The historic estate Matanze is located on the banks of the IJssel river, on the edge of the Veluwe. The estate consists of a main building, coach house, tea house, monumental greenhouses and an old service house. The former staff residence of the 17th -century country estate in Terwolde was furnished in 2013 as a particularly stylish and comfortable guest house. Hidden among the greenery is an English landscape garden with various exotic tree species and a surviving monumental witch circle of lime trees. The impressive entrance to the estate gives a good first impression of what is to come: a driveway lined with oak trees leads to a world in which slowing down is easy.
The Bed & Breakfast
Pleasant tranquility, plenty of space and complete privacy are the key concepts of this unique Bed & Breakfast. The beautifully preserved residence is located in the middle of a beautiful, ten-hectare landscaped park, in addition to a carefully restored English landscape garden, historic greenhouses and various ponds. The former staff residence is now an attractive, white-plastered B&B with spacious, comfortable living and sleeping quarters. The sunny terrace offers a view of the deer pasture.
Landgoed Matanze is located near the beautiful Hanseatic town Deventer, less than 5 minutes away by car. Cyclists can use the ferry across the IJssel. There are various walking and cycling routes to follow from the estate, along the river or in National Park Hoge Veluwe. Rental bikes are available.
We really should take the time to slow down and relax completely, far away from the hustle and bustle of the city, in complete privacy, to recharge our batteries and gain new energy. The jacuzzi is located outside on the estate, so you can enjoy a view over the estate and relax in the evening under a beautiful starry sky. Dine in one of the many excellent restaurants in the area.
From your B&B you have a beautiful view of the deer meadow on the estate. Various species of deer, such as the red deer and the fallow deer, can be spotted here. In the morning they are fed by the lady of the house – a beautiful spectacle as the animals all come running for food and fresh hay. There is a high seat in a nearby tree where you can take in the breathtaking view undisturbed. Some guests have even witnessed the birth of a deer calf, a truly unique experience. You can also take a walk outside the fences around Matanze estate to get a good view of all the animals. More stunning animals can be viewed on the banks of the IJssel river, grazing peacefully here on the grassy meadows.
