The Middenmank holiday farm with six holiday apartments and a holiday home was created from an old Büdnerei in the beautiful village of Glaisin in south-western Mecklenburg. The identity of the old farmhouse was preserved and the stable was left for the sheep. What used to be common in farmhouses has been taken up again here: the animals sleep right next to the guests. From some apartments and from the hallway, the sheep can be observed through pebble windows.
Andre Schuldt and Britta Paarmann founded Middenmank eleven years ago. The farm's apartments are Scandinavian in style, but decorated differently. The children sleep in cozy alcove beds and there is also a large playroom modeled on a farm - with a cute living room with bed, kitchen and courtyard. In addition, many excursions, from tractor and canoe tours to forest hikes, are offered for young and old.
Incidentally, Middenmank is Low German and means “in the middle”. And the name says it all: The holiday farm in the middle of the village, the sheep in the middle of the house, Glaisin in the middle of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, in the middle between Berlin and Hamburg, and when families vacation here, they're right in the middle, among all the other families. You can meet outside at the grill and fireplace, with the children in the workshop or in the covered arbor by the stove - if you like.
ArchitectureThe identity of the old farmhouse has been preserved. The largest holiday apartment, the Däl, is located in the former hall of the house. Harvest wagons used to drive here and the hay was stored here. The barn opening has been restored and glazed. The doors and windows are made of wood and the furniture, such as some tables and the alcove beds for the kids, are made from old scaffolding planks. A lot of furniture is made of multiplex panels and is therefore very durable. After eleven years, not a single piece of furniture (apart from the sofas) has had to be replaced.
EnvironmentMiddenmank is only heated with self-cut wood (hot water, heating). The electricity is green, the rubbish is separated and the bed linen is mended several times before it is changed. Cleaning agents are also used very gently and in an environmentally friendly manner. Garbage is of course separated, the bins are ready and this is briefly mentioned again in the guest information. In addition, Grandpa Ritschi, as a retired head forester, does the weekly forest tours and explains the complex interrelationships in nature to even the smallest rangers.
Well-BeingThere is a small sauna on the farm and the possibility of canoe tours, forest hikes and tractor tours. If you like to breathe in the sea air and let your thoughts wander by the water, the Baltic Sea is not far either (about an hour by car).
