The time has come, the helm is changing!

Following up on an earlier blog, here it is.

Whereas before the B&B was always open on weekends and vacations, now we go for it.

Chris has resigned from his employer and will now run the B&B entirely. That means that starting August 1, 2023, we will be open 7 days a week and ready for guests.

'It has now been 35 years since I was introduced to the world of horizontal directional drilling.

Of which the last 25 years, happily employed by Visser Smit Hanab.


Sometimes you come to a time in your life and wonder, is this what I want. Working a lot, long days and being away from home a lot for a living.

From this point of view, the dream was born to start a B&B, to pursue dreams.

Over 6 years ago we bought an old farmhouse and completely remodeled it. And the result is impressive. The B&B has become beautiful and we are very proud of it. 


Now the time has come to say goodbye to my colleagues, team and employer.

A new phase in life has begun, the B&B will now open 7 days a week. 

I am immensely looking forward to welcoming all the guests and surprising them with a delicious fresh breakfast.

Who knows, see you soon!

Warm regards, Chris Both

Update apartment 'The Front House'

In addition to the B&B rooms, we are in the background building a spacious and luxurious vacation apartment.

The apartment is located on the first floor of the farmhouse.
The apartment is equipped with its own kitchen. This eliminates the need to eat out every night and allows you to prepare your favorite meals yourself.

The bedroom is separate from the living/kitchen area.


  • the Voorhuis does not include breakfast

The apartment's private kitchen is almost ready for use.

The "Mystery Guest" dropped by!

The icing on the cake!
Recently we have received the 'Mystery Guest' in our B&B Lyts Paradys. With pride we can now mention that our B&B has been qualified with 5 tulips. 
Recognised by Stichting Bed & Breakfast Nederland:
"A Bed & Breakfast with five tulips is of an exceptional level. The B&B is taken care of down to the last detail and everything is done to ensure you have a fantastic stay. The facilities, service and quality are top notch and as a guest you lack nothing."
Below is an excerpt from the Mystery Guest's report:
Lyts Paradys, or the little paradise. Make that the big paradise! What a wonderful place this is, a true pearl in Friesland'.
