Behind our B&B you can find a forest that connects you to the Rotte, the river where the city of Rotterdam originated. This recreational area called ‘The Rottemeren’ is ideal for cycling, walking, rowing, skating, horse-riding and outdoor activities like climbing and mountain biking. Take a look at the website of Outdoor Valley. In this area you can also find some well maintained, typically Dutch windmills. Also close by is a spa, Art centre Artihove and a museum for old tractors.
There are two riding-schools nearby if you like horse-riding. There is also a car-rental in case you need a car for a day. Just a five-minute-walk. They are happy to provide you with a car.
