The front house 'Voorhuis'

Enjoy the beautiful view and the peace and space of the area, from the authentic and at the same time very comfortable Voorhuis. After a long restoration and renovation, it is completely finished!

The Voorhuis is the place where everything came together, where people lived, where it was warm and where people slept. And that is finally possible again: the old structure was brought back during the restoration in 2022 and the kitchen diner has been restored to its former glory. The front room with the old Makkumer tiles and the box bed wall have also been restored. From 2023 it will be possible to sleep with a maximum of 5 people in the Voorhuis and enjoy this special place with a view of the 13th-century church and the meadows. The outside area is still being worked on, but it is already wonderful to relax in the orchard and the flower meadow.

Authentic kitchen diner

As was the case in the past, the kitchen is the heart of the Voorhuis. With a beautiful cast iron stove (also with induction), Frisian tiles and large south-facing windows, it exudes comfort and coziness in both summer and winter. And of course there is just a dishwasher...

Snug front room

All walls of the front room are covered with Frisian tiles. The box bed wall is painted in authentic red and gives the whole a warm atmosphere. An eco-burning Jøtul wood stove makes it the perfect place for a colder evening. Here is also a television (via chromecast) and an antique desk with a view over the meadows.


Despite its authentic character, the Front House of Nynke's Pleats is technically very modern and, like the rest of the farm, it is sustainably heated (heat pumps) and ventilated (WTW installations). Local parties were involved in the restoration of the monument and sustainable materials from the area were used as much as possible, such as the reed that comes from the Makkumersúdwaard.

Two bedrooms and a real box bed

The bedrooms on the first floor each have a brand new box spring bed of 160x210. The cozy box bed in the front room has been adapted to this time and has a mattress of 90x200 cm. There is a beautiful new bathroom with a walk-in shower and toilet on the first floor.

Independent house with its own entrance

The Voorhuis has its own entrance and access to the large shared garden on the south. Later in 2023 it will also be possible to rent the Voorhuis in combination with the Barn (for a maximum of 20 people).

Parking and electric charging

Nynke's Pleats has a very spacious private car park with a charging point for electric cars. At the moment, work is still being done on the parking lot, including a rest area for cyclists and walkers. We expect that visitors will not be inconvenienced by this, the view is mainly on the other side of the farm.

"Beautiful! Views all around. Close to a nature reserve with bird lookout with spectacular views of the IJsselmeer. A very nice house, far from being furnished as a holiday home, equipped with every luxury, beautiful art and antiques, as if you are staying in a private house, where you do not want to leave."
