Warft Simmerdeis im Sommer


Welcome to Eiderstedt

I live 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.

Simmerdeis am Hafen in Husum

My apartment Simmerdeis at the harbor in Husum impresses with the view from all windows directly onto the Husum inland harbor and the cute old town, which can be reached in 5 minutes on foot. Restaurants, cafes and shops are right on the doorstep.

The large and bright living room with floor-to-ceiling windows leads directly into the dining room area, which is connected to the kitchen. The balcony facing the water has beautiful evening sun and invites you to have a sundowner or just relax.

The special feature: The height on the second floor (without elevator) – guarantees you an incomparable view – but nobody can look into your window. The apartment is on the top floor and designed for a maximum of 4 people.

There is a bedroom with a bed (180 x 200 cm) for two people and the second balcony opens from here. The living room has a pull-out sofa bed (160cm x 200cm) for two more people, a cozy seating area and a smart TV. WiFi and bed linen are of course available for every guest.

The kitchen is well equipped with a dishwasher, oven and all common kitchen tools that you need for cooking.

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. The sheep share the meadow with our happy free running chicken, who also produce my breakfast eggs. The chicken believe that the whole property is their own, so they don’t respect borders or fences when running free. If your dog is a hunting dog and you know he’ll hunt the chicken for dinner, then please let me know and I will put them into the cage during your stay – or we will find the compromise that your dog is 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) in order to picknick, sleep, meditate or just to look at water and the fields, observe birds in bushes and trees and eventually spot deer, rabbits, pheasants or herons.

I feel this place as a place of power full of positive energy, are close to tourist attractions, the Eider and the Wadden Sea. But beware, dear city dwellers – we 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.

Your host

Text translation

I (Steffi Ortmann) live with my pointer Kona in my country house on the peninsula Eiderstedt in Oldenswort and I am your host and almost the whole time present. I love to travel though as 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 and live the differences between Oldenswort and the city life of Hamburg where my friends and family live. It is just 1,5 hours away from here, so its a quick travel back and forth. Here in Oldenswort I love to spend my spare time in nature and my gardens and I just love it here. That’s what I want to introduce to you – this is a beautiful place and I 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 minnten 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.

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.
