“Looking for an unique place to stay? Check, where you will find all kinds of accommodation in nature, all around the world! We chose to go on our first staycation in Drenthe with our little nomad Atlas, and it was perfect.”

We had a picture perfect stay at this bed and breakfast, booked via They offer four cozy new-build rooms. Our luxury room had the comfort of a hotel room and is located on the first floor. There was a modern box-spring bed, a private bathroom with shower, TV, seats & desk, a kitchen corner with coffee and tea facilities and a minibar, and the best part… a free standing BATH overlooking the meadows! Breakfast is optional but seriously: go for it. It was soooo good! I really love the personal touch (they even put dog cookies for our dog!). You can enjoy this delicious breakfast in your room or outside on the terrace with a view over the meadows of Drenthe: hello sheep! It is also possible to book the sauna barrel for two hours.

This B&B is surrounded by the nature in Ruinen. The nature house is located in the outskirts of Ruinen and on the edge of the beautiful Dwingelderveld National Park. A must go: there are thousands of sheep grazing the heath every day. Because of grazing, the heather grasses less and this keeps the heath strong and healthy! The habitat of the sheep is the beautiful Dwingelderveld National Park, a wet forest and heathland area of almost 4000 hectares. On the edge of the Dwingelderveld, not far from the visitor center, you can visit the Ruinen sheep herd. Visitors are welcome every day to watch the sheep leave or arrive at the pen. The Boswachterij Ruinen and the Weerribben-Wieden National Park are beautiful areas to explore by bike or on foot too!
