Enjoying nature together and taking responsibility for its protection. That is what we stand for. As Buitenplaats Beekhuizen, we want to increase our impact and make a positive contribution to local biodiversity. We are therefore taking big and small steps towards sustainability.

This has made us decide to remove the fire bowls at the accommodations and implement a ban on open fire at the accommodations. Besides the risk of a wildfire, open fires produce heavy smoke and a considerable emission of harmful substances. This disrupts the ecosystem in many ways. We understand that the campfire at the accommodation will be missed but with this decision, together with you as a guest, we are taking a big step in caring for our environment. Read more about our commitment here.
Restaurant Woodz offers a delicious menu and is a cozy restaurant. You can go to WOODZ for  lunch, drinks and dinner. Reservations can be made online or at the restaurant based on availability. Due to the limited capacity it is wise to make diner reservations.
