In den Groene Specht (In the Green Woodpecker) is a luxury BNB in a (nearly) 300 years old farm in Zwiggelte. Our B&B in Drenthe is in the vicinity of the villages of Westerbork, Emmen and (TT) Assen.

“A luxury BNB in the vicinity of (TT) Assen, Westerbork and Emmen”

The authentic spacious rooms (with private bathrooms) in our farm house are located on the ground floor. The extensive breakfast is served in a separate breakfast room during the day / evening available for guests. All rooms are independent from our house allowing guests to enjoy their privacy.

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,
Haije Stigter
