In den Groene Specht (In the Green Woodpecker) is a luxury Bed & Breakfast in a (nearly) 300 years old farm in Zwiggelte. Our B&B is in the vicinity of the villages of Westerbork, Emmen and (TT) Assen. The rooms are modern, but the beautiful old bents make it the ideal mix of new and old.

Each room at our B&B has its own luxurious bathroom. The breakfast room offers an opportunity for personal contact with each other and/or other guests.
You can also use all of the the kitchenequipment present here.

There is also a spacious apartment, with a private kitchen, a bathroom, a bedroom and a sleeping loft. The living room has a beautiful clay oven.
The name of the Bed & Breakfast is derived from the Green Woodpecker whom actually has taken up residence in the beautiful little village of Zwiggelte. If you listen carefully you can hear his laughter! The Green Woodpecker is a very special bird and on the list of protected birds.

We look forward welcoming you on this special place on the Drentse Hooglanden.

Your host and hostess,
Willy & Mark
