It is wonderful to cycle through the Achterhoek countryside around Lochem. You will find plenty of peace, space and natural beauty here. You will also pass some country houses and the Staring Dome.

Estates
From the parking lot you soon enter the Beekvliet, a characteristic Achterhoek estate that consists of a mosaic of farmland, deciduous and coniferous forest, impressive avenues of trees and wooded banks. The Zwiepse Molen is a flour mill from 1851. At Restaurant & Speelerij De Witte Wieven you can enjoy a tasty stopover. Further on you pass the estate where the House Ampsen is located. The history of this building goes back to 1105.

Great Field
Just before you cross the Twente Canal again, you can take a look at Huize't Ross. A little later you drive along the idyllic banks of the Berkel to the Staring Dome, a tea house from 1850 that was built for the daughter of the famous poet Staring. In the woods of the Het Grote Veld nature reserve, the kilometers seem to pass by themselves, while you drive between the fragrant pine trees.

Huis Ampsen

Kasteel Ampsen
7241NG Lochem

The history of this stately castle dates back to 1105. The first castle and both houses on the estate were destroyed in 1605 by the Spaniards. The current house was rebuilt in the first half of the seventeenth century. The castle and the estate are privately owned and therefore not accessible.

Huize 't Ross

't Ross 14
7245 NK Lochem

Huize 't Ross is located in the quiet and green area between Laren and Lochem. It cannot be said with certainty, but this country estate was probably founded in 1700 by the Dumbar family from Deventer. This family was of Scottish descent, which may explain the name of this mansion. Ross is the name of a county in Scotland. The house was rebuilt in 1867 and in 1890 an upper floor was built on top of the former house. At the beginning of the 20th century, the manor and the land around it were sold. A large part of the forests were also cleared.
