The Chicken Coop

The Chicken Coop has a private entrance and consists of a seating / kitchen area, a separate bathroom with toilet / shower / sink, and a loft, where you can “perch” in a double bed (2 × 90/200 cm mattresses).

This comfortable and cozy “Coop” is suited for people up to 1.90 m. …otherwise you will most certainly have to duck in the seating area! This part holds a sleeper couch (140×200 cm.), a flat screen-TV and a radio-CD-player.

The open kitchen is fully furnished with a dining table, refrigerator, cooking plates, combo microwave (grill and oven), coffee maker, and hot water kettle. We provide sufficient cutlery and crockery to cater your own meals.


The countryside around Emst is sometimes wide and open, other times full of forests, exciting and impressive. Celtic Fields, a sheep washer, burial mounds, etc. are signs of earlier residents.

The old cultural landscape is still visible and old (hollow) roads cross through the area. Despite the FMD crisis of 2001 farmers are still important carriers of this landscape.

Governments, Nature Organizations and the District Water Board are actively trying to keep the area attractive, and this requires careful and timely discussion with all those involved!
