The core of House De Corenbloem is late medieval. In the 18th century it was refurbished for the first time. The guest drawing-room for example is partly rococo and partly Louis XVI. Around 1810 the house obtained its neo-classical character with a spacious empire room and a stately vestibule. Everything has been carefully preserved from the old doors to the original floorboards and mantelpieces. It is not the first time that Dirk and Hilde Verbeke, who love old buildings and live in De Corenbloem , have restored a house. Earlier they restored Bloemendale Castle. The restoration of De Corenbloem lasted for over two years and was done with a lot of artisanal craftsmanship.
Refurbishing this monument is like writing a story. The restoration was done very respectfully. The entire interior has been redecorated and repainted based on traces found of the original decoration and colour palette. Because the Gustav style inspired the original decoration and colours, it has become the leading inspiration. The colour shades of the North Sea match the regional neo-classicism perfectly. The house has been furnished with authentic 18th century furniture. The staircase in the monumental vestibule leads you to the Swedish room, the Rocaille room and the Empire suite. The hall on the groundfloor gives access to the fourth room: the Peer Gynt suite.
The garden is surrounded by high age-old walls still betraying the traces of medieval buildings.
Hilde and Dirk love rare plants which they bring from all over the world. They call this their ‘botanic cloister garden’. Lots of special plants can be admired here.
In the garden you can hear the warm ringing of the bells of Bruges. Otherwise there is silence.
The conservatory is built of steel and glass. It is an early 19th century design. Weather allowing, breakfast is served here.
At De Corenbloem breakfast is the festive start of the day. Breakfast is served in the stylish dining-room accompanied by a burning open fire.
If the weather is fine, breakfast is served in the conservatory. You are welcome between 8.30am and 11am. Everyone has their own place.
The breakfast, buffet-style, consists of rolls, croissants, different kinds of cheese and assorted cold meats, delicious jams, yoghurt and fresh fruit.
We serve fresh fruit juice, hot drinks, eggs and a breakfast dessert at the table.
