After a healthy farm breakfast you can enjoy the day on the veranda or explore the farm and surrounding area. Here you and your family can enjoy peace and quietness, friendly service and hospitality

The farm house has a warm and loving atmosphere of friendliness and comfort and consists of a dining area with original furniture, sun porch with a view that sooths the soul, 5 bedrooms and can accommodate 14 people and an additional baby. Each room is unique and has its own bathroom. For the cold winter nights there is a heart-warming fire-place where tales can be passed on from one generation to the next.

Piece and quietness is not only an essential for the body, but for the soul as well. We will be your home from home.
