Sleeping in a straw-igloo with a view on the stars!
Feel one with nature in this unique and extremely cozy igloos built of straw. Where the Inuit previously showed their special architecture with blocks of ice, we have studied and copied it and we build with straw-bales. The round design is unique in its simplicity, but very strong and effective. The circular space provides a sense of intimacy and hospitality. Wind and weather are kept outside. Inside its is warm and cozy with a small heater. In top of the igloo there is a large glass dome through which you can admire the stars. On a clear day and in spring you see fly over the first birds. Each straw igloo is fully furnished with straw beds, a dining area, electricity, heating, and a small fridge. There are two igloos for two to four people and one igloo for two people.
With good weather you can enjoy breakfast outside at your own picnic table. With the beautiful view over the vast lands of Groningen it is magical as if the world is at your feet.
On a short distance is the bathroom with showers and toilets (heated in winter) and a separate wooden cabin where you can make coffee / tea and cook. All facilities are available.
Kids also love the straw igloos, especially since the trampoline and playgroundwith swing is nearby the igloos.
