A break in Holland’s ‘Green Heart’ offers an enchanting holiday location that will meet all of your expectations whilst delivering more than a few wonderful surprises.
A gorgeous green landscape filled with rural pastures, picturesque villages, windmills and lakes awaits. Take a cycle tour of the low lying pathways and you can hear meadow birds call and spot iconic Dutch cattle dotted amongst the gorgeous open spaces. But there’s much more to the region than just beautiful quiet places. The Green Heart is a perfect location for exploring Holland’s heritage too. There’s ‘yellow gold’ galore amongst Gouda, Woerden and Bodegraven, and being in the region allows you an amazing choice of cheese amongst the many markets and farm shops.
The city of Leerdam is famed for its glassworks. Visit and enjoy an unrivalled audience with all kinds of beautiful and ornate creations at art galleries, the National Glass Museum and the Glass Centre.
Likewise, Schoonhoven is also known as ‘Silver City’ for its precious metals. Silver and gold smiths have been working there since the 17th Century, and there are plenty of places to admire their work amongst the boutiques and museums.
It may sound exhausting, but Holland’s Green Heart can be enjoyed in any way you choose. There are all kinds of ways to have an amazing holiday, from soaking up the tranquil ambience to enjoying an active exploration of its cycle and waterways. Landal De Reeuwijkse Plassen is not only perfectly placed for an enjoyable break in the Green Heart, but it also offers plenty of its own activities too.
There’s an indoor swimming pool, play island, plus recreational beach and lake (accessible from outside of your accommodation). You can fish, surf and sail, or kick back in the restaurant or ice cream parlour for some much-needed refuelling. With new brand new accommodation offering comfort for between 2 to 20, an amazing escape awaits in the Green Heart of the Netherlands.
