Sleep in a church
Never imagined that during holidays, you could lay your head to rest in an old village church? It is possible in the holiday home in Oosterbierum. The church – ‘De Kraak van Van Dam’ – has three bedrooms en offers place to a maximum of 13 adults. It has five bedrooms of which two have also a bunk bed. For the little ones we have campground beds, baby chairs and a baby bath.
Are you looking for an accommodation which can host up to 10 people? Please check www.ievers.nl. ievers is also a lodging house church.
The church hall
The living area in De Kraak is much bigger than in most holiday residences. Although, the church has many cosy corners. The kitchen is situated two steps higher than the rest of the church hall. The inside terrace is even higher: on window height you can enjoy the view on the terp and the village. On the ground floor there is also a sitting area, with a loose couch – highly valued by our guests. A large reading table offers enough space for 7 persons. And finally, there is the billiards corner and the corner with the church benches with nice art books.
We don’t need to mention the ceiling, the pulpit and the organ are eye catchers.
The kitchen in De Kraak has an ashlars sink from Belgium and is fully arranged. The furnishing contains a fridge, a freezer, a dishwasher and an oven/microwave. Who loves to cook can use a wide selection of kitchen equipment, casseroles and sauce and stew pans. Basic herbs, oils and salt are always present. In the kitchen you also find a washing machine, which has a dryer build in.
In De Kraak there are three bathrooms. The bathroom contains toilet, a sink and a nice hot shower. The sanitary is modern and hygienic.
Bed linen and towels
We think the preparation of a stay in De Kraak should not include dragging bed linen. So your beds will be made at your arrival. In the church you will find enough towels and the typical Dutch wash clothes.
