These beautiful forest houses are for rent on Het Lorkenbos, situated in beautiful green surroundings. Our cottage is exactly on the edge of National Park ‘De Hoge Veluwe‘. You don’t have the idea that you are on a holiday park (because I don’t like that at all) and there is a great atmosphere.
The best thing of this place? The Veluwe is right on the corner. We discover large sand drifts a few steps from our home away from home and I fall in love with this piece of natural beauty. My parents-in-law and their two dogs join us for the weekend and we enjoy a wonderful evening BBQ, wine and good conversations on the terrace. The birds are chirping out and I try to hold on to this lovely moment. The Veluwe is one of the most beautiful and natural spots of Netherlands. And I happen to live here. Lucky me.
It’s hot. We drive from forests to thrift shops and terraces. Hand in hand we enjoy a beautiful walk through the woods, get lost (Netherlands is not that small at all, actually) and follow the sun back to our cottage. As night falls we decide to walk to the sand drifts again. The best idea ever. The sun slowly sets and everything turns orange. The dogs run around like happy kids. They enjoy this moment. Just like I am. Clouds seem to explode from the setting sun and I feel intensely happy. Beautiful places can be found just around the corner, just open your eyes.
