Stay on a boat in Diksmuide, Belgium

We live on a 108 year Dutch Tjalk. W​e love our floating lifestyle and like to share the experience. Imagine waking up on an ancient Dutch barge on the Ijzer river. Your stateroom and private bath is in the aft part of the barge but you have the option of spending time in other parts too.​ We have two staterooms, one has a double bed and the other has a double and an single that can be converted to three singles. Both have complete bath (actually showers)


Our old Dutch Tjalk is fitted to high standards (with an AGA and underfloor heating for comfort!) and we have two staterooms available, one has 3 singles or a king double and a single and the other one has a double bed. Both have ensuites with showers.


WE like creature comforts so have outfitted our Tjalk with all the major conveniences, listed above. Coffee and tea are always ready and a continental breakfast is also available.


Diksmuide, Belgium, is in the heart of the commemorative areas for both world wars and all monuments are within a few miles. The front line in the Great War was near the River Ijzer and all is documented in the nearby museums.

The Area

The wonderful cities of Bruges and Gent are close by as are Ypers, and the beach areas of Belgium such as Nieuwpoort and Oostende.

What's special about this boat

This is an unique opportunity for you to experience life onboard an historic barge. From the exterior she looks much like she did in her working days many years ago in the Netherlands. Inside she is a modern open plan comfortable and inviting living space.

About the marina/waterway

The Ijzer river ends at Nieuwpoort on the Belgian coast but lazily wanders from there upriver past Diksmuide, Ypers and beyond.
