Leiden, South Holland Province
Houseboat Pride of Leyden is fully equipped with every comfort, from a well stocked kitchen, to central heating and air conditioning, a TV and Wifi internet, and a veranda with a spectacular view. The main bedroom sleeps two in a king-size bed, the study sleeps one on a sofa bed.

The houseboat is moored in the Nieuwe Rijn, on the edge of Leiden's centre. It is a very picturesque part of Leiden, with a view of a drawbridge, period style street lamps and typical Dutch style houses. A short walk takes you to one of Holland's largest shopping areas. And just around the corner are a restaurant and a supermarket. There is good parking (on street, paid from 2 January 2016) and you're only 5 minutes away from the motorway. Leiden train station is on both the intercity network and the night train network, so trains run frequently and...

Interaction with guests
Please let me know how you will be travelling to Leiden (e.g. by train or car) and I will send you the appropriate directions. When you phone me 10 minutes ahead of arrival, I will meet you at the boat to hand over the keys and show you around.

If possible I will pick you up from the railway station. However, since I drive a van I have room for only two passengers.

There is a Welcome Book with a host of suggestions and things worth knowing. But whenever you need something or have a question, you can phone or email me. I am only 5 minutes away.

It was love at first sight which turned out to be truly comfortable and a Dutch treat delight. Stayed as a family of three, myself, husband and our twelve year old son. Everything was extremely smooth, we met lovely Jacqueline as arranged in front of the houseboat where she reviewed everything and handed us the keys to our home away...

Very friendly owner. Very roomy houseboat and a good location. Thank you for the well stocked cupboard and fridge. Loved the visit from the Coots every day. Enjoyed feeding them.

About the neighbourhood
Leiden is a market town, whose market has been in existence for more than 900 years. Its university recently had its 430th anniversary. Countless museums bear witness to Leiden’s important role in Holland’s history. It is the birth place of Rembrandt van Rijn, who was named after the river Rhine which flows through Leiden and in which the Pride of Leyden is moored. At the same time, Leiden is very much a modern town. It is great for shopping and eating out. As it’s quite compact, all features can easily be reached on foot. You can stroll through the historic cobblestoned centre, visit one of the museums or take a drink on one of the floating terraces.
Getting around
Leiden is a very compact town, that can easily be explored on foot. That said, there are six different bus lines that run from Pride of Leyden through the centre to the railway station. Bicycles can be rented from several shops in town and a car rental is just around the corner.

All major cities are easily accessible from Leiden, e.g. Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Utrecht are each approx. 40 minutes away by train, The Hague is a mere 20 minutes away. And the A4 motorway is only a 5 minute drive from the boat.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Schiphol Amsterdam Airport: 25.0 km

Ferry: Hook of Holland (Hoek van Holland): 40.0 km
Leiden is easily accessible by car, train and even bicycle. From the railway station you can take either a bus (six lines run past the boat) or a taxi. But whenever possible I will pick you up from the railway station. However, my van can only carry two passengers.
