‘A beautiful sourrounding’

For years, De Roek has been a wonderful place for those seeking tranquility, nature enthusiasts, and families with young children. A peaceful vacation in nature does wonders for the soul! Curious about what other visitors have to say about De Roek? Take a look at some of the reviews on Zoover.

‘What a beautiful environment! We had the illusion that we were completely alone in a stunning forest full of birds and squirrels. You can simply stroll down the forest path and immerse yourself in nature.’– Margriet Hunik

Hiking or cycling.

Away from the crowds, you can enjoy wonderful hiking and cycling in the beautiful Veluwe nature. The area is perfectly suited for a lovely walk or bike ride. You can easily access the Otterlo forest or De Zanding, and a bit further away, there’s De Planken Wambuis.

You can also complement your peaceful vacation with a cultural excursion. The beautiful Hoge Veluwe National Park (famous for its white bicycles) with the Kröller-Müller Museum is just a 15-minute walk away from De Roek Holiday Cottages.

Mealservice on Friday

Every Friday, our chefs prepare a delicious vegetarian meal for those who are interested. If you arrive on a Friday, the meal will be ready for you upon arrival. Of the €7.50 per person cost for the meal, €1 goes towards a culinary training project for chefs in Bolivia. Read more about the project here.

Petting Zoo

We also have a delightful Petting Zoo on our park, where young children can participate in caring for the animals. We have chickens, pigs, sheep, a pony, and every spring, the young lambs happily around.

Fun facts:

  • We provide 80% of De Roek’s entire energy consumption with solar panels. On sunny days our consumption is lower than our production and we are a net supplier to the electricity grid.
  • We have a charging point for electric cars.
  • At the petting zoo, you may also meet one of our facilitators with participants. The Roek is also a Care Company (day care) five days a week.
  • Your pets are allowed in several bungalows; It’s also possible to stay in a pet-free accommodation.
  • For the animals at the petting zoo, we collect “over date” vegetables and bread from the local supermarket every day.
  • We feed organic kibble and when available organic hay and straw.
  • During your quiet vacation, also enjoy a drink on our terrace. On our terrace we serve coffee, tea or juice on Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings. This served with a cookie specially developed by our cook: a Hopke.
