Chateauhotel en restaurant De Havixhorst

In the beautiful environment of Drenthe, on an estate in Meppel, you will find De Havixhorst. Inhabited by royal families since the 17th century, the original country estate is now a hotel-restaurant with a unique story. It is located in the Reestdal, a brilliant and mysterious piece of nature, on the border of Overijssel and Drenthe. Here you will find inspiration and relaxation. Tourist attractions such as memorial camp Westerbork and the ‘Hunebedden’ are easy to reach. Looking for more amusement? Visit the cities Assen or Groningen up to the north.

Stay in one of the 8 spacious suites for a unique experience. Every suite has its own piece of history in a modern and comfortable setting. Wander through the gardens of the castle or relax, when the weather allows, on our sunny terrace. Take a look at the different packages we offer to complement your stay with us.

Something to celebrate? Or organizing a business gathering? Your guests will enjoy their stay at De Havixhorst, guaranteed. Enjoy biological and organic local products in our a la carte restaurant, visit our wine cellar or come for lunch with your friends or family in our orangery. Let us know your wishes, and we will take care of you!
