Description

De Kleine Oele, (Meaning the little owl) is a traditional Dutch grounds cottage available for relaxed holiday rental, inspirational retreat, selfcatering or bed&breakfast, in a pretty garden (part semi-wild, part herb and fruit) in the real, ultimate Dutch countryside: amidst the hay and corn fields, black and white cows and occasionally bulbs.Great for both families and the romantic getaway. Private drive with ample parking space.

It is situated next to our farmhouse style home along a sandy path with three other houses, bordering on the Reestdal Nature Reserve in the province of Overijssel (ca 1.5 hrs drive from Amsterdam). 30 km from the German border, exactly in between the cities of Groningen en Nijmegen, it is the perfect central position for interesting trips in all directions of the Netherlands and beyond. The famous village of Staphorst, the ' Dutch Amish' where the real (non touristy) Dutch costume is still worn is a bikeride away. Giethoorn (the 'Venice

The famous village of Staphorst, the ' Dutch Amish' where the real (non touristy) Dutch costume is still worn is a bikeride away. Giethoorn (the 'Venice of the North' ) is thirty miles off. Although rural and traditional, the area, in which tourism is only recently developing, the social atmosphere is one of friendliness, laissez-faire and tolerance. Farmer of adjacent fields does not mind access of them, please do take into account that agricultural surroundings do sometimeans means field work going on, and in summer water pumping and - spraying in effect. The direct area of the villages of Balkbrug and Dedemsvaart provide shopping, restaurants, pubs, a coffeeshop, and dance venues.

* We have listed the property as ' not suitable' for restricted mobility because we have not implemented any special facilities, nor is those a real option in the type of cottage.

We don't mind the sounds of children and pets enjoying themselves -or having a bit of a howl :) . Farmer of adjacent fields does not mind entrance etc.

*Refuse is included in the price. However, we pay for the refuse collecting by weight in our area, which is collected once a month. Therefore we appreciate seperating compost, plastic, and rest and a small contribution to the disperse of disposable nappies is appreciated, and therefore, unfortunately we have to count ' under two's' as a full person too!

*Smoking is not allowed in the cottage itself, but it is in the conservatory and back garden room.
