Strawbale, straw igloo and hayloft accommodation
Hans & Wil Hoogeboom offer different options for straw-themed accommodation on their Hayema Heerd farm. Maybe a classic hayloft straw bed? Or a straw castle with drapes, fancy chandeliers and soft cow skins on the floor? Perhaps a straw igloo with clear glass central viewing panel for guests to stargaze from the comfort of their bed?
With a thick layer of fresh straw covered by a comfortable mattress, sleeping on straw is soft, springy, comfortable and warm all year round.
“Farm fantasy on straw beds”
There are three sleeping options at Hayema Heerd.
The hayloft, straw castle and some special straw igloos. These igloos are well insulated - so suitable for year-round usage. They feature a clear centre skylight, so you're able to look at the stars from the comfort of your bed.
