From the minute we arrived at De Wagenhuis we were made to feel super at home and welcomed. Nothing was too much trouble and Raymond and his family were so kind and accommodating. The rooms were beautifully furnished and so clean. The staff were very kind and so patient during breakfast time as we are a large family group.

We had a wonderful weekend at De Wagenhuis. Andrew and Anneke were welcoming and made us feel at home and nothing was too of a trouble for them. The farm is quiet and offers a lovely tranquil atmosphere. The food was delicious and the portions meant we did not go hungry.
