We are offering you time and space in an authentic barn dating back to 1680 which is part of cultural heritage. With a size of 180 m² we are offering comfortable seating space up to 120 persons.

The thatched roof, the wicker work and the original oak roof trusses add character to the building. Despite the age of the Hottentot, you can expect a modern and stylish decor and offer.

The different meadows surrounding the barn are covering 2 hectare and are part of the nature reserve Cassenbroek.

Everything can be organized according to your wishes and we are happy to assist.


The story of the Hottentot dates back to 1680.

The Hottentot supplied the region with fresh vegetables until the end of the 20th century.

In the year 2000 the barn got classified as a monument and the renovation works started. Today, both the barn and the farmhouse are completely renovated. The house has been in the family for 4 generations and we want to build-on the story that our ancestors started.

We are inspired by the cultural-historical value of the landscape, the tranquility of the surroundings and our experiences from corporate life.

These elements turned the Hottentot into what it is now. A place that fosters creativity and where new ideas can grow.

We invite you to come and enjoy the benefits of this journey.
