Tinallinge is very special: an unspoilt northern Groninger village of 20 houses and farmhouses clustered around the old church, timeless and green, imbedded in peace and quiet.

Since we have bought the former poorhouse in the 90-ies, it is completely restored, carefully preserving the authentic exterior.

Inside we also kept many old elements, which we have combined with modern comfort.
The cottage is tastefully decorated to match the historic value.



It is ideal for those who want to enjoy nature, silence, peace and quiet, in an authentic setting.

Tinallinge is situated 20 kilometers north of the city of Groningen, 6 kilometers as the crow flies south of the Wadden Sea.
It is located on the Groningen “Hoogeland”, the countrysitde with its historic farms: vast estates with magnificent views, small forgotten “terp” villages and shiny winding streams.

This is a dream house! Small, yet roomy, all one needs to leave the day- to day routine behind. Sleepy Tinallinge was not so sleepy during New Year’s Eve J. Everybody loves firework around here.

Our favourite features of this great house: the sofa and of course the sauna and, not to forget of course, the bath tub!

This place really helped us to come down, collect our thoughts and to come up with some great resolutions for 2014. We plan coming back here to validate how much became reality.

Thank you for creating this wonderful place!

The Lutje Hoeske is a beautiful small house and a good place to relax completely.
It is very well equipped, from radio-CD player to a mixer and pancakes pan.
The cottage has lots of atmosphere and the luxury of the great bathtub and sauna is delicious.

We did like the stay in the Lutje Hoeske very much.
It met fully to our expectations, based on the information of the site.

Lots of atmosphere and luxury.
And the peace on the countryside is fantastic.

Acttractive furnished cottage in a typical Groningen village, beautiful area
with clay soil and tremendous views over the countryside.

Central location to visit many historical villages in the area.

The open-air museum in Warffum is a must to realize the historic setting of the area you’re in.

We have had a wonderful time in the Lutje Hoeske on the “flat” Groningen countryside.

We were looking for a quiet spot to be able to enjoy ourselves and relax completely.
That was exactly what we’ve found here!

Thanks, Annette and Gerhard , for your helpfulness and good care.

We have loved to be In your cosy and very clean house and enjoyed very much your, at the same time obliging and restrained, way of helping us.

The environment and nature around Tinallinge was very refreshing

We could perfectly combine the peace and quiet with short trips to the beautiful and bustling city of Groningen and the magnificent island of Schiermonnikoog.
It made it into a varied short  holiday.

We would love to return again to have another great holiday with you and we wish you a lot of satisfied guests for the future , as we are.

With love, Birthe and Dirk
