Ever slept under the same roof as a herd of sheep? Middenmank is the place where you can try it. The word “middenmank” comes from the Low German dialect and means something like “in the middle of it”. That´s where you’ll find this resort: in the middle of a pretty village in the north-eastern part of Germany. The small village with its rural buildings is called Glaisin and has been officially crowned one of Germany’s most beautiful villages. In Middenmank you live in a typical farmhouse. But the buildings were completely renovated in 2011. While the historical construction and materials are still visible, the interior is bright and spacious and offers modern day comforts. And the special feature: the sheep have their stable under the same roof as the six apartments. So you and your kids can watch them whenever you like to.
In 2014 the former washhouse was converted into a 95 sqm holiday home. It sleeps 4 adults and 4 children.
