Bolwurkhûske is a stunningly renovated holiday home verging on the shady bulwark in Franeker, with an unimpeded view over the Kromme Gracht canal. Located in a tranquil spot which is nevertheless bang in the middle of the historic city centre. Bordering on the widely renowned ‘Sjûkelân’, which has hosted the Royal PC Frisian handball tournament every summer for the past 150 years or more. The tournament is one of the oldest existing sporting events!

The gas fire (with remote control) provides both ambience and a pleasant source of heat. The dining suite tempts one to linger at the table after meals. The extensive range of appliances in the fully equipped kitchen offers everything required to cook at one’s leisure and the supermarket is just around the corner.

The house can amply accommodate two. It is also a particularly pleasant destination for a break outside the summer season.

Practical information

The prices quoted are all-inclusive; there are no booking charges, tourist taxes or additional charges therefore.

The snug holiday home is ideally equipped and has all mod cons. It is also highly convenient for a break outside the summer season. The double bed is made up for you in advance, while there are also ample supplies of both bath and kitchen towels available. The house can accommodate two.

The holiday homes are primarily designed to accommodate adults, and we therefore consider them less suitable for small children. We are unfortunately also unable to provide children’s beds, cots, etc.
