12.5 years Bed & Breakfast & Walk-in day ‘Optidee’

This month, 12.5 years ago, we officially started a Bed & Breakfast. After a thorough renovation we created 4 bedrooms with en-suite. Recently, De Kandelaar B&B was again awarded with 4 tulips by the Bed & Breakfast Nederland organisation.

Walk-in day

In the last 5 years, Mariska has also worked as an advisor for Optidee.  All the beds in the Bed & Breakfast have the wonderful bedding from Optidee; from the comfortable mattress cover with fitted sheets to pillows with beautiful and comfortable pillowcases.

On Saturday 26th September, we are organising a walk-in day from 10:00 to 16:00 where everybody can get acquainted with the latest Optidee products.  Each visitor receives a ticket which gives a chance to win a wonderful Optidee article.




This month our Bed & Breakfast is officially 12.5 years ‘old’.  In the early years we were a member of “Friends on the bike”. There was an increasing demand for rooms with an en-suite (a private shower and toilet). To this end, we renovated the former office building of the test farm. In recent years we have welcomed many visitors from the Netherlands but also abroad.


Meanwhile, work on the farm is in full swing thanks to the beautiful weather. The onions are harvested and stored in the shed. The harvested land is immediately enriched with solid compost and sown with grass. It will stay busy the coming period, because the maize will soon be chopped, the potatoes can soon be harvested and the tulip bulbs will be planted in October.
