Our Blue Barn

The Blue Barn is actually more than a B&B, because you’re renting an entire farmhouse with a garden.

The building consists of a large hall, with a bathroom with shower and toilet, a kitchenette with the necessary amenities and a large living and sleeping area. There are no separate bedrooms, so it is a room that is best suited for two people. But the B&B is also suitable for families with small children; In addition to the double boxspring, there is also a great sofa bed in the livingroom, which can be turned into an extra bed with two sleeping places in no time. There is also the possibility for children or extra guests to set up their own tent in the garden.

  •   One of the best places I’ve stayed in on Airbnb - the space is very cozy and nicely decorated and the breakfast was delicious. They had bikes for us to use and was a perfect place to do some cycling and walking. We could also easily ride (10 min) to the nearest town for dinner. Highly recommend and will stay here again!

Who are we

We are Richard & Jacqueline


We live with great pleasure in the outskirts of Hengelo in our farmhouse from 1851. The barn of the farm has had all kinds of functions, but we are most enthusiastic about the destination it currently has: a B&B, fully equipped, in which we can welcome our guests with open arms.

We both work fulltime, but in our free time we are always busy in and around the house, gardening and all kinds of creative projects. You could also call the B&B such a ”creative project”, which was born out of pleasure. Richard is mainly concerned with the garden and maintenance, while Jacqueline always comes up with new ideas for the design and for all kinds of delicious food that she can prepare. Therefore your breakfast is in good hands.
