Gardens "Erve Odinc"

The gardens cover 1.2 acres and house, in addition to the thatched farmhouse, a thatched sheepfold, a baking shed and a greenhouse.

On the pastures surrounding the farm, Marion and Klaas van Heuven designed and landscaped the gardens in 1980. They were inspired in part by English garden architecture with its lush plantings in tight frames of hedges. Hedges of beech and partly hawthorn fringe 9 garden rooms. The various axes of view provide surprising vistas of adjacent garden rooms and the landscape surrounding Erve Odinc.

We (Inge and Kees Stapel) have been continuing the garden with great enthusiasm since 2022 and are delighted to live here and welcome you.

You will encounter several classical garden views in the garden.
This led to the garden structure also becoming a separate part of the National Monument in 1996.

In addition to the cottage garden and its lush plantings, features include a rose garden, a pond garden, a farm vegetable and flower garden, an orchard, a greenhouse with a very old grape, topiary and a large berceau.

The farm is surrounded by a number of ancient trees, such as a beech, a yew and about 3 linden trees. These are all on the Dutch list of monumental trees.

Beyond the structure of the hedges, where, for example, the rose arbor is also located, you have an expansive view of the rolling coulisse landscape. In season there are Friesian horses in the adjacent south pasture and ponies on the east side.
