About the residents

Your hostess

I’m Joan and I’m managing the Hooge Woeste in Emst since 2004.

We look forward to receiving you in the modernized Bed & Breakfast, located right next to our farm. We provide accommodations, with or without breakfast, in this beautiful, natural and relaxing setting, where deer and rare birds can still be seen through the windows.

Are you a horse lover (rider / carriage driver)? We offer a stable and grazing for horses on our own grounds. The other guests are not affected by the horses.

Privacy and relaxation is as important to our guests as it is to us!

Our B&B is excellent for a single night or a few wonderful nights of relaxation, just the two of you, or just by yourself if you prefer!

You are also welcome to visit the Stable, Sheep Cage , Hunting Room or the Chicken Coop with a party of more than two or four, upon prior arrangement. You can consult with Hans about it.

We look forward to welcoming you!


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!
