Peace and Quiet. In our atmospheric ecological Shepherd's hut you can enjoy the Ruinen forestry in the front garden and the Dwingelderveld in the backyard is a 10minute bike ride away. Your accommodation has 2 comfortable beds, shower and compost toilet and a kitchenette with fridge. WiFi available. From your raised terrace you have a view over the fields where you can watch the sun go down while enjoying a glass of wine. From the edge of our yard with its own entrance, you can discover Ruinen

The space
Your Shepherd's cabin is sustainable, ecological and equipped with all conveniences. Sie reaches your stay over a Drenths Keienpad. It stands on the edge of the plot. In the morning you might spot a few roe deer, the squirrel in the bush next to you and the swallows soaring over the fields. The residence is built of sustainable materials and well insulated. The water used is purified through a reed filter and feeds the fruit trees just like the product from the compost toilet. You have two beds, which you can turn into sofas during the day, an attractive wood stove, but also electric heating. French doors give you access to a lovely terrace from which you can watch nature pass by.

Hai ik ben Katja, getrouwd met Ton. We zijn in 2021 gaan hosten op Airbnb, eigenlijk per ongeluk. Nou ja, per ongeluk. Ton had voor mij een prachtige thuiswerkplek gebouwd op een kar van de schaapherder uit Havelte, toen ik zei … je kan er wel een B&B van maken zo leuk ziet ie eruit … ja einde verhaal … thuiswerkplek kwijt … Airbnb geboren. En we vinden het super leuk!

We houden van: Creatief zijn, werken met onze handen, onze ‘Charlie en zijn chooksters’, onze jonge border ‘Dozer’ (die ook een echte Dozer is), onze chagrijnige ‘Poeisel’ (op zijn eigen manier ook lief), de natuur, we houden van de vogels, we houden ervan om het anderen naar de zin te maken en we houden van Permaculture en zelfvoorzienend leven. We hebben onze Permaculture trainingen gedaan in Oostenrijk (Sepp Holzer) en Australië (Geoff Lawton) en zijn nu ons eigen plekje aan het creëren (Ton). The Shepherd's hut staat dan ook in een grote Permacultuur tuin, verwacht daarom geen aangeharkte perkjes. Onze tuin is niet netjes volgens grote mensen maatstaven, maar wel natuurlijk en echt barstensvol met leven :-). Genoeg feest in de brouwerij in de tuin. Bijna alles wat er bij ons gebeurt op het terrein gebeurt met een reden. We proberen alles wat in de tuin staat eetbaar te laten zijn. Water bv houden we ook zolang mogelijk op het terrein, wat je ook weer terug ziet in de Shepherd’s hut met zijn helofytenfilter die uitkomt op een wadi.

Ennnnn we vinden het fijn als anderen hier ook van genieten.

Note 1: The Shepherd's hut is located in a large Permaculture garden, please don't expect raked beds. Our garden is therefore not neat, but natural and really really bursting with life :-). Enough party for life in the garden.

Note 2: With us, what you see is what you get! We simply do not charge a cleaning fee for linen costs. That's just included in the price. No marketing situations.

Note 3: On Sundays, you can check out at 12 noon! :-)
