Imagine stepping into a fairytale, where castles with moats and turrets are your reality. Welcome to Stayokay Heemskerk, nestled within the walls of the enchanting 13th-century Slot Assumburg castle, a quick 25-minute ride away from the buzzing vibes of Amsterdam. And if you’re craving the sand and sea, the beach is less than 30 minutes by bike.
But let’s dive into the good stuff: the castle itself. Get ready for rooms that are as tasteful as they are distinctive. Think original tower rooms that’ll make you feel like royalty. Hold onto your armour though, because with space for 180 guests, we’re not messing around. Some lucky souls even get to sleep in the castle’s turrets. There’s more to this castle stay too. Imagine waking up and taking a stroll through the beautifully manicured grounds. On site we’ve got a bar, a restaurant, and bicycle rental for all your adventures. And every morning, a complimentary breakfast awaits you in the authentic dining room.
Now, let’s talk exploring. The North Holland Dune reserve is practically a stone’s throw away. You can stroll or bike your way through this national park’s beauty. Or, if you’re in the mood for seaside charm, the little towns of Wijk aan Zee, Bakkum, and Castricum are ready to welcome you. Uitgeestermeer lake, a haven for canoeing, surfing, and sailing, is less than 3 kilometers away too.
And hey, don’t forget to check out the windmills at Zaanse Schans, the colorful Keukenhof flower gardens, the bustling IJmuiden fishing harbor, or the vibrant Beverwijkse Bazaar. Stayokay Heemskerk and its surroundings are a treasure trove waiting to be explored. Get ready for a storybook adventure you won’t forget!
