Landhuys Noorderhaecks is situated in the beautiful south of Texel, 250 meters from the dunes of Texel National Park. Just behind the Prins Hendrik waddendijk and within walking distance by ferry, this place is a surprising holiday resort.
Where the Wadden Sea merges into the North Sea, hidden in the greenery, the Landhuis offers the tranquillity of Texel, combined with easy access to popular villages, bus connections, the Texel National Park dunes, the nature reserves Mok Bay and Hors and the beach. An ideal starting point for activities in the forest, the dunes, the beach and the sea.
Built around 1961 as a farm
Landhuys Noorderhaecks consists of a house, a 4-person leisure apartement, two luxurious 2-person suites, a 2-person studio and a monumental sheepfold dating from around 1890. The total area of the country house and the surrounding farm is almost 8,000 m². Originally it was built around 1961 as a farm.
In 2018 it was modernised and converted into a country house. In 2019 the former stable on the ground floor and on the first floor was converted into a recreation house and country house suites. The country house has a private driveway to a spacious courtyard.
Enjoy the views
Texel stands for vastness, clouds, freedom, immeasurable views, being outside, walking on the beach, in the dunes and woods, cycling, peace and quiet, but above all: not having to do anything.
Landhuys Noorderhaecks is situated between the typical Texel fields. The garden of the country house is a popular place for butterflies and a great variety of birds. In addition to sparrows, titmice, blackbirds and song thrushes, the white wagtail, yellow wagtail, redwing, wheatear and kingfisher are regular guests in our garden.
Sandbank de Razende Bol
Landhuys Noorderhaecks gives the sandbank south-west of Texel its name; 'the Noorderhaecks'. Today this sandbank (island) is called 'Razende Bol'. This high sandbank is more than a hundred years old and covers an area of 700 hectares at high tide.
The island was created by two currents: the current from the North Sea and the current from the Marsdiep. The confluence of these currents caused sand to sink to the bottom. When enough sand settles, the sand finally rises above the water. The Raging Sphere is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, but is largely open to the public.
