Bed & Breakfast Gibbeflecht

Een gastvrij onthaal voor een vriendelijke prijs in het hart van Friesland

In the heart of Friesland

The home of Cathy and Loek is located in Mantgum, a beautiful village situated on the railway line Leeuwarden-Sneek-Stavoren. We offer a warm welcome, a relaxed atmosphere, a spacious room with good beds and a nice breakfast with freshly squeezed juice and a bio-egg.

Walkers and cyclists can enjoy here a night with breakfast. But the location is also ideal as a base to visit surrounding cities such as Leeuwarden, Sneek, Franeker, Harlingen, Bolsward and Workum or to make a day trip to the islands. All these places are quick and easy to reach; also by public transport.

Because of its central location, easy accessibility and facilities such as free W-IFI, our B&B is also a good residence address for business quests.

The flat land with the characteristic small villages is ideal for cycling or walking. Mantgum is situated on a cycling and walking network. The Eleven Citiies route, the Jabikspad (pilgrimage) and Rietland / Hanzeroute go there along.

Gibbeflecht is the old-Frisian Word for Dovercote. An appropriate name for our B&B, where guests fly in and out for a short or longer stay.
