Slufterhoeve Farm is a rustic landscape in Texel’s Eierlandse polder. The farm’s surroundings provide much to explore. Marvel at the natural beauty of nature reserves the Slufter and the Muy; take in the fresh air among the dunes; or cycle through the endless polders. Close by you’ll find a variety of restaurants, villages, and other attractions.
De Cocksdorp is the nearest village, with the famous red lighthouse as its showpiece. Take the seven-story climb and be treated to a breathtaking view of the Wadden Sea and the North Sea. Also don’t forget about island hopping! Make a crossing with Rederij de Vriendschap for a day trip on the island Vlieland.
There are several restaurants nearby in which to enjoy a tasty Dutch pancake or a more elaborate dinner. For example, the Slufter café is within walking distance of our farm as well as Restaurant Gusta. On warm summer days, the old-fashioned ice cream from the Labora ice cream farm is classic enjoyment.
