Guests' comments-

We have been delighted with The Joffers' House. It is a beautiful house which has a serene and relaxing ambiance, set in a lovely village which has been very welcoming. We have enjoyed our time in the area visiting Arnhem, Nijmegen, Maastricht and lots of local towns. One of the highlights of the week has been visiting 'De Hoge Veluwe' and taking the free bikes around the cycle tracks. What an amazing scenery! Sorry to have to leave!

This is a wonderful house and the host, Mieke is lovely. Inside it is welcoming and friendly, there is everything you could want in terms of furnishings and equipment. We went to Bobbyjaanland and Phantasialand- all within 90 minutes travel. Horst and Venray are nice towns with good shopping. Kasteeltuinen Arcen is lovely and relaxing. We also went to Duisberg Zoo- a fantastic find. We stayed with our children and we all loved it. The Joffers' House and its surroundings; a truely unique find!
