Stay Overnight in a Converted Mill… in Friesland.

Converted Millr

This is a unique and beautiful place to stay. The mill itself is beautiful – even better than the pictures. The surroundings are picturesque, the interior warm, welcoming and tastefully decorated. The ‘welcome’ beers were a nice touch. ✨

We wouldn’t want to miss out the important bits by failing to tell you that this mill is in Tietjerk, The Netherlands. This alternative break to the bustling streets of Amsterdam is out in the country, back to nature, and as interesting as sleeping in a 120-year-old mill should be. The Mill is named De Swarte Prinsch and it is an authentic polder mill in a nature reserve. We didn’t even know what Polder was. We had to look it up.

About the Mill

The Old Mill is in the countryside but approximate to the beach. There is a nearby golf course and a mini golf course. There is a swimming pool and an animal park, as well as shopping in Leeuwarden, about fifteen minutes away. You are inside a National Park in this location, with access to beach, sea, river, and field. The country feel is only made better with the country views. It’s a very cool place to unwind, relax, and not be off-grid even although you feel like you are.

A Bit About Airbnb

Airbnb are a huge name in multinational travel. They operate all over the world, with their western market particularly strong. Airbnb uses an innovative model that allows you to stay in someone’s house, rather than in a hotel or other accommodations. Sometimes the owner rents out a room and sometimes you have the whole property to yourself. No matter what happens, though, you stay with a local person who has in-depth knowledge of the local area.

Airbnb hosts work hard to earn 5 star reviews. This makes for an excellent experience, most of the time. Traveling with them means your local guide can pass on information to help you make the most of your trip. They can leave you the best takeaway menus from the area, gift you literature on local attractions, and even put together welcome packs for you.

Airbnb began in 2007 when two hosts in San Francisco rented out their properties. Since then, they have gone from strength to strength to become a worldwide guest hosting firm. Users can sign up to rent out space in their own homes or sign up as guests. A review process helps keep everyone aligned.
