This house, named after the Hopman family who lived there until 2015, has long served as a carriage house. Resident Jaap Hopman, employed by Staatsbosbeheer, used a horse to drag the cut wood out of the forest. His son, Rinus later took over this task from his father. The horse stayed in the stable next to the house. The stable burned down in the last century. 't Boshuis Hopman has now been rebuilt and refurbished where necessary into a four-bed holiday home.
Vacationing here is beautiful and peaceful. The tranquility here is almost palpable, although birds such as the robin, blackbird, song thrush, wren, goldfinch, pouter, hedge sparrow sing “at the top of their lungs”. The hawk and buzzard can also be spotted here. The Schoorl Dunes, one of the first nature reserves to be managed by Staatsbosbeheer since 1900, is thus a paradise for bird lovers. But children can also get their fill here. Not only is the widest dune in the Netherlands to be found here, the highest dune in our country is also located here. The Klimduin of Schoorl is 51 meters high. Also unique to this dune area are the moors that bloom a beautiful purple in late summer. In the period before that, in June and July, a white carpet emerges: tens of thousands of pine orchids are in bloom.
The nearby Buitencentrum Schoorlse Duinen has a wealth of information about the area in the form of maps, books and brochures. Want to do something active? Beautiful hiking and biking trails start from here. Prefer to wander around on your own? In a few places it is possible to get off the trails to go on your own adventure. Or follow the hiking route and start your own wanderlust along the way.
