Our forrest house is quietly and freely situated in a protected landscape - the heart of the Northern Friesian Forests. The area is characterized by ancient tree walls that give the cozy atmosphere of a forest area. The flora and fauna is diverse and exuberant. You are awakened in the morning by a magnificent concert of the many species of songbirds that occur here. On the north side of the village Jistrum, on a 300 year old sandy path you will find this cottage. The sand path lies in an area with - especially around Jistrum - many more sandy roads suitable for walking, cycling and horse riding in Friesland. At a distance of five kilometers you will find the marina with boathouse on Lake Bergum. Nearby, on the lake, there is a public swimming area with sunbathing area, beach and jetty. In the area, the water sports and nature village Earnewâld is very worthwhile. You can take a cruise through a swamp area, the national park "De Alde Feanen". You will find, among other things, cormorants, storks, spoonbills and if you are lucky, otters. Beautiful historic cities are Dokkum and Leeuwarden. A day trip to one of the Wadden Islands is also recommended.
