Zathe De Spieker – Itens
Our “head-neck-body” farmhouse Zathe De Spieker is situated on a country road. The stables of this farm have been completely rebuilt to form two luxurious, spacious and stylishly furnished guest rooms with a separate entrance and each with its own shower/toilet and satellite TV.
In the morning you will be served in the breakfast room – with the French windows open - with a wonderful, lavish Frisian breakfast with free-range eggs from our own hens. Under the shelter of the coach-house is the guests’ terrace, from which you can look out over the fields of the Frisian Grasslands.
The barn owl is a regular visitor to our barn. Behind the owlboard (triangular window at the top of the roof) is the owl box, where, if you’re lucky, young owls are being reared.
The history of the farm definitely goes back to 1511, the name Spycker (old Frisian for grain store) having been stated in various documents from 1543 onwards. The present farmhouse was built around 1890.

Een prima Bed and Breakfast op een prachtige plaats in Friesland. Rust en ruimte en toch dichtbij alle grotere steden in Friesland. Prachtige en zeer ruime kamer en een prima verzorgd ontbijt. Charmante gastvrouw. Door de geiten en loslopende kippen prima geschikt met (jonge) kinderen. Zeker aan te raden.
