The detached holiday home is in a farmhouse yard and is suitable for four people. The holiday home has been built with sustainable materials and is located in Markelo, in the Hof van Twente. The dining table in the kitchen runs on tracks that enable it to be moved outside, where you can have a quiet breakfast while enjoying the singing of birds. In springtime the fruit trees are in bloom and in autumn you can pick as many apples and pears as you like. There are two hedgerows around the garden which include white flowering hawthorn plants. Every year, swallows breed in the barn opposite the house. Hares and roe deer can sometimes be seen from the yard. The garden has a narrow rail track that was used until 1964 for transporting loam from the Markelo quarry to the brick factory in Rijssen (where the "loam railway museum" is now). You can set up several terraces around the house. Behind the holiday home is a covered terrace. The kitchen, walk-in shower and toilet are on the ground floor. The living room is deeply recessed to allow you to look out from your couch and see the birds foraging around. On the first floor you'll find two bedrooms. One is a spacious bedroom with box-spring twin beds set up as a double. There are two single beds in the second bedroom. The area features numerous cycling and walking routes. You'll find four restaurants within 3 km of cycling. Towns with shops, museums and restaurants such as Borculo (fire and storm disaster museum, mineral museum), Diepenheim (four castles), Markelo (Markelose mountain, swimming pool) and Lochem (observatory) are approximately 10 km away by bike. The home owners themselves love to cycle along the winding bike path on the Twentekanaal Dyke to Lochem. You cycle through forest for the entire length (and never against wind). Larger cities such as Deventer, Zutphen and Hengelo are within a radius of 25 km. The towns of Rijssen and Holten, with the famous Holterberg diorama (Sallandse Heuvelrug National Park), also lie within this radius.
