You are most welcome in our cosy residential farmhouse on the Northern Frisian countryside.With us you can enjoy peace, space, nature and a beautiful starry sky.
We are situated on the eleven cities route ( elfstedentocht ) , near the beautiful town of Dokkum (5 km) and 
Leeuwarden (20 km) the capital city of Friesland.
The farmhouse is the site of the former Cisterciëncer Monastery of Claercamp what was there from 1165-1580. It is a  location on the countryside with views over the meadows, and in the summer you can see and hear  cattle on the pasture arround.
The wadden Islands Ameland and Schiermonnikoog lie in our vicinity, they are perfect for a day trip. World Herritage the Waddensea is close by and you can make a mudwalk in it, that is a real nice expirience. You can also make a nice long bikeride or walkingtour in the neirby area, or visit National Park Lauwersmeer ( Dark sky Park).
We offer you a breakfast with local products, which we bring in a basket at your door. So you can start the day in peace and make plans for a beautiful day in the area. 

Who we are:
In April 2001 we, Sjoerd Helbig and Matsje Wijtsma, bought this farm.
The main house from 1912 and the barn from the end of the 18th century were in very bad condition. In recent years, we have renovated the entire property - an enormous and long-standing task and challenge.
The main building was reconstructed according to the old conditions. Here and there we have made a few changes, but above all everything is equipped with modern furnishings.
In 2010 the reconstruction work was largely completed, so that we could then concentrate on the design of the garden and the lands. The whole has become a beautiful property on a splendid and unique spot on the route of the "elfstedenroute" (eleven cities route). Every day we enjoy the peace and nature around us. We want to share this with others. That is why we opened our "bed and breakfast" in 2011: small, but fine.
For a non-binding offer please use the function "reserveren" or call us (dutch & english).
