De Overleekerhoeve, Monnickendam
De Overleekerhoeve is a long-house farm which was completely rebuilt in authentic style in 2006. A long-house farm is a farm with a head, a body and a tail. In former times the head was the house, the body the stables and the tail the hayloft. The farmhouse provides accommodation for a maximum of 26 people. For groups, the entire farm is at your disposal from head to tail.
The property consists of one six-person apartment and 5 four-person rooms, including one wheelchair-friendly room. You also have a cosy farmhouse sitting-room with an open-plan kitchen, where the whole group can sit together in comfort. Through a glass wall you can look into the farm sheds, where you can watch life on the farm in all its glory (you have a direct view of the cows and calves).
Each room has its own fully-fitted bathroom with shower and toilet. Two of the rooms also have whirlpools. In the farmhouse sitting-room there is a large, old-style oak kitchen, where groups can prepare wonderful meals. The kitchen has everything you need, including a six-ring gas burner, large electric oven, dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator and kitchen utensils.
You and your group can make the most of life outdoors in the farmhouse garden, with its wealth of flowers. The farmhouse garden with its lawn is fully at the disposal of groups, which means your privacy is guaranteed. The landing stage at the water’s edge is another great place to spend some time. The farmer’s wife would be happy to give you a tour of the farm and tell you about farming life during your stay.
