About Helena Hoeve
We are Wim Uijttewaal en Angelique van Duijn. Together with our children, Siri, Mara and Jeb, we live at farm Helena Hoeve. Wim’s father, Wim Uijttewaal lives also in the farmhouse, the ancestral home of Wim Jr. and Wim Sr.
Born and raised in Schalkwijk we know how wonderful it is to live here and enjoy the unique location in the charming village.
Take pleasure in the freedom of the countryside while the city of Utrecht is is nearby.
As from March 2011 we rent three holiday apartments, each suitable for two people. The apartments are fully self-supporting and therefore suitable as a holiday. But the cottages are also for business as’ by-the-week home very attractive for a longer period to inhabit. The local supermarket is 100m away from the apartments.

The farm Helena Hoeve was built in 1883 Hendrik Uijttewaal and Lamberta de Wit, our on-grandparents, were the first residents. Now, 125 years later, the farm still belongs to the family. The ‘bakhuis’ next to the farm is even older than the farm, the exact year is unknown. The ‘bakhuis’ was used as a summer house , the farm was then cleaned.
In earlier years the Helena Hoeve was a mixed farm with vegetables, pigs, cows and chickens. Until 1999, Helena Hoeve was an active dairy farm. In earlier years was a mixed farm with vegetables, pigs, cows and chickens. The last 20 years there were only cows. Since we stopped milking cows, we are running a number of 50 beef cattle (Blonde d’Aquitaine) in the meadow.
