Imagine your prince and princess in the straw castle. "You’re invited by the Royal Highness". The spacious fairytale barn features draperies, heavy chandeliers, soft cowhides on the floor, castle seats and much more. You sleep on a large bed, made up with a thick pack of straw. In addition, a comfortable mattress topper. A soft down comforter and beautiful bed linen give a feeling of supreme luxury. The Strokasteel has a spacious bathroom with luxury shower, toilet and sink.
In the morning we like to serve a rich breakfast in the Strokasteel. This can be booked. When the weather is nice, you can also eat outside in the orchard or on our beautiful terrace.
The Straw castle offers space for two to a maximum of six people. If you want to come and sleep with your family in the Strawcastle, then you are 'warned' - the children do not want to leave. The straw, the atmosphere, the space, everything invites you to play and fantasize about life in a real castle. Right next to the Straw Castle is the large room with table tennis table, swing, drum set. Outside and in the Barn & Beach (the indoor beach) there is a lot to do for children.
In combination with the hayloft and the straw igloos, larger groups can also use the Straw Hotel. Ask for the possibilities.
Do you dare to brave the cold when it is cold and inclement weather outside? One thing is certain: those who are not put off by a little cold experience a special winter adventure. The straw castle has no central heating (a real castle does not have that of course); a fireplace - with the many straws - is of course not a good idea. In the Stroawcastle, the area around the dining table is heated with radiant heaters. The rest of the castle is nice and fresh.
The bathroom does have heating. The beds have an electric blanket. With fleece blankets, warm hugs in bed, woolen night hats, we ensure that you can still be nice and warm. And if you still feel cold, then you can simply cuddle up in bed. A bed of straw always provides warmth, even when it is cold.
Thanks for the great experience . We slept like a prince and princess in the wonderful straw – super cozy ! We like to come back sometime in the summer weather . Greetings and Niels Rowenna
It was a very fun and unique experience. The quiet surroundings , the bright sky certainly something magical. Very hospitable people here, nice breakfast in a cozy environment between all the straw. Even when it’s freezing outside , it ‘s in here nice and warm by a small heater. The Wadden are definitely worth discovering , as well as the beautiful surroundings , with its vast meadows and big farms. Hopefully till next time . Sören and Laura from the “small” Belgium
Easter 2015 Dear Hans and Will, we have enjoyed in your beautiful straw castle! After a nice welcome and a nice ‘ inboeringscursus ‘ at farmer Kees we crawled our nice bed. even though it was we slept wonderfully -5 degrees outside . In the morning we were like smoke -breathing dragons awake! Having been a delicious breakfast to Pieterburen and the mudflats . But first we have cycled a round at the Elliptigo ‘s , what does that tasty. After a wonderful night we sit down to breakfast , socializing with female Fransel . The Igloos places and you invite another visit , there are still so much to do fun things here . And the girls still want to play games again , drumming and sit on the swing . Thank you very much for your hospitality and maybe see you soon! Jack , Annie, Berit , Ylva , Jytte
Dear Hans and Will, the weekend is already over . We have four of us enjoyed our time in the straw castle. Breakfast was fantastic and the setting beautiful. Yesterday we did the inboeringscursus at Egbert and Ciska on farm Knight . That was an experience never to be forgotten . We felt honored to be seeing the first lambs born triplets of the season. it was a great company with foolish kind and hospitable people. The Groningen weekend was a success. Bye! Regards, John, Ellen , Rose and Puck .
