Welcome to Hofstede Bethlehem

Hofstede Bethlehem

The monumental farmstead, “Hofstede Bethlehem”, situated alongside the water on the edge of Hazerswoude Dorp, is a former milk and cheese farm dating from the 18th century. The detached summer house, which stands to the right of the main building, is available for let as a holiday home. It has uninterrupted views of farmland, pastures and an orchard, and is fully equipped with all amenities. In the period of 2007 – 2012 the  Hofstede Bethlehem was restored. The aim was to restore all buildings and the compound to its original condition. In 2009 an award was given for this carefully performed renovation. The summer house and the washhouse were entirely renovated and both function as of summer 2012 as holiday home.


Hofstede Bethlehem is situated in the middle of the ‘Green Heart’ (Dutch: ‘Groene Hart’, a peaceful, green and recreational environment) and the ‘Randstad’ (conurbation of Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Utrecht and the surrounding areas). Public transport in the area is excellent and the farmstead is located along National Cycle Route 4 (LF4). Nature and cultural history lovers will be able to enjoy the pleasures of beautiful polders, reed fields, windmills and lakes. The cycle junction system easily brings you to historic towns such as Leiden, Delft, Gouda and The Hague. The village of Hazerswoude, which has a supermarket, bakery and restaurant, is just 200 meters away. You can also just simply enjoy and take a moment of rest in the garden of the farmstead.
