sauna, peace and quiet and sitting on the deck, watching the stars.
We loved this lodge, which is cosy with lots of extra touches and attention to detail. I’d fallen in love with it from the pictures and the reality was even better. The lodge is surprisingly spacious and well equipped with a small kitchen, modern shower room, sitting area and wood burning stove. There are two single beds in the loft and a double ‘box bed’ in the living room - ideal for a small family. Added extras included wifi, sauna and a very nice welcome tray.
The grounds are amazing and we had use of the garden and extensive grounds which include a lake, ponds and a small wood. Picnic tables were available by the lake and in the garden and there were seating areas all over the grounds to take advantage of the fantastic scenery. Our daughter enjoyed, as did we, exploring the grounds and visiting the friendly geese, goats and chickens.
The farm is located within easy cycle ride of Rockanje and Brielle and we cycled most days despite the rather rainy August. Rockanje has a beautiful but windy beach and Brielle is a lovely old town with shops and cafes.
Rita and John were very friendly and helpful, making us feel welcome yet giving us our privacy. We had the place to ourselves really - unless we needed something and then they couldn’t have been more helpful.
We definitely want to come back.
Der Kurzurlaub bei John & Rita war perfekt. Das Vermieterehepaar die ebenfalls auf dem Grundstück leben sind sehr zuvorkommend und freundlich. Sie haben uns das ganze Grundstück überlassen aber sich dezent zurückgezogen, sodass wir dort eine absolut ruhige Zeit verbracht haben. Das Häuschen selber ist sehr romantisch und perfekt eingerichtet. Die Sauna hatten wir an drei Tagen komplett für uns, wie das Holzhaus wird sie mit einem Holzofen befeuert und kann wenn man will rund um die Uhr genutzt werden (keine festen Saunazeiten wie in Hotels). Die Lage ist perfekt für Ausflüge. Der Strand ist nur fünf Autominuten entfernt, in 20 Minuten ist man aber auch in Rotterdam, bekommt aber von der Stadt nichts mit. Das Haus liegt inmitten von Wiesen und Feldern, ein ständiges Vogelgezwitscher und viele Schwäne und Enten die dort brüten.
Fazit: Für einen romantischen Urlaub am Meer gibt es kein idyllischeren Ort. Wir kommen bestimmt wieder.
The cottage on our estate 'Landgoed de Tinteling' is located at the countryside in the middle of 'Voorne' (South Holland islands), and is beautifully situated. Dunes, beaches, Haringvliet and villages such as Brielle, Oostvoorne, Rockanje and Hellevoetsluis, are an approx. 15 minutes bike ride away.
Famous attractions include the Delta Works protecting Holland against the sea. The beaches are famous for a lot of activities, such as sun bathing, swimming, kite-surfing, sailing, fishing etc.. Oostvoorne and the Grevelingen are well known for scuba-diving.
The dunes of this island belong to Europeans most rich ecosystems with a large diversity of species.
