Surrounded by nature in a beautiful location, this castle is open to guests on a bed-and-breakfast basis. Or if you have a special event in mind, you can reserve the entire estate.
Interiors are gorgeous—especially the Great Hall, lounges, and stately dining room with its balcony. There is even a neo-Gothic chapel on site.
Guest rooms can be found in the outbuildings—comprised of the 17th-century coach house and gardener’s house—or inside the castle. The outbuilding rooms are light and airy, with a country house decor and wood floors. Two of the rooms in the gardener’s house have a private terrace with views of the castle. Bathrooms are modern.
The round tower rooms inside the castle are really special. Thick walls are of brick with alcoves set under archways and occasional antique pieces. You reach these rooms via an old spiral staircase. Views of the surrounding green countryside and the castle moat from the tower are fantastic.
Guest rooms do not have TVs, which, depending on your point of view, add to the property’s serenity.
Since there is no restaurant on the premises, you can easily dine in nearby Driebergen. A delicious breakfast is served in the Gardener’s house, a sunny terrace, or in your own room.
Beautiful gardens and parkland
