About us

We, Rudolf and Britta, are proud owners of this beautiful spot in Valkenswaard. Together with our children Fritz and Frederike, dog Trixi and cat Struppi, we lived in this cozy log cabin for several years. We would like to share this special place with others.

The center of Valkenswaard and the De Malpie nature reserve are within walking distance, as are the many hiking trails and cycling routes through the beautiful surroundings.

In addition to offering a place to sleep, we process fruit and vegetables from our own ecological garden. As the name 'Bij de Appelhof' suggests, we have a wide range of apples. We grow 25 different varieties: from the well-known Elstar to the old Star apple. The harvest season starts from August/September and all these apple varieties are available from us. In addition to apples, we have 7 different pear varieties and a number of cherry, peach and plum trees. In our large vegetable garden, tasty vegetables and lettuces grow, which, depending on the season, are also available from us.
