This is what we all hope to get on a holiday: lovely cottage with own meadow, woods and brook. A hilly landscape for beautiful walks. The Baltic sea at 20 km and the world renowned city of Luebeck at 30 mins. Leaving will prove to be difficult.....
Guests' emails told us:
- the house is an absolute dream,
- we enjoyed the house (and the garden / land around it is amazing), we will certainly visit again,
- we were thrilled by the creativity and the love for detail in the cottage.

The space
The thatched cottage has been here for more than 250 years; probably it has been the house of the fuller (the watermill at the brook is long gone, however) whose occupation was the fulling or waulking of cloth. We (Nathalie - a Hessian - and Arthur - a Dutchman) bought it in 2006 and have renovated it thoroughly. Because we wanted to keep the old charm as much as possible, you'll still find old beams and clay walls. At the same time we wanted to enhance it with more comfort and have more daylight flow into the cottage. We put in dormer windows on the second floor and have other amenities like a modern heating system.
The house is practically one of the last houses on the edge of the village: to the south and east of the cottage you'll find no neighbouring house, just a meadow and woods: seven acres of own property. A brook flows through it (well, maybe in August one should better speak of 'trickles through').
The european hiking trail E1 (the North Cape to Sicily) is just around the corner, so beautiful hikes to Eutin, Luebeck, or the highest elevation north of the Harz mountains: the Bungsberg, cannot be easier: simply follow the white cross on black!

During your stay

The cottage is all for you. In the barn there's an extra unit consisting of bedroom, living room with sofabed, and a small bathroom. Several reasons brought us to living in Frankfurt mostly now. So you won't have us around. Sorry about that .....;-) But in case of questions, I'll make sure to be standbye on cellphone / mobile phone.
