From the owner

For Corona measures see below.

This is a place where you can totally relax in a very private atmosphere.

You'll feel yourselves completely "out of this world ", in the peace and quiet of this special house in a village that seems to float "out of time". . . .

This cosy cottage, the "Lutje Hoeske" is situated in Tinallinge, a beautiful little village on a “terp” ( an artificial mound) in the impressive Groninger countryside.

Tinallinge is very special: an unspoilt northern Groninger village of 20 houses and farm-buildings clustered around the old church, timeless and green, imbedded in peace and quiet.

Since we have bought the former Poorhouse in the 90-ies, it is completely restored, carefully preserving the authentic exterior.

Inside we kept also many old elements, which we 've combined with modern comfort.

The cottage is tastefully decorated to match the historic value.

It is ideal for those who want to enjoy nature, silence, peace and quiet, in an authentic setting.

The restoration of our lovely house is now almost complete, and we are happy to offer the “Lutje Hoeske” for rent, to enable other persons to enjoy this unique place.

The ground floor has a living room (with double sofa bed) a small, fully equipped nostalgic kitchen, a lavish bathroom with an antique bathtub, modern sauna and steam bath (Turkish bath ) and a separate toilet.

The upper floor has a spacious romantic bedroom with a double bed.

Tinallinge is situated 20 km. north of the city of Groningen, 6 km as the crow flies south of the Wadden Sea.

It is located on the Groningen “Hoogeland”, the countrysitde with its historic farms: vast estates with magnificent views, small forgotten “terp” villages and small winding streams.

There are numerous bike/excursion possibilities.

• The beautiful village of Eenrum has a clog factory and a mustard dairy: both of which can be visited.

• The seal sanctuary in Pieterburen is well known.

• A delicious lunch at the beautiful Reitdiep in Garnwerd a welcome change

• Warffum has an open-air museum and

• the "heerendorp" Usquert beautiful houses of the architect Berlage.

• Look also to the monumental farmhouses everywhere!

and all this within 15 km cycling distance!

Beyond that:

* A day trip to one of the West Frisian Islands is very nice and

* a visit to the city of Groningen is simple: the station is 1.5 km from the "Lutje Hoeske", in less than half an hour, you are on the main market square.

As for the Corona measures, we have made the following adaptations:

- the Lutje Hoeske has been blocked for renting right from the start of the Corona outbreak, because we wanted to keep our village Corona free (and this has been successful so far!).

The rent will start again cautiously from 21 May.

This implies

- that guests are asked in advance not to come if one (or more) of them has symptoms related to the Corona vrius (such as cough, fever, etc ..)

- we have blocked a day for rent (at least 24 hours) prior to your arrival

- the house is not only cleaned but also disinfected,

- The sauna and steam bath are in the Lutje Hoeske itself, so only for you,

- there is no physical contact with the landlord. You will receive a code to open the door.

With this we not only meet the Corona requirements which websites such as Tripadvisor and AirBnB has set, but also our own wishes.

In this way, guests of the Lutje Hoeske can safely enjoy a relaxing holiday.
