Enjoy your holiday at Farm-house Twijzelerheide. This beautiful old farm dates back to 1916 and has been completely restored. The farm is situated in the middle of lakes and woods in the province of Friesland. As some of the facilities in this small-scale hotel are shared with other guests, it's easy to get to know each other here. Take the lounge, for instance, where there is a television, a seating area, a radio and CD player as well as a games cupboard. A communal breakfast is also served here. The Farm-house has four Double Rooms with an en suite shower and toilet. There are also two Family Rooms with a double bed and bunk beds; the room's shower and toilet are located in the corridor. All rooms come with satellite television or Digitenne.The six-person Family Room is an ideal solution for smaller groups comprising a maximum of 6 people. This room has good beds, two of which are bunk beds, a private patio, and free WiFi; the private shower and toilet located next to the room.
Outside is simply wonderful. The magnificent, spacious garden shelters many patios, perfect for a barbecue in summer. A kids pool is set up here during really hot weather. The protected natural water on the hotel grounds is also particularly special, a place where game used to come and drink. It's called a 'pingo', and was formed during the last ice age. This beautiful area in Friesland has remained untouched by mass tourism. The authentic peace and quiet from days gone by can still be experienced here. Nice trips out in the hotel's vicinity include paying a visit to places such as the Bergumermeer lake, the characteristic town of Dokkum, or the internationally renowned herb garden, Kruidhof. A swimming pool and horse riding facilities are also nearby. The hotel offers bicycle hire. The pleasant city of Leeuwarden is only 20 kilometres away from the hotel.
The Farm-house is also used as a 'reflection hotel'. A place where you can really take the time to come back to who you are. What's more, it's possible to consult a trained coach in order to gain new insights and seek counsel and advice.

Cold, damp inn in pretty countryside!
The Farm itself is lovely as is the location - quiet, restful and surrounded by the beautiful Friesian countryside. Villages are nearby, with a car or bike. The lady running the Farm was pleasant and helpful.
The room was cold and damp. Apparently the central heating is turned off in the evenings and with cold rainy weather, we nearly froze to death. Due to the poor heating, the towels NEVER could dry, which can lead to bad smells/mould. This is also a cash only establishment and Hotels.NL needs to clearly state this.
*my tipThis is a reasonably priced inn in pretty countryside, but needs improvements (allowance of heat overnight, an exhaust fan system in the windowless, equally damp bathroom) before it can be recommended.
Very friendly helpful staff. No problems at all. The breakfast was great, homemade bread was fantastic. Our room in the main house was recently renovated and the bathroom was very nice.
