An oasis of tranquility for nature lovers
Rikkerda is a private country estate, strategically located between the Lauwersmeer lake, the Drents Friese forests, National Park De Alde Faenen and the Wadden region. Nestled between these areas of outstanding natural beauty, it is nevertheless a less than 30 minute drive to the bustling city of Groningen, with its museums, pubs, award-winning architecture and lively music scene.
The thatched, listed “kop-hals-rompboerderij” (literally translated as head-neck-trunk shaped farm) has a rich history. The farmhouse and barns are surrounded by approximately 9 hectares of nature reserve; vast fields rich in herbs and fauna interspersed with wooded banks, pools and ditches.
In summer, you can hear little else but the rustling of the wind through the leaves of the ancient trees as background for a choir of songbirds. In the winter, you can retreat here for a breath of crisp, fresh air, enjoying the vastness and stillness of the landscape.
We would be delighted to share our little paradise with you. Whether you come to relax completely, or to finally be able to work in peace, alone or with loved ones; Rikkerda welcomes you.
