Croy country estate

To this day, it is still not known when Croy Castle was built. What is known is how it got its name. In any case, it is certain that in the year 1472 one Rutger van Erp owned a small castle with a farmstead in Strijp, about 20 hectares in size. In 1477 Rutger van Erp sold this castle to Jacob van Croy, a member of the famous Van Croy family, who belonged to the Burgundian court. However, Jacob was only the owner for 17 years, because in 1494 he sold the castle again to Cornelis I of Bergen. It was probably Cornelis who had the castle extended to its current size. Cornelis also had the beautiful gatehouse built. Afterwards, many noble families inhabited the castle. The last noble family was the Van der Brugghen.

Mieke Keser has lived in the beautiful gatehouse of Croy Castle for almost 20 years. Since the spring of 2006, she has made one of her rooms available for Bed & Breakfast. A unique experience to spend the night in the gatehouse of Croy Castle, which dates from 1495.
 

Special atmosphere

The guest room is located on the ground floor of the building and is beautifully furnished with antique furniture. The room is suitable for two persons and has its own toilet and shower facilities. Not only the accommodation is beautiful. Also the environment of Bed & Breakfast Croy is beautiful. Situated on the natural estate Croy, less than 50 meters from Croy Castle, a visit to the gatehouse immediately brings a great atmosphere and a natural peace. There are plenty of cycling, horse-riding and walking possibilities. This makes this accommodation extremely suitable for romantics, peace seekers, seniors and business people.

After a good night's rest, Bed & Breakfast Croy offers a good breakfast. The breakfast that Mieke Keser serves you in the dining room of the gatehouse is prepared to perfection. In consultation, a lunch (or packed lunch) is also possible. And for dinner there are several restaurants in the vicinity. Mieke Keser will personally ensure that everything is taken care of down to the last detail and that your stay at Bed & Breakfast Croy will be one to remember!
