Rural location on the Elfsteden route, on the edge of the Leeuwarder forest we rent out our "6 person coach house". The former coach house we have converted into a beautiful apartment and is next to our farm with private terrace on the south. Do you want to stay in a quiet environment where nature plays the main role then this apartment is for you. We, Ate and Gerda are owners since 2016 and have made our farm in Jelsum completely sustainable.

The space
An apartment near the city (4 km), but in the middle of nature where you can very well cycle, fish or doing water sports (electric bikes, boat and canoe for rent, jetty for boats. Furthermore we grow and sell organic vegetables and fruit and you will find sheep and chickens. Storks and deer are also regular guests with us. Your bike in 10 minutes to Leeuwarden, but if you want to cycle a part of the Elfsteden route then you are next to Bartlehiem via a pound. On the way in Wyns a bite to eat and afterward the cook can transfer you to the otherside with the pound! It's all possible in Friesland. A day on the Island Ameland? Visit The Dutch Wadden Islands, you are by car in 22 minutes at the ferry that can drop you in half an hour transfer for a nice day by the beach. And last but not least Friesland is the 3rd best place to visit according to the Lonely Planet! .Be surprised and come enjoy us.

(free Netflix and Wifi) There is here also a loft with stairs to sleeping space number 3. You have 2 separate beds where you can also make 1 large bed. The bedrooms on the lofts are only reachable with a staircase and are open and therefore not suitable for small children.

Other things to note
The bedrooms on the lofts are only accessible by stairs.
In the guesthouse there are 2 staircases to the loft. Small children will need guidance when 'climbing' on this staircase. Around the country house there are several ditches that are not protected. Parents will therefore have to keep an eye on their small children themselves.
