IPA House Kloeke is situated in the town of Beemster (North Holland) – a World Heritage Site and adjacent to the Fort at Spijkerboor, built between 1889 and 1911 for the defence of the North Front and only 30 km away from Amsterdam.
Unique to Beemster is that it forms part of the Beemster Polder – a cultural landscape dating from the early 17th century, providing an exceptional example of reclaimed land in the Netherlands. The Beemster Polder was created by the draining of Lake Beemster in 1612 with the intention of developing new agricultural land and space for country residences, and to combat flooding in this low-lying region. The Beemster Polder was the first large project covering an area of 7,208 hectares. Today it is a well-ordered agricultural landscape of fields, roads, canals, dykes and settlements.
The IPA House consists of 2 parts:
The larger house sleeps 9 and has a living room with dining and seating facilities, a fully equipped kitchen and 3 twin bedrooms plus 3 rooms with single beds.
The smaller house sleeps 5 and consists of a living room, kitchen and 3 bedrooms: 2 twin rooms and 1 single room.
Both houses have bathroom facilities including showers and toilets and benefit from central heating.
Barbecue facilities are available, and bicycles can be used free of charge. Bed linen is provided.
The IPA House Kloeke is open year-round.
Please note that there is no public transport available – the use of a car is therefore essential.
