Things to do
Our B&B is in a beautiful Dutch country side. You can take a long walk or take the bike and explore the lovely quiet country lanes. During springtime you can see flower/tulip fields, cows and sheep in the meadow. Hoogwoud has a small village center and a well known garden center, 'Tuincentrum de Boet'. Lovely shops and a mall are also nearby.
The beach and the dunes are only 26 km. away. Not the crowded beaches but the more quiet ones with some lovely restaurants and enough parking space. During the summer there are some nice markets you don't want to miss. The Westfriese market in Schagen, de famous Cheese market in Alkmaar and the night market in Kolhorn.
Nearby there are some beautiful historical places like Schagen, Alkmaar, Hoorn, Enkhuizen and Medemblik.
In the area you can find many museums and attractions which are also very nice for children; the Zuiderzeemuseum, the Broekerveiling, Vlindorado (indoor butterfly garden) and the Zaanse Schans.
Toeristic information and routes are available.
We all were born and raised here in the area so we can advise you if you have any questions...Just ask us!
