Hospitable warmth in a historic setting

Nestled in the beautiful undulating Limburg landscape in the Haspengouw region lies De Kerckhem Manor. The Courtyard’s tranquil atmosphere is soothing and relaxing. The coat-of-­arms above the front door refers to 1648 when the noble De Kerckhem Family restored the medieval farm house.

De Kerckhem´s kitchen has a fascinating origin. Tessa van Dam Merrett started off giving courses in flower arranging at the ground floor. Whilst doing that she developed a passion for cooking. When she got her cookery diploma, the studio was transformed into a full-fletched kitchen with an AGA-cooker. Tessa is a slow food follower and uses many ingredients from her own orchards, vegetable and herb gardens. The restaurant serves a ´table d´hote´: one menu for all guests.
