The last minute nature house you book in Drenthe will be surrounded by all the beautiful flora that this country has to offer. Whether it’s spring, autumn, summer, or winter, every season you will get to see new types of vegetation. There will be lakes and ponds right outside your house or even evergreen bushes and trees. You may wake up to beautiful scenes of the Dutch tulips. The country is famous for its flowers. Did you know that even though the tulips are considered a Dutch symbol now, the gentle and vividly colored tulips were imported from the Ottoman Empire (nowadays’ Turkey) in the 16th century? In the past, the flower bulbs were used as money until the market collapsed. This moment in Dutch history is also known as Tulip Mania. While you cycle around or take a hike you may spot different types of trees like acacia, alder, ash, birch, catalpa, Caucasian wingnut, or even cherry! The most common trees that grow in Drenthe are oak, elm, pine, linden, and beech. Flowers such as daisies, buttercups, and the purple heather that blooms on the heaths in September can be discovered while hiking in the Dutch long-distance trails, such as E2, E8, E9 through Rotterdam, and E11 from The Hague.


In Drenthe, mammals such as the red deer, wild pigs, foxes, badgers, fallow deer, mouflons, rabbits, hedgehogs, and bats can be found. In total, 541 bird species have been registered. This sounds exciting for bird-watchers, right? The number composes the ducks and most duck-like waterfowl, such as geese and swans. These birds are adapted to an aquatic existence with webbed feet, flattened bills, and feathers that are excellent at shedding water due to an oily coating. You will be able to see a number of animals while visiting the Dutch national parks or while hiking or cycling across the country. If you are a passionate bird-watcher or animal lover, then what do you think about renting a tiny house, cottage, or any other last minute accommodation that is available in the middle of Drenthe’s nature?
