You are in the yard of a former arable farm on the edge of the Wieringermeer polder. The Wieringermeerpolder is the first Zuiderzeepolder which dried up in 1930.
On the other side of the adjacent dike is the greeting polder. At about 1.5 kilometers you can visit the former fishing village of Kolhorn. If you go further west, you will find the pleasant regional town of Schagen at 7 kilometers with its many amenities, catering and shopping area. When you continue through the extensive bulb fields, you will arrive in the North Sea coastal town of Callantsoog.
Towards the east you can visit the old Zuiderzee town of Medemblik, or go and eat some fish in the harbor of den Oever. Between these two places, the extensive Robbenoord and Dijkgatsbos are worth a brisk walk.

We are Coen and Margriet Knook and were born and raised in the Wieringermeer. We like to tell you everything about the area where you are now a guest. We live and work at the Marnic Hoeve. The name of our farm was given by grandpa knook to the farm that he was allowed to lease from the Rijksdienst voor IJsselmeerpolders in 1938. The name is a name after the first names of grandpa and grandma knook, but also a reference to the Latin word Maritime and the Greek word Nicola. In other words, “conquered from the sea”.
We are constantly working on beautifying our living and working place for ourselves but also for you as a guest. But if you have any ideas or tips, we'd love to hear from you.
For example, just two kilometers away, the former Zuiderzee village of Kolhorn is worth a visit. In Kolhorn you will find the Historical Museum De Turfschuur where you can learn more about the history of the former Zuiderzee village. The museum is open on Saturdays and Sundays or by appointment. You can also sail on Sunday with the only remaining anchovy, the KH44.
Prefer to do something within walking distance? The West Frisian lock is only 500 meters from the Marnic Hoeve: it connects the Wieringermeerpolder with the Groetpolder with a drop of 5 meters. Here you can see how special the polder landscape is. From April to October, a lock keeper is available every day to answer all your questions.
