More information

Where is it located?

The Sweltsje is on the north-east side of Pean-buiten and has a sheltered terrace. It’s highlighted on the map in the slideshow above. You’ll hardly notice the guests in the other houses at Pean-buiten when you’re in the Sweltsje. This house is for real peace seekers and is in a very special part of Pean-buiten.

What does it look like inside?

There are 2 bedrooms in the coolest part of the house, both with a double bed that can be separated into two singles. The (single) beds are Swiss Sense leather-look box springs (2.10 long and 0.90 wide). All beds are fitted with single duvets, pillows with protective covers and flannel bed sheet. Bed linen is available for rent from Pean-buiten, but you can also bring your own.

The bathroom has a shower and double sink unit, and there is a separate toilet.

What does it look like on the inside?

There’s an outdoor lounge seat and a table for 4 on the terrace so you have a choice of seating. Outside lighting makes it cosy on the terrace well into the evening.

Surrounding area

Pean-buiten is on the Wijde Ee, an open lake that is part of one of the most beautiful sailing areas in Friesland. From the lake, you can sail north-east (without going under any bridges) to Grou or to the Alde Feanen national park and the villages of Eernewoude and the Veenhoop. Sail south-west and you get to Akkrum, Terherne and on to the Sneek lake.

You can enjoy this beautiful area by canoe, SUP, skiff, motorboat or sailboat. The diversity means the waters are suited to every level of water sports enthusiast, from beginner to skilled. In addition, there are various cycling and walking routes in the area. The combination of farmland and water are typical of the Frisian landscape. The hospitality and cultural amenities are excellent in the various surrounding villages such as Akkrum, Grou, the Veenhoop and Aldeboarn. Suggestions for tips out can be found in our [activities] section.

Akkrum (5 km) can be reached by car or bike over a winding country road. You may have to wait occasionally as the cows are brought in for milking at our neighbour’s farm. In Akkrum, there’s a supermarket, butcher, baker, chemist, cheese shop, book shop and a few lovely restaurants. Boats are available for rent from us, and in just 15 minutes you can sail to Grou with the best ice-cream parlour in the area, various restaurants and a proper ‘shopping mooring’. Pean has [sailing routes] available for you to try out with the electric skiff or a ‘valk’ sailing boat. You can simply rent a boat along with the holiday home.

Akkrum has a train station, and if you come by train, we can pick you up if necessary.
