Relaxing vacation during Carnival

A wondefull week away toghter with your family at de Roek. You can relax during your stay in one of our family cottages.

Escaping the party crowd and enjoying a peaceful holiday home during carnival? Retreat to a Finnish forest cabin at De Roek. Amidst the Veluwe nature, you’ll relish a wonderfully relaxed spring vacation.

Our visitors – those in search of tranquility, nature enthusiasts, and families with young children – are our best ambassadors. We wholeheartedly recommend their reviews on Zoover.

Hardly seen or heard that there were other holidaymakers around. Just my own spot among the trees. My only neighbors seemed to be the squirrels and the many different birds. Children and grandchildren were completely delighted by the calves, lambs, young goats and pigs, chicks, rabbits, and chickens at the petting zoo. In short, I didn’t have to worry about them at all. – Alides in a review on Zoover

Cottage overview

Small-scale holiday park in a tranquil environment during the Carnival holiday

The experience of being in a cottage far away from the inhabited world, a private terrace, a private garden… A small-scale park entails a personal spot and a tranquil environment. The heathland just a 5 minute walk away and for children, there’s a very charming petting zoo and a fun playground on the premises. At De Roek, you can enjoy a peaceful week away during the Carnival holiday.

Watch a beautiful nature video (less than 3 minutes) filmed from our photography hide.


In the vicinity, you can enjoy beautiful bike rides, plan a walk across the heath, or join the forest ranger for a guided walk through the woods on Sundays. Additionally, the Hoge Veluwe National Park is just a few kilometers away from De Roek. A wonderfully peaceful vacation cottage during carnival, set in a stunning environment: you’ll find it here on the Veluwe with us.

In de omgeving kunt u prachtige fietstochten maken, een wandeling over de heide uitstippelen of laat u op zondag door de boswachter meenemen door het bos. Ook Nationale Park de Hoge Veluwe ligt maar een paar kilometer bij De Roek vandaan. Een heerlijk rustig vakantiehuisje tijdens carnaval, in een prachtige omgeving: u vindt bij ons op de Veluwe.
