B&B Overijssel

Overijssel translated to “across the IJssel” is a Dutch province famous for lakes, rivers and bike routes. If you love nature, you will like Overijssel. Imagine waking up to a good breakfast and ready to explore the place. A b&b house in Overijssel will do just that. The relaxing experience will be one similar to the hospitality of a hotel. You can stay overnight but also enjoy a nice ready made breakfast in the morning and start exploring right after!

Explore the beautiful nature of Overijssel

The nature in this province is extremely diverse and therefore our holiday homes in Overijssel are certainly suitable for a short or long holiday in their own country. The landscape of the province is very diverse; you will find small-scale scenic landscapes and forest areas, but also river landscapes, estates and polders. A versatile landscape! Every few kilometres you will come across new landscapes and other nature while walking, canoeing, cycling or driving a car, which means that you will not get bored easily here.

Overijssel has several nature reserves. Around the various visitor centres in these nature reserves, many mapped out routes start, both for riders and cyclists, fanatical hikers or canoe lovers. The forester will be happy to accompany you, so that he can inform you about the natural phenomena, the flora and the fauna that you will encounter along the way. National Park De Sallandse Heuvelrug and National Park Weerribben-Wieden are by far the most famous nature reserves in the province. On the Salland Ridge you can wander over rolling heathlands and through vast forests. In addition to the many insects, this area is also home to the last group of grouse in the Netherlands at the moment. Special!

Get to know Twente

Twente is probably the most famous region of Overijssel. The region is located in the far southeast of the province and is full of charming towns and villages. To the east and north of Twente is neighbouring Germany. A holiday home in Overijssel is therefore not only the perfect place to discover the primeval Dutch nature, but also to see the nature of our eastern neighbours!

The border region with Germany has beautiful green nature, cultural highlights and charming towns and villages. Visit Bad Bentheim with its famous castle, from where you have a beautiful view over the wooded surroundings of the village and where you can walk and cycle without having to worry about large differences in altitude. Just north of Bad Bentheim is Nordhorn. In this city you can visit the zoo or go for a walk through the green city park, but also the shopping enthusiasts can indulge themselves there. Characteristic for the city of Nordhorn is the river Vecht, which makes its way through the city. To the east of Nordhorn lies the enormous forest and heathland area of Engdener Wüste/Heseper Moor.

Canoeing through National Park Weerribben-Wieden

The water-rich Weerribben-Wieden National Park is located in the Kop van Overijssel. It is considered to be the largest lowland swamp in north-western Europe and was created centuries ago by peat extraction in this area. In the national park the reed and the many waterways characterize the landscape. Polders, ditches, lakes, reed beds and swamp forests, everything can be found here. Because water and land alternate here, the area is the habitat of thousands of plant and animal species. An example of this is the bright orange butterfly. Because of the large amount of water, a canoe or small boat is the best and most fun way to explore the National Park on your own. For lovers, there are even real canoe routes! Along the way you will spot special birds and perhaps even one of the otters, which have been successfully reintroduced here since 2002.

Part of the Weerribben-Wieden National Park is the "Venice of the North": Giethoorn. Along the tree-lined village moat of this picturesque town you can walk over narrow bridges and past impressive farms. Cars cannot reach the water-rich centre of Giethoorn, so everything happens here by boat or by leg wagon. The various large and small lakes around Giethoorn form the backdrop for all kinds of water sports activities. Would you rather take it easy? Rent a boat and enjoy the soothing effect of the water that surrounds you with the sun on your face. Moor at one of the uninhabited islands and have a picnic. A nice alternative for lunch in the tourist village centre of Giethoorn!

Rent a charming b&b accommodation

Every b&b is unique and has its own charm. Each of them has its own characteristics that make the overnight stay unique. You can rent a luxury b&b in Overijssel with themed rooms, a wellness area, or decorated with designer furniture. You can choose to stay during your b&b holidays in treehouses, farmhouses, tents, cabins, former mills, school buildings, an old factory, or houseboats. So, this is an excellent opportunity to take a peek inside a mysterious monastery or castle that you've always wanted to visit. A stay in a bed and breakfast combines the facilities of a hotel with the hospitality of the host and/or hostess on site.

This accommodation is with breakfast included, which means that you will have a great start of the day. Plan a romantic getaway for the two of you in one of our b&b houses. Some of them even have a pool. For some people, the vacation is just not complete when the pet is not allowed to come along ... if that's you, worry no more! Some of the b&b’s will allow you to bring your pets along. With Nature.house your holiday will be complete by all of your loved ones. Still interested? Scroll up and book now
