    Fishing weekend Show original

    Good evening Mirjam and Iwan. We had a wonderful weekend at The Waterhouse. The smooth reception by Iwan and the flexibility with which we were able to moor our Barkas was very pleasant. Then you can sit down and eat a herring. Very nice. Gr. Henk's mates.

    Space, rest & deer Show original

    We had a fantastic midweek on this super spacious houseboat! Fully equipped, good beds, top view. Located in a pleasant marina with ferry to "the other side". And almost every day a few deer to graze in front of the door :) Also had a lot of fun from the motor boat, to enjoy the area or to get groceries in Ter Herne. We would love to come back!
