    Great location, easy to get to the dyke, the beaches, and the shops in town. Welcoming and friendly. Beautiful restoration with well appointed rooms.

    Very unique rooms, super friendly and helpful hosts. Delightful breakfast. We liked that the Smederij is close to a few restaurants and shops, but is in a very quiet place. Bike rental within walking distance.

    The breakfast was a great start to the day. Delicious. The added touches like bathrobes, slippers and loose leaf tea made us feel like very special guests. Our hosts gave us great Texel tips. Hospitality at its finest.

Company info

An introduction Welcome! We are Dionne and Sander, the proud owners of Smederij Texel Bed & Breakfast since October 2020. Running our own guesthouse is a dream come true for us. We virtually scoured town and country to find the right place, and it took a long journey through Europe to pin down our ultimate premises. We drove across Europe with our caravan to look at B&Bs, hotels and campsites to take over, but always found a reason not to do it. It was by pure coincidence that we ended up temporarily in De Cocksdorp on Texel and heard that the ‘Smederij Texel’ B&B was up for sale. Everything fell into place the moment we stepped inside – this is what we had looked for all this time! Our greatest wish is to pamper our guests and introduce them to another side of Texel. Far from the beaten path. We will be happy to help you in discovering the hidden gems of this beautiful island. We will be doing this with excursions we put together ourselves (in the near future), along with tips and ideas to suit the way you holiday. So don’t hesitate to ask us for suggestions, ideas and tips!

Property info

For a unique night’s sleep Do you relish heading off the beaten track? And are you open to a unique experience? Then come and stay at ‘Smederij Texel’, the Texel Forge! What we offer can’t be found anywhere else on Texel: a B&B where everything is different. With five unique rooms in fantastic surroundings, we make sure that you discover a very different Texel. Guest accommodation with its own character Nothing in our rooms is standard. No standard beds or dime-a-dozen furniture; the accommodation features interiors which have all been put together with care, where you will keep discovering new details. All done with love and attention to offer you a wonderful stay on the Netherlands’ most beautiful Wadden island. Filled with romance and adventure. Because there’s always something new to discover on Texel. Sing, walk, cycle, enjoy, laugh and admire!

Neighborhood info

Splendid location Smederij Texel Bed & Breakfast sits in a perfect spot in the island’s most northerly village, De Cocksdorp. Right in the heart of the central street, surrounded by beautiful buildings. And with some specialist shops and several restaurants in walking distance. Immediately from our B&B you can set off on a splendid walking route or head out on a fine bike ride. You’re at the Waddendijk within just a few hundred metres, looking out over the World-Heritage-designated Wadden Sea. The extensive Eierland dune area lies within a short distance, part of Texel’s National Park Dunes. The Texel lighthouse is already clearly visible. Particularly special is the wide beach behind the lighthouse, where the Wadden Sea and the North Sea meet. And worth mentioning: Texel is very dog-friendly; most places where you’re welcome, so is your dog. Prefer relaxing close to home? There are plenty of little nooks to settle into with a good book in the large garden behind our B&B. Perhaps in the old orchard or under the impressive walnut tree. We also have a heated garden house which you can use. Our garden is a beautiful paradise on Wadden Island Texel.
