The holiday house radiates the character of late 18th century buildings, yet offers modern comfort, a warm atmosphere and a splendid garden view. The holiday home is situated in Tielt, between cultural cities as Ghent, Bruges & Kortrijk.
The holiday house, called Sleutelhuys (literally translated: House of Keys), houses three bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, a storeroom and a large living room. All bedrooms are spacious and have private bathrooms with shower or bath and toilet. The beds are king size Aupings. A cot can be provided. The house is ideal for families with six persons. For younger children there can be provided an extra bed or cot (max. 8 persons).
The bailiff's house was fully renovated in 2012, but with respect for the historical character of the house (it's on the list of valuable heritage). The owners invested in the latest technology. High speed wireless internet Wi-Fi is available in the whole house. The living room has a flat screen TV set and a sound system. There's a dishwasher and an espresso machine.
The holiday home is situated in the centre of the provincial town Tielt. It's a cosy town with all the shops you need nearby. The bakery, butcher, pharmacy and supermarket are withing a few minutes walking distance. And also some nice restaurants, pubs and terraces are only a few minutes away.
However, the holiday home is an oasis of rest. The 1000m2 walled garden with its old chestnut tree largely contribute to the peacefulness of the holiday home. And also the white painted and lovely decorated rooms does.
In Sleutelhuys there are several facilities. There is a laundry with washing machine, dryer, ironing board and iron. In the rooms bathrobes, towels, bedding, toileteries and a hairdryer are provided. You also don't need to take kitchen linen with you. A toy trunk is available for the very little ones and Family Parlour games await the youth. Cars can be parked on the domain and the gate has a secure entry code.
The holiday home is known as a bicycle-friendly accommodation. Quite some cycling routes startes from Tielt. Cyclists can use a covered garage with an outside tap to clean their bikes. There is a bicycle repair kit and an EHBO-kit available in the house. There are bicycle route maps available in the house, like many other tourist information.
The cultural cities of Ghent, Bruges and Kortrijk are all within 30 minutes driving distance (there's also a train station in Tielt). And also the nice French city Lille you can reach within 30 minutes. Cities as Ypres, Brussels and Antwerp are at one hour from the holiday home. The seaside is at 40 minutes....Read more

We are a Canadian family of four who just spent an amazing 10 days in Tielt at the Holiday Home. We were greeted warmly by Carine and Maaike and shown around the lovely home that had a xmas tree set up for the holiday season. Our family felt comfortable and spoiled by the ambiance that the place provided.
Each of us had a spacious sunny bedroom. Our children loved the fact that they each had a large comfortable bed in their comfortable room. As well having their own ensuite spoiled them. The high speed internet was also a plus for our children, so that they could do what teenagers do.
Looking out the living room and dining room windows made us feel like we were in the countryside, while our door stepped right onto the quaint town of Tielt. The home was very private and exceptionally quite.
The supermarket was a 2 minute walk away. Each day you could hear the chiming of the town clock in the centre square. There were local pubs to visit for amazing Belgium beer or afternoon tea. The local bakery and other shops made for delicious meals. Window shopping was easy and the shop keepers were friendly.
We rented a car that we parked in the yard. That allowed us to tour many of the WW1 and WW2 sites during the day and then come home and prepare a gourmet dinner in the state of the art kitchen. There were two days where we just stayed home and read - enjoying the atmosphere of the house.
Thank you Caine and Maaike for opening up your beautiful place for us to enjoy!
