Staying with us at the Milkhouse is a historical discovery of a glorious history dating back to the Golden Age of the Netherlands. The B&B is situated in the basement of a seventeenth-century canal house that was once the setting for leading trade and the flamboyant Dutch aristocracy. The house contains a rich history and was built in 1670 as a merchant's house. After having had many owners, the house has mainly served as the head office of the National Co-operative Dairy Distribution Center also called 'The Milkhouse'. The dairy sales center was later merged and moved and to this day is still proudly Dutch and known as Royal FrieslandCampina N.V.
