Terra-Maris_garden_fruit_castle

Always nice to visit the grounds of Westhove Castle. You can walk around in the woods, dunes and beach are also very close by.

The castle itself is a Stayokay hostel (I’ve even worked there for a season, years ago) and the former conservatory is home to Terra Maris: a small natural history museum with a botanical garden.

I wanted to give you a little peek of the gardens:

Terra-Maris_garden_veg

Everything looks so neat and tidy! Signs everywhere in case you want to wander around by yourself. Which I always do. There are also guided tours and workshops.

Terra-Maris_garden_herb

Nice to see some extra information about the herbs. Unfortunately in Dutch only. It would have been nice if they added English and German as well, as it is a touristy area.

Terra-Maris_garden_wood

Use of wood in the gardens.

Terra-Maris_garden_chickens_castle

See that little black shed? Really funny chickens there. Of course I forgot to take photos…

Have you ever visited Westhove or Terra Maris?
