Nynke's Pleats gets a new destination. The former restaurant is being thoroughly renovated, restored and made sustainable. The surrounding yard will be developed into a public resting place and the terp meadow will be restored. From mid-2023, the barn can be used as a comfortable guest house for up to 20 people and the large space in the barn will be used for cultural activities and special gatherings. Het Voorhuis can be rented since March 2023. Do you want to stay informed of all developments? Then sign up for our newsletter.
