David Watts from Boland Groundbaits recently returned from a visit to Holland, where he stayed in the accommodation at De Groot Vliet and says:

There is a very good tackle shop in Weverershoof, only 2km from the accommodation, it is very well stocked and sells fresh baits (maggots, casters worms etc.) and also frozen dead baits for pike fishing. The guys in the shop will give you a local map and point you in the right direction of where to fish etc.
The accommodation was 1st class, with everything you need for a self-catering holiday. There's a nice area to sit outside, television if required and parking. On site at the back of the chalets is a vast lake that I fished, after pre-baiting and caught well, it is easily accessible and I fished from the platforms.
I also fished a canal, about 1km from the digs and I parked behind my peg and had 136lb of fish that day in about 6hrs fishing.
There are a number of restaurants in the town and a hotel about 500 metres from the digs that serves food every night. There is also a cafe on sight selling food and coffee.
Overall my impression of the area was very good for people wanting a nice quite break with plenty of very good, easily accessible fishing locations. There is also a Carp lake on site, but I never got to fish it, but witnessed other anglers catching Double Figure Carp!
