Going Dutch is a pleasant surprise

Beaches don’t immediately spring to mind when thinking of the Netherlands but the Rawlings family were delighted to discover superb, long sandy stretches during a short break in this fascinating, friendly country. 

After jumping on the overnight ferry from Harwich to Hook of Holland they also enjoyed: 

  • Exploring the city of Leiden
  • Cycling along the banks of canals
  • Visiting a medieval castle
  • A bike tour of ancient underground mines
  • Hurtling downhill on a toboggan
  • A day in Amsterdam
