Some insiders think that the 650 year old Twickel Estate, belonging to the 16th century Twickel Stately Home may be the most beautiful part of the Dutch Twente region. In the centre lies ‘De Haar’. The main building offers seven independent, luxurious twin-bedded apartments each with their own bathroom and entry.
Some 150 ancient farmhouses are scattered across this area, they are easily recognizable as being a part of the Twickel Estate by their black and white shutters. The ‘De Haar’ farmstead consists of three separate official national monuments. With its grounds it forms an integral part of the characteristic landscape surroundings. The farmstead comes under the Dutch National Landscape Act.

There is no garden in the proper sense of the word as the farmstead is an integral part of the surrounding grounds. An early riser may even run into a deer. The ancient Twickel Estate boasts two working mills, one for linseed and an ancient sawmill. The ‘De Haar’ grounds are adjacent to an 18 hole golf course. There are numerous possibilities for walking or cycling as well as for shopping and dining. The old Twickel Estate, the orangerie, its park and its gardens, are open for guests from ‘De Haar’.
After the present owners acquired the buildings, the farmstead has undergone a complete and beautiful restoration. The main building now offers seven independent, luxurious twin-bedded apartments each with their own bathroom and entry. There are three somewhat larger apartments that provideroom for a cot or a child’s bed. The large living room is used for breakfast and the former hunting room is also shared by guests. The ‘De Haar’ farmstead (‘The Seven Oaks’) is eminently suited for larger groups and meetings.
