THE GREAT BARN

SHARE

This lavish country estate flawlessly blends modern day amenities within an authentic wooden exterior. The Great Barn is a prize of The Netherlands and offers a truly unique stay inside it’s loft style sleeping chambers. Hints of charm and elegance are found in every detail throughout the newly renovated building which add to the majestic nature of the establishment. Nestled amidst an orchard just 17km outside of Amsterdam city centre, this authentic property is a premium escape in rural Holland.    

The main floor is an ode to simpler times, encompassing the vintage ambiance of European splendour. An antique French fireplace sets the mood beautifully and provides a centrepiece for surrounding conversation or solitude. For those who lack the talents to play the 18th century grand piano in the corner, there’s a full surround sound system, with the ability to connect an iPod or laptop. Whatever the occasion, whether it be a romantic getaway or for self revitalization, this is the perfect setting for a glass of wine and a crackling fire.

The sleeping chambers is accessed by a rod iron spiral staircase to the second floor and is as much a piece of art as it is practical. Upstairs you can view the main floor from a balcony which stretches the width of the barn and also offers views of the gardens and meadows outside. Here you will find your silk coated king size bed waiting alongside an impressive French claw foot bathtub. Truly a master suite fit for royalty.

The main floor kitchen grants guests access to all self catering amenities, including modern appliances, cutlery, dishes and an authentic wood-fire pizza oven. The private bathroom also features a very large and inviting shower (with water pressure Kramer would die for) which is the perfect way to start (or end) your day. Additional features of the Great Barn include heated floor tiles, an outdoor terrace and hot tub overlooking the surrounding property. Personally prepared breakfasts and dinners can also be arranged upon request, along with group gatherings and events with seating up to 12 people.

The comfort and bliss found at the Great Barn is something magical, a fairy tale destination with the modern traveller in mind. A rare and unusual accommodation that provides a sophisticated and charming setting for exploring the senses and reconnecting with life. Similar to Amsterdam as a whole, The Great Barn offers more then meets the eye…

    This place looks amazing. I have always wanted to visit Amsterdam, is the barn easily accessible to the city centre? Is public transit available?

    • nadaCliche

      Hey Rob, yup it is indeed! Takes about a half hour to get there, the 120 bus stops right in front of the barn and takes you to Bijlmer Arena where you can connect to the metro to city centre. Thanks for checking out the article.
