The province is mainly agricultural and is located in the north of the Netherlands. The village is on the edge of a large water sports area. (the house is on swimming, fishing and waterways). The most important farms in the village are yacht yards and water sports and outside the village the dairy farms.
 South-west of the village lies an area with many cycle paths in a landscape where forests are interspersed with grassland. Here are also some touristically interesting villages such as Hindelopen and Workum.

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

Woudsend is primarily a water sports village. Rent a sloop and go exploring in the area. Balk is a great place to do your shopping (you can moor in front of the supermarket) and is less than 1 hour away. Langweer, Sneek and Workum are a 1.5-hour boat ride away. The village of Woudsend has experienced a poor period without renewal, so that the old structure of small streets and alleys has been preserved.
In our village there is a sawmill that is kept in operation by volunteers during the weekends.
A 2nd windmill is used to make organic flour for sale.
Nearby are picturesque villages such as Hindelopen or Workum where the old center has been preserved. In Heerenveen is the "Oranjewoud" museum in a park-like setting.
The Frisian museum in Leeuwarden and the museum in Groningen have changing exhibitions with accessible modern art. The buildings in Heerenveen and Groningen in particular are architecturally successful.
