Do you want to stay in fairytale surroundings? How about a 13th-century castle with a moat and turrets? Stayokay Heemskerk is set in Slot Assumburg - an ancient castle which offers modern comfort in a historic setting. It’s just 25 minutes from Amsterdam and close to the beach. With tasteful and distinctive rooms, such as original tower rooms, you’ll feel like the lord or lady of the manor!

There is capacity for 180 guests and some rooms are located in the castle’s turrets. Facilities include a bar, restaurant and bicycle hire. Enjoy a walk through the beautifully manicured grounds around the castle or rent a bike to go for a trip through the countryside. Wake up each morning to a complimentary breakfast in the authentic dining room.

Nearby, you’ll find the North Holland Dune reserve, a great national park where you can easily walk or bike. Or go by car to the little seaside towns of Wijk aan Zee, Bakkum or Castricum. Uitgeestermeer lake is less than 3 kilometres away and is perfect for canoeing, surfing and sailing. Don't forget the windmills at the Zaanse Schans, the Keukenhof flower gardens, the IJmuiden fishing harbour or the Beverwijkse Bazaar!
