We really enjoyed a lovely 2 days at Sir Douwe's estate! A unique and bigscale eccentric (in a good way) project! Our view from the tower room , (an upgrade I beleive) was fabulous - with windows on all four sides. Perfect spot for bird and sky lovers. Particulalry enjoyed the outdoor balcony, and view of the dyke, water, and cyclists. We enjoyed meeting Sir Douwe and talking with him about his land, horses, goats, buildings, and projects. A very special place, that adventurous and broadminded travellers will love. A bit of an oasis hidden in 'middle Holland' neatness. If you like Travel Lodge or Holiday Inn type hotel sort of places, this may not be for you, but perfect for spiriteded minded adventurers.
