Restinn Medemblik, Noord-Holland
Wijtze and Henny Mulder are the proud owners of the farm the Lelyhoeve. The farm was named after de famous Dutch Mennonite civil engineer and statesman, who designed the Zuiderzee Works, a major project changing the Zuiderzee into a lake, and turning huge areas into dry land. The farm was built in 1933 and is located in Wieringermeer. The end of the WWII marked an all-time low in the history of the Lelyhoeve: because the dikes of the Wieringermeer polder were blown up, the farm was irreparably damaged by the streaming water. After liberation, the farm and its agriculture were rebuilt and reused. Many years later, in 2000, family Mulder transformed the farm into a dairy farm and have now approximately 50 cows.
Visitors that seek peacefulness will enjoy this location, as the farm is situated next to a very silent alley without direct neighbours. Restinn Medemblik is a great starting point for a bike or hike tour! Visitors that have a like for bird watching could get pleasure from sitting on the terrace and enjoy the unobstructed view. Visitors have spotted swallows, harriers, redshanks, black-tailed godwit and lapwings.
The cosy city of Medemblik with its port is very near and offers plenty of entertainment, particularly in summer.
