…kom daar maar eens om!

We hebben het hier naar ons zin gehad in de Padstal: de roeiers, de vogels in de tuin, de hartelijke ontvangst!

Heerlijke slaapzolders, lekker matras en kussens. Kom daar maar eens om. Tot later,

dank voor het heerlijk verblijf in jullie paradijsje, niet ver van het centrum van Leiden. We hebben genoten

van het fantastische ontbijt, de rust, de fietstochten en de prachtige omgeving!

Dit huisje overtrof mijn toch al hoog gespannen verwachtingen. Ik kwam hier om te reflecteren en inderdaad, daar is deze plek uitermate geschikt voor gebleken. (…) Vanmorgen zag ik weer de winterkoningen en de zwartkop reiger en laatst vloog er een groep van 25 staartmezen langs, om in de boom bij de sloot te landen. Dit is een belangrijke stepping stone voor alles wat hier leeft.

Tulips in our garden

Our children enjoyed watching and feeding the rabbits, rooster and hens. Willemijn and Niels were very nice hosts and everything was perfectly set. There are a few tulips planted right next and they look so beautiful. We felt at home completely. Thanks again.

Eine Idylle

Es fiel uns schwer, diese Idylle wieder zu verlassen.

Greetings from South Africa!

The friendly hospitality and willingness to assist makes this the best place to stay in Leiden. The Padstal is good and clean and fresh with lots of space.

Rowing teams silently going by

The house is on a beautiful canal with rowing teams silently going by and great bike trails. The best thing I can say, however, was the support and understanding when my daughter became ill during our stay. (..) The house and area are wonderful. Even better, was knowing such nice people.

Splendid view

The location at 7-8 minutes by bike from the city was ideal for us, the barn faces a wide canal and the view is splendid. We felt very much at home and enjoyed our sunday breakfast siting outside, the sun shining Do not hesitate!

House, hosts & parking 🙂

The house is excellent. Everything is there, we were welcomed with some delicious stuff in the fridge. The hosts were great, giving you privacy but super responsive for anything needed. Parking is excellent. Be sure to bring your toothbrush and enjoy this gem on “de Vliet”!!!”

Gestaltungslust und Liebe

Das Eco-Stable ist Teil eines von Willemijn und Niels mit enormer Gestaltungslust und Liebe für charmante Details hergerichtetes Bauernanwesen aus dem 17. Jahrhundert. Die Lage, direkt an einer romantischen Wasserstraße gelegen, ist ebenso außergewöhnlich und für einen Urlaub in Leiden und Umgebung ideal.

Touring the country by bike

We were touring the country by bike and had biked from Delft and then used the barn as a home base to see the tulip fields. It was perfect! We biked into Leiden each day for food and explored the Wednesday market to shop for our picnic. Thank you again!

Bike trails through meadows & copses

The place is right on a net of wonderful bike trails through meadows and small copses. They welcomed us with some tasty treats and were always available if we had questions. Highly recommended.

Kids loved their bedstead

A stylishly furnished house in an ideal location by the canal.

We liked the rabbits and chickens, the children liked the original place to sleep.
