"Our overnight stay at De Oude Huize Yard was excellent in every way. Total comfort - complete with cozy fire for a chilly night. The breakfast was delicious and not the usual fare served elsewhere. Hennie and Sandra were gracious hosts and so very interesting. A true delight we hope to repeat on one of our next travels."
