Where Veluwe woodlands meet the IJssel valley, not far from Veluwezoom National Park, lies the Rhederoord estate. Dating back to 1746, this country manor is located just outside the village of De Steeg, surrounded by 30 acres of parkland, beautiful gardens and various outbuildings. The interior is surprisingly contemporary, yet it has lost none of its historical atmosphere.
The 22 stylishly furnished guestrooms are in the main house and coach house. All rooms have views of either the delightful IJssel valley or the woods. The contemporary restaurant in the coach house has a sense of grandeur well suited to its surroundings. Whenever possible, the chefs use organic ingredients, often locally sourced.
The picturesque surroundings simply beg to be explored. A stroll through ancient woodland will bring you to the Posbank, where you can rest your legs and enjoy one of the Veluwe region’s most stunning views. Experience Rhederoord estate!
The restaurant is in the estate’s former coach house. The use of wood preserves the historic atmosphere, but with the stylish and contemporary furnishings in bright colours, the coach house interior has both feet firmly in the 21st century. Chef Jeroen van Deursen selects the best organic, regional ingredients in dishes with clear connections to traditional French cuisine. The Menu Marché offers you the flavours of the Betuwe and Veluwe regions, and the Dutch river landscape.
The Koetshuis Rhederoord Restaurant is open daily from 4.00pm. Lunch is available on request from 8 people.
Landgoed Rhederoord is set in a 12-hectare park in English landscape style, wonderful for a stroll or the start of a bike ride. If you get thirsty, you can fill up your bottle with water from the estate’s own spring. Both the main house and the coach house have terraces with views of the estate and parkland.
The Veluwezoom National Park is on your doorstep, with 50 square kilometres of forests, heath and sand drifts. The Rhederoord estate makes the perfect starting point for a walk or bike ride. The varied landscape of the nearby river IJssel flows through beautiful historic Hanseatic cities such as Zutphen and Deventer. The shops and restaurants of Arnhem are a 30-minute drive away, as is Burgers’ Zoo. In just over an hour you can cycle to De Hoge Veluwe National Park, renowned not only for its wildlife, but also the Museum Jachthuis Sint Hubertus and the world famous Kröller-Müller Museum, with one of the largest collections of paintings by Van Gogh.
