We have a great shopping street (with Saturday market) just a 10 minute walk away, the tram stop with direct trams to Delft, the beach and The Hague are also 10 minutes by foot. Or, can can choose to cycle everywhere using our bikes, as everything is within cycling distance!
There are several parks in our neighbourhood, with equipment for small children and also a football area for older children. We will mark these on a map for you so they are easy to find. You will also find a lovely petting farm, which is run by adults with a learning disability, with a nice play area. If the weather isn't great you can go to the indoor play area 'monkey town' for children from 0-12 years. All of these options are within a 10 minute cycle ride away.
It`s a 10 minute cycle to The Hague central station where you can park your bike in the bike garage and get trains to all the major cities - Amsterdam, Utrecht (well worth a visit!), Leiden (where the pilgrims stopped en route to america), Rotterdam, Haarlem and many more wonderful places to discover in this small country!
The Hague has a lovely stretch of beach, but also a vibrant city centre with a mix of old buildings and new. The Dutch parliament is situated in The Hague and is a beautiful old building which you can walk through. There are also plenty of shops if you like to spend a day shopping. There are restaurants a plenty and many lovely independent cafes where you can grab a coffee or drink a beer in the afternoon. If you want to go to the cinema The Hague has a few different options and most films are in English (Dutch subtitles).
If you enjoy museums then the Mauritshuis can not be missed. It displays many of the famous Dutch artists paintings from the Golden Era and of course the famous `Girl with the Pearl Earring` is housed there. There is plenty to do and see!
We would love to welcome you in our home and help you to discover and enjoy this country!
We don't own a car because it's so easy to get around by bike and public transport. Our bikes have bags on them so you can put shopping in them or use them to carry your towels/beach things. The tram stop is a 750 metres from our house, a 10 minute walk. There is a bus stop 150 metres from our house. Voorburg Centraal (Voorburg railway station) is 1.3km away, about a 15 minute walk.
Den Haag centraal train station is 3km from our home, which you can cycle in 10 minutes.
If you come by car then you can park on our street and we will provide you with a 'guest permit' to allow you to park there at any time.
