There are supermarkets in Vledder, Diever and Dwingeloo, among others. You can also order a delivery service. If you type the location of the forest house on google maps and then supermarket, you will see them very clearly on the map.

Is there a wood stove?

All forest houses have an outdoor stove. At Boshuisje Wateren and Boshuisje Doldersum there is wood to use. At Boshuisje De Eekhoorn and Boshuisje Oude Willem, pick it up yourself at, for example, a supermarket. We deliberately do not have a wood stove in the cottages. These are too polluting for the environment. For this reason we do not have a hot tub.   If there is a method whereby you can responsibly use rainwater for a hot tub, then we are certainly interested.
