Spacious holiday home on a quiet park - fully refurbished in 2016.

Close to a beautiful lake with sandy beach, lovely restaurant, beach-club, working windmill and a massive indoor play barn. Everything is only a couple of minutes walking distance.

There is a walking & cycling path all round the lake which links up to many regional and national cycle ways and gets you into the centre of Winterswijk in about 10 minutes where you can indulge in shopping, culture, food and the local nightlife.

The space

Built in the style of the local old barns this is a light, spacious and characterful holiday house.

The open plan living space includes the well equipped kitchen, dining and living areas, which have great views through the large barn style windows onto the garden. There is a bathroom (Jacuzzi bath, shower & washer/ dryer), extra WC and entrance hall with cloakroom and underfloor heating throughout downstairs.

The master bedroom has a large double bed (160x200) complete with heated blanket. It also has a vintage dressing table (my grandmothers...) - with hair dryer - and a large built-in wardrobe with small wall safe.

The second bedroom has 2 single beds which can easily be put together. As with the master bedroom it comes with built in wardrobes. This room also contains a selection of kids toys, board games and puzzles.

There is a 3rd bedroom / office upstairs in which we have built a toddler bed (160x70) - this doubles as a play area with castle curtains!

There is a shower room upstairs with under-floor heating.

For the little ones - we have a high chair and a cot available, just let us know in advance so we can put it together ready for your arrival.

Wireless/Cable TV:
There is good wireless and a cable TV which has all the main channels from Holland, England and Germany. The TV is a ultraHD flatscreen.

Outside there is lots of space around the house. At the back of the house - which is south facing - there is a patio where we have a round table and chairs with sun umbrella and a sofa/lounge set (cushions available during the Summer months). There is a also a lawn to play football or badminton.

The private road is very quiet and the house has its own gated drive (to keep little ones safely in the garden) and you can park your car out of the sun in the carport. There is a lockable garage with two adult bikes. Other bikes can be rented locally - There are contact details in the house of rental places. There are also other toys stored in there which you are welcome to use (go cart, football, badminton, tennis etc).

My mum and dad live in Winterswijk and will be there to welcome you, explain the house and answer any questions.

A wonderfully relaxing vacation. 3 mile trail around the lake steps from the house great for jogging, walking, and biking. Been visiting friends in Winterswijk a few times, this is by far the best accommodation we have found. Great and accommodating host! Sleep well.

We stayed there for 5 nights. We had a good time especially in the garden which was very private and peaceful. The kids enjoyed playing with the toys. We appreciated that they provided all the essentials for our stay ( bread, tea, coffe, salt, suger, oil, hand soap, dishwasher tablets, washing machine tablets, toilet paper). The host was fast in responding to our questions. We had some difficulties finding the cottage, but we contacted the mother and she was very helpful. The location is great if you're not planning on getting out of Winterswijik. We were planning to take trips by car to Germany and other places so it was very time consuming. It took us 30 mins just to reach the highway.

Gerwin's house in Winterswijk was clean, tidy, chic and very comfortable. The children loved using the bikes, skelter, and had fun playing outside. The lake is lovely for walks and the surrounding areas are beautiful. The communication with Gerwin is very good. We had a very special family time with Mum from Australia.

A great place to relax in the silence of countryside. About 1,5 hours by car to Dusseldorf or Amsterdam.
