as well as most major tourist attractions in the Netherlands is

The surrounding area:

- Diever is at the center of an abundance of historical sites and
attractions for adults and children of all ages. Diversity on your

- It is just a 10-minute walk to reach the forests of the Drents-
Friese Wold (6,100 hectares / 15,070 acres), one of the largest
National parks of the Netherlands, with its 32 marked walks & numerous
cycle paths. Also situated close by to National Park Dwingelderveld
(3,692 hectares / 9,120 acres) - the largest moorland on the European
Continent - with its 60 kms (37 miles) of walking trails & 40 kms (25
miles) of bicycle paths. Perfect for hiking, biking, riding,
birdwatching or just picnicking!

the ‘working‘ village of Orvelte.

- Visit the WWII transit camp at Westerbork - to where Anne Frank and
her family were brought.

- Take in the many museums (25, at the last count) that will provide
an interest to each member of your group.

- For teenagers, there are 18 fun parks and, for our younger guests,
enchanting ‘fairy tale’ parks nearby.

- While the city of Groningen ('shop till you drop') & the German
border are all less than an hour's drive, the provincial capital at
Assen is just a 25-minute drive away!

- Not forgetting a day-out to 'Wildlands' Attraction Park/zoo in Emmen, while for
those looking for more sporty activities, sailing, boat excursions &
fishing can be enjoyed at Giethoorn (the ‘Venice of the North’).

- Also, there is an 18-hole golf course available in Havelte (14km/9
miles away).

day out with some of the best beaches in the Netherlands with
excursions available to the seal colonies. They are around 1 ¼ hour’s
drive away, with an onward ferry crossing.

So, whether its picnicking in the forest, taking a dip in a forest
bathing pool or going by horseback along one of the many marked
trails, you won’t be disappointed by this areas rich heritage, its
welcoming, English-speaking people and its unending choice of
excursions and attractions.

Come and visit the real Netherlands!

Using the farmhouse as a base to explore the Netherlands:

- Are you looking for a central base in which to explore the

Apart from being able to explore the north and east of the country
with ease, ‘Under the Oaks’ is also very centrally located for
visiting both the south / south-west of the Netherlands, as well as
the west of the country. The travelling times for reaching these areas
are considerably shorter than travelling via the highway network in
the west of the country, as our roads and highways here in the north
and east are less congested.

Being situated in the south-west corner of Drenthe, Diever is placed
at the crossroads of three Dutch provinces - Drenthe, Overijssel and
Friesland - all uniquely different to one another. So when you are in
Drenthe, why not discover Friesland and Overijssel provinces as well -
the borders lie just 15 minutes away by car, with the highway just 11
kms (7 miles) away!

Driving times from Diever to other parts of the Netherlands?

- it’s less than 2 hours from Diever to the southern city of Eindhoven
(the Belgian border is just south of there).

A visit to Amsterdam while staying in Diever?

- many of our guests drive the 45 minutes to the outskirts of Almere
(Almere Buiten), and then take the short train journey from there into
Amsterdam city. It’s much easier to park your car outside the city and
use the fast and efficient public transport from there!

Wishing to explore Rotterdam and the Hague in the south-west of the
country as well?

- these cities are also just 90-120 minutes away. Again, travelling
times from our region to these cities is faster than from many other
parts of the country, as the highway network via Zwolle to Utrecht has
lighter traffic.

We want you to have a wonderful and memorable holiday!

It is our pleasure to be of assistance to you during your stay and our
priority to make sure that you will have a pleasant time at the
holiday farmhouse. We are happy to offer any help on preparing your
