Bed and Breakfast Nieuwleusen with kids: a review!
We had never booked a Bed and Breakfast here in the Netherlands and were curious about our experiences with this type of accommodation. Bed and Breakfast Nieuwleusen instantly appealed to us online from the pictures and during our next city trip to Zwolle, we booked this B&B right away. Based on our overnight stay at this B&B during the Christmas vacations, we write this comprehensive review.
Table of contents
The B&B is located in the town of Nieuwleusen, which was the perfect location for us. For example, the B&B is right in between all kinds of activities that are fun for families with kids.
For example, the B&B is located exactly between the following cities and amusement parks:
- Amusement park Slagharen (19 minutes away by car)
- Adventure park Hellendoorn (35 minutes)
- Dinoland Zwolle (14 minutes)
- Zwolle center (12 minutes)
- Giethoorn (30 minutes)
- Wildlands Emmen (40 minutes)
Parking the car was, of course, free and we were shown around by the friendly owner of the B&B upon arrival. We always thought of a B&B as a kind of staying with someone, but it didn’t feel that way to us at all. The apartment is a separate building from the house, giving you completely your own cottage. Therefore, our first impression was immediately very good.
The apartment was much more spacious than we had thought in advance. For example, it has two bedrooms, so our daughter had her own bedroom. We ourselves always like this very much and is definitely something we always look at when booking accommodation. In total, it can sleep a family of six. In fact, there are a double bed, twin beds and a bunk bed in the apartment. Furthermore, there is also a separate bathroom and a living/dining room, giving you all the space you need to have fun with your family in the apartment even when the weather is less.
Furthermore, there is a good WIFI connection, there is a TV and there is the possibility of having a cup of coffee or tea in the apartment. There is also a refrigerator in the apartment, allowing you to keep your own drinks cool. With all the amenities in the apartment and the space, we really had a homey feeling.
Surrounding the apartment is a very large garden with also a large trampoline, a slide and an area with benches under a canopy where you can sit, which ensures that in the summer you can have a great time here with your family outside in the garden and have a drink.
What we did not know beforehand when we booked it was that in the garden there is also a cottage with a kind of private pub for guests. We found this really super fun and would have loved to spend a few more hours here (unfortunately, of course, at some point our daughter had to go to bed). We played a game here, had great drinks and our daughter also sang along with quite a few songs to our music that we could play through the Bluetooth speakers.
The refrigerator behind the bar has a variety of beers and other drinks, and the board lists the prices of the drinks. You can have a drink here and you can just leave the money for the drink behind the bar afterwards. What we found another nice detail about the bar are the Tilburg elements (we are from this region ourselves) that we did not expect in a bar near Zwolle.
Food and drink in the B&B
Of course, we were served breakfast in the morning at this Bed and Breakfast and it was really delicious! As you can also see in the photo below, the full breakfast consisted of various breads, eggs, toppings, sweets, freshly made egg salad (delicious!), fruits, yogurt, cereals and orange juice.
We were served this breakfast at the dining table in our own apartment. We thought this was a real treat and went out with a well-filled belly!
Because there is a refrigerator in the apartment, you can also bring your own drinks to have in the evening. For lunch and dinner you can go to the village where there are a number of eateries or you have to drive to Zwolle for a wide selection of dining options.
We really had a pleasant time with the family at this B&B. Due to the space and facilities of the B&B, you can also easily entertain yourself around the apartment here (even in bad weather). Playing a game in the apartment, watching TV, playing on the trampoline in the garden or singing a song with your kids in your own private pub ensure that you won’t be bored here. Add to that the location of the B&B and the delicious breakfast, which made us really recommend this B&B!
