Group space The Silo in combination with five 6-person fishermen’s houses
Group space The Silo is a cosy, round group space with a big wood-burning stove in the middle and seats around it. In the farm across the space is the kitchen belonging to it. The Silo is let in combination with five 6-person houses. The 5 houses offer room for 30 people. During the day, the group can eat, drink, do activities together or meet and at night everyone can sleep soundly in his/her own house.
Next to a wood-burning stove, the round space also has a bar, underfloor heating, dinner tables made from scaffolding-wood with coloured chairs and a terrace with a covered barbecue area. The kitchen is right across The Silo. It is equipped with a six-burner gas cooker, a large fridge, a freezer, a fast dishwasher and a microwave. There are also plenty of pots, pans, plates and cutlery for all guests.
The 5 cosy fishermen’s houses have been built in a typical Zuiderzee style, are situated by the water and are surrounded [KH1] by a wooded bank with walking trails. The houses are perfect for 6 people and have two bedrooms upstairs (each with two single beds) and one double room downstairs. All houses are equipped with a shower, a toilet, central heating, a radio with a CD player, a colour television and a kitchen with a microwave.
The holiday park
At the farm’s yard live typical farm animals like sheep, goats, chickens and geese. The sports pitches (volleyball court, football pitch and tennis court) can be used freely by everyone. There is also exciting playground equipment for smaller children. The go-carts and the pirate ship are very popular, as well as the indoor playing room with playground equipment.
In the vicinity
Our small-scale holiday park is on the border of Overijssel, Flevoland and Friesland. It is near the large Kuinder forest of no less than 1,100 hectares, which is part of many walking trails, cycle trips and riding tracks. The holiday park’s location offers lots of options to go on a touristic trip. A visit to one of the old Zuiderzee villages like Lemmer, Blokzijl, Vollenhove and Urk is definitely worth your time. Friesland’s lakes and Gaasterland’s woods are within half an hour’s drive of the park.
‘De Weerribben – Wieden’ National park with marshland is situated in the ‘Kop van Overijssel’ and above it you can find ‘De Rottige Meenthe’. Together, those areas form a large peat bog, which started to grow in the 18th, 19th and 20th century because of peat extraction. The area is largely open to the public. You can enjoy canoeing, cycling and hiking. The visitors centres at Sint Jansklooster (monastery) and in Ossenzijl are definitely worth a visit. Giethoorn also deserves some extra attention. With its many canals, bridges and lakes, it is also called the Venice of the North.
