On the Dwarsdijk, surrounded by grass and an orchard, is holiday home Tien. It looks out on a unique landmark, the Dutch watermill, which lies opposite. Tien, a white rendered house, borders a stream with direct access to the Tienhoven wetlands. This piece of nature is located southeast of the Loosdrechtse Plassen. In the authentic landscape of wetlands and swamp forest, the old pattern of peat cutting is still visible.


The Tienhoven wetlands are important for meadow, water and marsh birds. Rare breeding birds such as the bittern and the black tern breed there. Meadow birds such as black-tailed godwit, redshank and snipe populate the area. The forest is also home to badgers, stoats and squirrels. There are crested newts, damselflies and 26 species of dragonflies. A remarkable feature of this landscape are the plants that thrive in seepage water such as crab shear, water violet, hollow-pipe, menyanthes and bladderwort. Other plants include winter purslane, parsnip and dew blackberry. Along the Kanaaldijk you will find agrimony. All in all, this is a beautiful area with abundant vegetation. The Tienhoven Wetlands are accessible to rowing boats and canoes. Please bring your own boat, because there is no boat rental in Tienhoven. You can launch your boat on the Dwarsdijk. In addition to sailing, you can go for lovely walks in this area. The Vredevoetpad route leads you along the most beautiful spots. The area is also part of the Utrecht Noorderpark, where there are plenty of opportunities for cycling, such as De hazen van Haarzuilens and Groot Mijdrecht.


Holiday home Tien is suitable for 2 people. The kitchen, equipped with underfloor heating, has a dishwasher, microwave and a small fridge. The living room has a large sofa, television and wood burning stove. The bathroom (ground floor) has a double sink and a shower and a separate toilet. On the first floor you will find a double bedroom with single beds. Outside there is a sheltered patio and a covered seating area adjacent to the barn. The barn has an enclosed area for storing and charging (electric) bicycles.
