The Maashorst is the largest continuous nature reserve in Brabant. It is a magical territory inhabited by Bison, Exmoor pony and Tauros amongst others. An area where nature is in charge. Where trees, plants and animals rule. Make your way past trees, streams and wildlife. Discover the historical excavations and all other ancient treasures of De Maashorst.

Your accommodation Cabin ANNA promises a sublime experience where you will find the perfect balance between home, nature and people.  Wake up with birds at your bedside. Sleep under the bare starry sky. Breathe the fresh air of the Maashorst nature reserve. By sliding with the glass and wooden interior and exterior parts of the cottage, you choose the atmosphere and security you need.
