Holiday Home De Eik (The Oak)
This semi-detached cottage with its distinctive red and green shutters was drastically renovated in 2012 en refurbished again 2017. It is situated in the middle of the woods and offers peace and quiet as well as a view over meadows and woodlands. One may spot roe deer, hares or buzzards as well as the farmer at work depending on the season of the year.
The cottage shares the lawn with the other half of the cottage, de Beuk (the Beech) although its terrace is shielded and private.
This charming little cottage was built in 1912 but offers modern comfort. It sleeps 4 people, although one bedroom would be best suitable for children.
The layout is as follows: the front door opens into a small entrance hall with access to all the other rooms. A cosy living room with a digital television set, a kitchen with an oven, stove, microwave oven, fridge and dishwasher and the dinner-table.
A separate toilet is also on the ground floor as well as a bathroom with a shower and a double washing basin. Further there is a laundry cabinet with a washing machine and a dryer.
A rather narrow and steep staircase leads up to the two double bedrooms on the first floor under the roof. Because of its steepness this cottage is not suitable for smaller children or the elderly.
Pets are not allowed.
The Heather fields of the protected ‘The Stulp’ area are within 10 minutes walking distance where one may observe water foul on the ‘Pluismeer’ from a watchingpost or run into the large white herd of ‘Charolais’ cows. The picturesque village Lage Vuursche where one goes for pancakes is a 25 minute walk and ‘Paleis Soestdijk’ with its beautiful gardens is less than a 10 minute drive on the N234.
The cottage is particularly suitable for those who are fond of nature and like to take (long) walks.
