Henk & Anieta's was the perfect relaxation getaway I was looking for! The Horse Central Holland property is absolutely beautiful and is only a few meters from De Weerribben-Wieden National Park & Forest. Henk & Anieta and their friendly staff made me feel at home from the moment they picked me up in Giethoorn. Right when I arrived I was able to borrow a bicycle and venture around on my own to get the lay of the land. That afternoon, Henk arranged for me to meet with their riding instructor Mirjam and we took an amazing sunset ride thru the forest. The Canteen on property was perfect to grab a morning coffee and watch the horses gallop and play. They have some small snacks available but you'll definitely want to bring food if you're planning to stay on the property or want to make some meals in the in-room kitchenette. Staying in the hotel adjacent to the stables was an awesome experience. Out the front door you have the riding arena and out the back door a breathtaking view of the rural landscape and sunrise. This time, I was the only guest of the hotel and that made for a pretty magical feeling when it (felt like) it was just me and the horses! I didn't go off the property, but if I had wanted to, there were quite a few dining and drink options around the area and a wellness spa close by. All in all - this was a great experience and I want to go back with a group of friends next time and stay longer!
