Altes Schulhaus

With a wide view over green pastures, the holiday home Altes Schulhaus is situated on a dwelling mound in the heart of Eiderstedt, a peninsula in the German federal state of Schleswig-Holstein. It shares the idyllic location on the extensive property surrounded by a canal with the Friesensteern, an old barn that has been converted into a holiday home. In the past, the teacher used to live in the small house, where he also taught the children living in the vicinity. Now the completely renovated cottage is a cosy holiday home, which offers space for four people on 65 square metres. The house has a new thatched roof, new Danish windows with narrow frames that open outwards and has been completely gutted. Inspired by the old stable, the floor on the ground floor is made of exposed concrete – with underfloor heating for those who like to walk barefoot. The monochrome colour concept – grey in combination with light wood – conveys a sense of peace and cosiness. A striking eye-catcher are the nets of the fall protection, which are reminiscent of fishing nets and thus go well with the location near the North Sea.

On the ground floor there is the kitchen-cum-living room, which extends up to the gable, and a bedroom – both with access to the terrace – plus a shower room. Under the roof is a second, open bedroom, a toilet and a lounge. The latter is accessed via a wooden walkway, which is secured by hand-knotted nets. This is no place for small children, but certainly the favourite place of teenagers!

What to do

St. Peter Ording with its wide sandy beaches, Tetenbüll with its Museum Haus Peters, Lighthouse Westerhever, Multimar Wattforum in Tönning, guided tour of a Frisian sheep cheese dairy, visit of the historic churches, excursions to Friedrichsstadt, Husum, Sylt.

Why we like this house

The house is as cosy inside as it looks from the outside and surprises with cool details.

This house is great for

Couples and families with older children (not suitable for small children). In combination with the neighbouring Friesensteer, it is perfect for a holiday with the extended family or friends.

Wir haben den Urlaub im Alten Schulhaus sehr genossen. Das Haus ist mit sehr viel Liebe zum Detail restauriert. In absolut ruhiger Lage, mit genialem Ausblick aus dem Wintergarten direkt auf weidende Schafe, Rinder, Wildgänse, Reiher, Fasane u.v.m. Perfekter Ausgangspunkt für Radtouren nach SPO, Westerhever, Husum oder Tönning. Absolut empfehlenswert. Wir kommen gern wieder.

Ein wunderschönes Ferienhaus in perfekter Lage. Ruhig genug im Hinterland, aber nah genug an SPO und Westerhever. Stilvoll eingerichtet, idyllisch, ein perfekter Ort für vier Personen in Nordfriesland. Gerne wieder, daher absolut empfehlenswert. Fünf von fünf *
