We visited Van Gaalen early on a friday morning. We walked the mountain trails and then had lunch from the menu. The view is great but service and food was just average.

Stunning al fresco dining or a picnic along the stream. Lots of space for the kids to run around, climb, enjoy the farm animals and a perfect place to enjoy the country air

Wonderful experience, watched cheese being made. Enjoyed lively Cappuccino on the veranda under the trees. Stocked up on all The Dutch treats and of course Dutch Cheese! Drop, stroop waffels and Appelstroop.
