Step back in time in this imposing, 17th Century castle in a beautiful location in Hierden, close to Harderwijk. You’ll find an oasis of calm here in the green heart of the Veluwe. Kasteel de Essenburgh – Hampshire Classic has forty rooms, including several castle rooms, with views across the rustic, English landscape garden and pond. If you’re lucky you’ll even spot deer from your room.
Kasteel de Essenburgh – Hampshire Classic is situated midway between Harderwijk and Apeldoorn. This offers various possibilities for fun trips with the entire family, such as the Dolfinarium in Harderwijk or Palace Het Loo and the Apenheul in Apeldoorn. But you can of course also make fantastic cycle trips and walks in the countryside. Around the hotel you’ll find forests and expansive heathland where you can enjoy a wonderful day out in the fresh air.
Vaulted cellar “De Oude Mheen”
The kitchen in the vaulted cellar’s restaurant uses only fresh and as far as possible, organic, produce. From chocolate “castle muffin” to sorbet, it’s all home-made. The restaurant can seat sixty guests who can enjoy an evening three-course dinner. You can also choose from the seasonal menu. If you are with a large group, you can discuss with the Head Chef about organising something different or composing a special menu. From a walking dinner to a barbecue: everything is possible.
In the breakfast room next to the restaurant you can enjoy an extensive breakfast buffet every morning from 8.00 a.m., including home-made bread, sugar bread, croissants and home-made raspberry jam. The castle’s vaulted cellar also houses the stylish hotel bar. The bar is open every evening and also has an outside patio with views across the country estate.
Kasteel de Essenburgh – Hampshire Classic is the ideal hotel for business guests. This is partly because of the tremendous hospitality and beautiful, calm surroundings with forests and heathland.
