Welcome to the Nova Zembla Carriage House, a unique venue for a special occasion!
The Nova Zembla Carriage House recently officially opened as a new venue for conferences and events. Built in 1899, Nova Zembla was initially used as a carriage house, butler’s accommodation and stables for the Cremer family and their guests. In 1920, the stables were converted into apartments for the descendants of Jacob Theodoor Cremer. The Cremer family lived here during the cold winter months because it was difficult to keep the mansion heated. Until recently, Duin & Kruidberg Country Estate used the carriage house as a working area for the technical services and for office and storage space, but since the new office wing was opened to accommodate these functions, the Carriage House has been made fully available for our guests, and you are welcome to stay here for meetings, barbecues, inspiration sessions, team building activities and receptions.
The Garden room
The Cremer family used the Tuinkamer (garden room) as their living room during the harshest winter months. The room is furnished in a quiet, classical manner, and the original 1960s wallpaper has been preserved.
The Hearth room
The Haardkamer (hearth room) is a very cosy room where attention has been paid to the smallest detail. This period room has direct daylight, an original open fire place, and opens out onto to the garden of the Carriage House.
The Jachtkamer (hunting room) of the Coach House is a utilitarian room in which you will find all the elements of Mr Cremer’s hunting history.
This room, which used to accommodate the stables and carriages of the Cremer family, recently underwent full restoration to its industrial style.
