Peace and Quiet. In our cosy Shepherd's hut you can enjoy the Ruinen forestry in the front- and the Dwingelderveld in the backyard is a 10minute bike ride away. Your accommodation has 2 comfortable beds, shower and compost toilet and a kitchenette with fridge. WiFi available. From your terrace you have a view over the fields where you can watch the sun go down while enjoying a glass of wine. Your Shepherd's cabin has a rural feel but is equipped with all
conveniences. It stands on the edge of the plot. In the morning you might spot a few roe deer, the squirrel in the bush next to you and the swallows soaring over the fields. The residence is built of sustainable materials and well insulated. The water used is purified through a reed filter and feeds the fruit trees just like the product from the compost toilet. You have two beds, which you can turn into sofas during the day, an attractive wood stove, but also electric stove. French doors give you access to a lovely terrace.

The Heerlijckheid Ruinen honors its name for a reason. Cycling and walking can be maintained here for days with heathland, forests and fens within walking distance. You can cycle extensively in the Dwingelerveld and for day trips, the Drenths Frisian forest and the heaths in Havelte are also easily accessible. Along the way you can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and lunch at various places. But you can also have lunch, brunch or dinner within walking distance. Drenthe is pre-eminently the province for cycling and walking shoes. In the woods opposite your residence there are various walking routes and beautiful cycling paths. But the Dwingelerveld is also ideal for a day of natural enjoyment. You can let your car rest on our site.If you like having a bicycle at your disposal during your stay, you can!
