Welcome to holiday cottage/B&B ‘t Stee van Anne P.
You will find us in Rottevalle, a picturesque village near Drachten, Friesland, in the middle of an area called the Noardlike Fryske Wâlden (Northern Frisian Woods).
't Stee fan Anne P
'Stee' means 'place', the name of the cottage thus meaning 'Anne P.'s Place'. It is a complete house, authentic from the outside and very comfortable on the inside. But take care: inside the property you will notice that this is a very old labourer's cottage. Many a guest will have to stoop because the door posts are very low. And have you always wanted to sleep in a box-bed? That's possible here. We think, however, that in the evening you will prefer the bedroom, with its normal bed, to the box-bed.
Who was Anne P.?
Anne Veenstra-Posthumus, locally known as Anne P., has been and still is a household name in Rottevalle. The cottage at Brouwersgreft 5 is a monument and was Anne P.'s property for more than thirty years. After her death in 2013 we bought it in 2014 and renovated it to what it is today.
A small village in the municipality of Smallingerland, centrally situated in the Northern triangle of the towns Leeuwarden, Groningen, Assen. Rottevalle is steeped in history. Plenty of history books about the village are available in the cottage if you are a history enthusiast. Brouwersgrêft, for instance, lies within the old village centre and existed long before the village got its name.
