Warft Simmerdeis im Sommer


Welcome to Eiderstedt

Warft Simmerdeis is based on the peninsula Eiderstedt in a thatched cottage on a mound, which was first mentioned in 1796 in the books. My property is located on one of the most beautiful streets of Eiderstedt, which is lined with almost 50 thatched houses, Haubargen and farmhouses, as well as different fields and pastures with sheep, cows and horses. A great place to get away from the city life and come to rest. Therefore, guests are welcome from 12 years onwards.

By the way “Simmerdeis” is old Frisian and means “in the summer” – but I hope that you feel like that in any season at Warft Simmerdeis.

Maisonettewohnung mit großer Terrasse

The duplex apartment is on the ground floor and first floor and has its own private entrance that leads to the terrace, which only the tenants of this apartment may use. The kitchen-cum-living room is the highlight of this apartment, as you already have a fantastic view of the garden while having breakfast. There are two fireplaces in the eat-in kitchen – one fireplace is right next to the front door to the large hallway – the common room. The other tenants will be happy if you light the fireplace, as this will heat up the large tiled stove in the hallway, so that there is a cozy atmosphere here too – especially in autumn and winter. The second fireplace is exclusively for you in the dining room area – a glass of red wine in the evening and the view of the crackling fire is a wonderful way to relax. And if you want to work instead of looking into the open fire: Of course, there is also fast free WiFi (fiber optic cable).

The terrace is the focal point in summer, as you can always marvel at nature from here, as the property has an incredible number of old trees and the garden has been lovingly landscaped by the owner with lots of flowers.

From June to September the magnificent hydrangeas are in full bloom and every meal on the terrace is celebrated and is a small garden party. Of course, it can also be a nice sundowner. As one or the other guest says: “More is not possible.”

The high-quality, tastefully furnished kitchen is not only equipped with an oversized oven, dishwasher and stove with ceramic hob and Le Creuset pots, but also with many kitchen tools that make all amateur cooks happy and also invites you to stay longer.

There are two bedrooms on the first floor. The master bedroom with a large Smart TV and a 200 x 1.80 cm bed has an incredible view through the large picture window and the sun kisses you awake in the morning if you haven’t drawn the opaque curtains. The first coffee in bed tastes fantastic with the view of the garden at sunrise and the day invites you to discover North Friesland, or simply to stay in the garden.

A very nice bathroom with brick wall, shower bath, ceramics and fittings from England and Victorian floor tiles leads directly off the master bedroom, which all guests (ideally a family) share. Hair dryer, shampoo, soap and towels are of course available.

The second bedroom, also very comfortable, overlooks the orchard area, has a 200 x 140 cm bed and is said to have a fantastic quality of sleep.

190 € (bookable from 4 nights)

My holiday home Simmerdeis on the canal is located in the Dutch town of Friedrichstadt, which is also affectionately known as “Little Amsterdam”. It is generously designed for 4-6 people. It is located directly on the inland harbor, from where you can paddle onto the canals or the Treene directly at the jetty in front of the door with two of the hotel’s own canoes and a SUP. Restaurants, cafés and quaint shops are right around the corner on the market square. The historic house, which was completely renovated, renovated to a high standard and lovingly furnished at the end of 2022, has a spacious living and dining room area on the ground floor. In the living room there is a very comfortable, pull-out sofa bed (140 x 200 cm with topper) where two people can sleep. The kitchen is well-equipped with a dishwasher, stove, oven, and all the common kitchen tools you need for cooking. The lower bathroom with shower room also leads from there.

House garden and environment

I like to open the house for guests and am – if on site – always happy to contact for tips and a good conversation.

Of course, I respect the privacy of my guests, just as I wish for myself. The center of attraction in the house is the hallway with high ceilings with the tiled stove. Here you will find a big dining table at which every one can meet but nobody is obliged to.

Dogs are very welcome and my happy pointer Kona is always keen to play with guest dogs. The garden behind the house is completely fenced and can be used by all our guests and dogs – of course without any guarantee as we do not know how deep your dog can dig or jump. On our fenced sheep meadow directly close to the parklike garden there are our two old and quite shy sheep – the skuddes Lisa and Joe and 8 Ouessant sheep (Penelope, Penny,Hanni & Nanni, Frieda, Aazadi, Poonam and Toddy) – the smallest sheep breed of the world. If your dog is a hunting dog please put him  on a towline in the garden, so that you can easily stop him from hunting so that none of our animals is harmed.

The garden is the jewel of the estate. It is 6.500 square meters big and edged by huge, old trees. There are six different garden characters. My guests are allowed to enter all gardens (except for the sheep meadow) to picnic, sleep, meditate or just look at water and the fields, observe birds in bushes and trees, and eventually spot deer, rabbits, pheasants or herons.

I feel this place is a place of power full of positive energy, and is close to tourist attractions, the Eider and the Wadden Sea. But beware dear city dwellers – you will live here next door to lovable farmers, who also like to mow at night and pick up the harvest – so it can sometimes be that you hear the sound of agricultural vehicles or sometimes our lawn mower or tractor. There are no pigs or chicken litter batteries in the neighborhood. Accordingly, there is no typical odor nuisance, or health hazard. All neighbors deliver their milk regionally to the Osthusumer Dairy in Witzwort, where there is also a nice farm shop with regional products.

Activities in the environment

Of course Eiderstedt is an El Dorado for water sports enthusiasts. In St. Peter-Ording the world championships in surfing take place. A great place to go swimming and there is a well a huge dogs beach! But you can do so much more at Eiderstedt: Go bikeriding, go on tracking tours, rent canoos and ride along the Eider or Treene, rise kites, go jogging, horseback riding or play golf and do great trips to the villages just next door such as Tönning, Friedrichstadt, Husum or many other attractions.

Die Gastgeberin Steffi Ortmann

Your host

I (Stefanie Sebelin) live with my husband and daughter, horses, dogs, chickens, and ducks in a farmhouse close to the Danish border. I love to travel though like yourself and discover new places and countries. I love to stay in bed & breakfasts rather in hotels as I believe that this is a more charming way to travel and meet new travelers and hosts at beautiful places. I love to spend my spare time in nature with our animals and truly love the countryside.

The environment

Warft Simmerdeis is located between Oldenswort und Witzwort, on the peninsula Eiderstedt, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.

Close by to  Friedrichstadt (9 minutes by car), Tönning (11 minutes by car), Husum (21 minutes by car),
St. Peter Ording (25 minutes by car) – beachlovers can enjoy the biggest beach of Europe  (12 km length and 2 km width).
Friedrichstadt is known through its dutch influence and better known as “little Amsterdam” with its charming dutch architecture and canals.

My favorite restaurant in the village right next door in Witzwort (8 minutes by car) is the “Rote Haubarg”, a historical farmhouse of the 17th century with its own museum, restaurant, café and outdoor terrace. Directly in Oldenswort you can visit the impressive mansion Herrenhaus Hoyerswort (anno 1594) where you can as well have a good piece of homemade cake and a great selection of teas and as well coffee and enjoy a beautiful dinner in the Brasserie – french style with Frisian accents. The restaurant is placed in one of the old stables. I love it here!

Means of transport

If you come here by train it makes most sense to travel to Friedrichstadt. From there it is only a 9 minute cab ride to Warft Simmerdeis. You should preorder the taxi at the taxi transport Blume & Claußen (+49-4881 500) to make sure that you will have a cab waiting for you by arrival.
