Along the Pieter Christiaan canal and a short distance from Lemmer is this 150 year old, monumental, Frisian farmhouse. Built as one of the first farms after the reclamation of the peat polder. Feather Down Hoeve Waterschap is still a bustling center of activity.At the farm you will find a "children -zoo": sheep, rabbits, cuddle -chicken (get up early to get some fresh eggs) and goats roam freely in the enclosure. There are 3 goats which were bottle fed and are therefore very friendly and love to be taken for a walk. Children will spend ages in the zoo. Another favourite activity for children is swimming in the nearby river Tjonger or in the Tjeukermeer (meer=lake). The village Echtenerbrug is a great place to go for a drink and watch the boats going past.As part of the Feather Down concept, there is no electricity or WiFi in the cosy accommodations. Candles and oil lamps provide a warm light and a rustic wood stove is available for cooking. Each accommodation has quality bedding, an equipped kitchen, a toilet, a dining area and a barbecue. Dogs are allowed in this location.
