You always dreamed of a vacation in an old farmhouse in the countryside. Then come and stay in our house close to nature and enjoy the relaxed and peaceful country life in Ostfriesland (East Frisia). Our house is great for large families.

The space
Our cozy "Fehnhaus" is an old captain's house from the first half of the 19th Century. This type of house is typical for the region. The house is a listed building and has been renovated in recent years.

We can accommodate up to 20 people. The house is perfect for families.

The living area with beds for nine people, spread across three bedrooms with two or three beds and two slugs (beds built into the wall, typical for this kind of houses). The living area is about 100 square meters large. The living room has a fireplace.
Connected to the living area is the barn where the animals have previously been held. In the old barn, on the hayloft (1st floor, right under the thatched roof), are 12 beds in dorm-style. There is no heater available in the barn. In the groundfloor of the barn, you can sit by the fireplace, play or eat in a large group.
We can't use the dorm as sleeping place during winter season due to lack of heater.

In the 2,000 square meters garden there is plenty of space to play and relax. In particular there are a sandpit, two swings, fruit trees, an old bakery, a shed with bikes, chairs and tables.

Enjoy your time in a well preserved, original "Fehnhaus" directly in touch with mother nature.

Guest access
Guests have access to all rooms and the big garden. As we don't live in the property it will be entirely yours.

Other things to note
Important note for stay between November and February:
We only can host 9 persons during winter time. You can't use the beds in the barn because the barn has no heater.
