Our cottage got a big fresh-up when we became the new owners. We have re-designed it with new amenities/furniture etc. It is located on a Recreational Park, at the edge of the Maashorst, a beautiful nature reserve in Brabant.
The cottage is older, but has central heating, double glazing and a pellet heat stove for the colder winter months. Behind the cottage you are on the fields: Holland in its purest form.

2 adults+2 kids+1 baby (5 total).
Located between other cottages on a holiday park.

The space
The house is an older, wooden cottage, and over the years some extensions have been added on by previous owners. We have now re-organised these spaces, which resulted in a nice pleasant, open living / dining space with freestanding tub in the garden room. There are lots of windows and there is a big dining table with seating for 4 people (+ baby chair available).
The kitchen is compact but functional. There is an electrical stove, fridge (with small freezer) and dishwasher (no oven).
The living area has a large comfy couch, from which you can see the garden and the television (Smart TV). Underneath the couch are drawers filled with kids toys and books / magazines.

Between the couch and the dining area there is a fireplace (pellet stove), including a cozy seating area. There is also a record player and some old records.
There is a bed box (bed stay) for the adults with a comfy double bed.

From the dining area you can access the bathroom (shower), as well as the kids bedroom with holds a bunkbed and optional (travel) babybed. Only children are allowed in the bunkbed due to weight issues.

From the living room you enter the Garden Room where you find the bathtub.

Outside is our Infrared sauna in the shack in the back of the garden.

Also note that the house is on the countryside (although on the outer edge of a recreational park ) and yes, there are spiders and insects here. It's a part of nature, they belong here, they live here, so there is not much we can do about them.
There is also a fish pond. Completely guarded off by a fence, but fun for kids to observe. There are also moles in the garden once in a while, we dont poison then but leave them alone. Yes they make holes in the grass but we dont mind.

Where you’ll be

Schaijk, Noord-Brabant, Netherlands

The cottage is located on the PRIVATE PART (park Blokland) of Recreational Park de Heidebloem. It has neighbouring houses on two sides, a street with private parking in the front of the house, and a view from the garden behind the house.
As Park Blokland owners, we have access to the Recreatiepark Heidebloem facilities (pool, playground, bike rental,...). You have to walk/drive through Recreational Park the Heidebloem, to get to Park Blokland.
In our garden is a backfence, you can use that to start walking, or biking through the area, without having to cross Recreational Park the Heidebloem every time.

There is a range of small, picturesque, idyllic villages nearby, such as Grave, Schaijk, Ravenstein and Zeeland that will certainly charm you.

You can enjoy walking or cycling in the De Maashorst Nature Reserve. The 3,500 hectares of pure natural beauty demand to be discovered. It is the surprising green heart of Brabant.
De Maashorst has, for example the “Docus de Das-pad”, a very nice forest kids trail. The entrance is next to the Boshut (camping hartje groen).

If you're looking for a larger city and more entertainment, you are in Den Bosch in 15 minutes drive. Nijmegen and Eindhoven are also not too far!
