Landhaus Averbeck

Bergen, Lower Saxony, Germany

The historic country house in the Lüneburg Heath from 1907 has been an owner-managed family hotel or, to be more precise, the "Familotel Landhaus Averbeck" since 2011. The owner family had previously run an asparagus farm in the area.

Frauke, Ross and their three adult children run a very special hotel. With its thirty rooms, it is large enough for the all-round carefree package and personal enough to feel individually cared for. The entire family holiday should be warm, uncomplicated and close to nature. While the parents relax, there is a lot for the children to discover. For everyone together there is the big pool, nature, good food and fresh air.

In addition to the varied sports program for the grown-ups, there is also an extensive children's program with handicrafts, fun in the vegetable garden, creative workshops, treasure hunts and a lantern parade. A special highlight are of course the farm animals and the paddocks.

The differently sized rooms and cabins are bright, modern and individually furnished. The fresh colors and colorful wallpaper are complemented by charming decoration ideas. It is the ideal place for everyone who does not want to do without a stylish interior, even with children, and at the same time wants to spend relaxed child-friendly holidays.

The team is very friendly and helpful. In the in-house restaurant "Kleine Möhre" with a cozy terrace, head chef Gunnar and his team prepare delicious food for every taste. Inside, you can even look from the table into the 250 square meter play barn with slide and climbing tower, in case the parents want to talk to each other or the other guests longer. You can then continue the good conversations on the terrace in the evening - relaxed parents and happy children will surely fall asleep peacefully afterwards.

FoodSustainability and treating nature with respect are very important to the owners. Hof Holsten supplies the fresh vegetables that were not grown on the farm itself. Gardener Julia plants runner and French beans, courgettes, carrots, Hokkaido pumpkins and various types of potatoes as well as herbs and edible flowers on the farm. The fresh products that are still needed are delivered by local suppliers in reusable boxes. If required, packed lunches for excursions can also be packed or fresh pizza baked.

EnvironmentThe roofs are extensively and discreetly equipped with a photovoltaic system. LED lamps are used in the house and the electricity comes from our own combined heat and power plant, which also produces heat that can be used for heating. There is also a wood chip system that generates environmentally friendly heating and electricity. The house water is filtered and the beds are mostly irrigated by drip irrigation. This ensures a continuous, needs-based water supply and water does not seep into the ground unnecessarily. In addition, the leaching of soil minerals and soil nutrients is minimized. Only natural detergents and cleaning agents are used and a steam cleaner is used for cleaning. The use of plastic is largely restricted.

Well-BeingIn addition to numerous sports courses, cosmetic and massage treatments are offered. The large sauna and the pool, which is heated from April, are particularly beneficial. The course program consists of fitness and Pilates courses. You can also take part in jogging groups and rent bicycles for free.

Über Rang zwei in Niedersachsen freut sich ein besonders idyllisches Urlaubsdomizil: Das Familotel Landhaus Averbeck liegt mitten in der Lüneburger Heide und weiß Familien mit seinem naturverbunden, ursprünglichen Bauernhof-Flair zu überzeugen. Seit 2005 führen Frauke Averbeck-Pennington und Ross Pennington das 4-Sterne-Hotel in ländlicher Lage. Dank der Spielscheune „Landlümmels“, dem Außenpool und Schwimmbad sowie den zahlreichen Hoftieren fühlen sich alle Familienmitglieder auf Anhieb wohl. Im Jahr 2023 wird eine alte Scheune neu eröffnet und soll mit einer Bar samt Dachterrasse, hoteleigenem Kino und modernen Fitnessräumen zum neuen Herzstück des Hofes werden., March 2023

Das Landhaus Averbeck in der südlichen Lüneburger Heide ist so ein Ort, den man gar nicht mehr verlassen möchte. Hier wurde einfach an alles gedacht. Die 250 qm große Spielscheune mit Rutschen, Trampolin, Bällebad und separatem Kleinkindbereich ist vom Restaurant aus einsehbar, sodass Mama und Papa in Ruhe essen können, während der Nachwuchs schon mal Spaß hat. Auf dem Hof gibt es viele Tiere zum Streicheln und auch Ponyreiten und Reitstunden werden angeboten. Kinder- und Babybetreuung, Innen- und Außenpool, Fahrradverleih, Spielplatz und ein großer Bauerngarten machen den Familienurlaub perfekt., March 2023
