A really lovely Dutch country house originally owned by a leading local family. Restaurant next to the main house. Superb landscape to wander around. A really good couple of hours.

after walking we went here for a short break. Wheater was cold so we liked a hot choclate. We were disapointed the choclate was'nt hot, a little warm, we could drink it right after serving.

A beautiful "borough", a beautiful and well-maintained park, and a "coach house" where nowadays drinks are served. A guided tour through the castle is helpful, and we have been lucky with a volunteer who entertained us quite a bit!

We have spent a couple of hours in that Borg (Castle). The cafeteria serves a nice apple-pie. The gardens around are very nice to walk.

This castle is well worth a visit. It is very small, but all the rooms have been restored back to what they would have looked like in the past and were fully furnished, decorated etc. It did feel like real castle, rather than as a museum which can be the case in these places. The castle has a very nice... More

Seems a little thrown together. Styles in some of the rooms feel "recreated".

A wonderful country mansion, at the same time stately, warm and discreet. With its present époque interior it is easy to imagine you'd live there far away from the noise and pretension of the town, enjoying your garden too.

Behind the castle is a stretch of garden, rather narrow but long. We were on a campingholiday when we discovered this beauty. The Fraeylemaborg in Slochteren, dating from the middle ages, is situated on a country-park that dates back mainly to the 19th century. The park, after a design partly of G.A. Blum and L.P. Roodbaard, is laid out in... More
