Just drive for one hour and you're a million miles away from everything you know. From the city we drove to the nature reserve in the Utrecht area. And suddenly in the far distant you can see Parc Broekhuizen. This estate was recently made into a hotel, but the history still seeps through its walls. A quick getaway that feels like a vacation. Isn't that what we all need sometimes?
We were the only ones in the castle. Not that we would have noticed other people anyway. The interior is carefully chosen and the surroundings of the hotel are so relaxing. Unfortunately the kitchen closed early on Sunday, so we went out for dinner at restaurant Bentinck just a 15 minute drive away. Here we enjoyed lovely wine and tasteful dishes in the former horse stables.
Short & sweet
Our stay was short and sweet. I would totally recommend staying here, but maybe on a "busy" day so you can really enjoy the kitchen and hotel vibe. Something we missed out on a little bit. Combine your stay with a trip to the city of Utrecht and a nice stroll through nature. You won't be disappointed!
