The Peperstraat is one of the oldest streets in Gouda. The Bed&Breakfast is part of a building that has been their since approximately 1460. The Peperstraat is actually a canal but typically with houses on only one side. On the other side one finds little bridges leading to the backgardens of the rich burgherhouses on the banks of the river Gouwe which gives Gouda it's name.
Until 2011 the house on Peperstraat 76 was one of the sites anyone visiting Gouda had to see. It was the workshop of the famous potter Adri Moerings. Besides colorfull pottery he was the last remaining baker who made the famous clay pipes for which Gouda was renowned in the 17th century. When he retired the workshop became dance studio Ka-motion.
The 16th century cottage in the garden was once shop and storage of potter Adri Moerings. It has been converted in a romantic and comfortable apartment. All the old wood and beams have been restored and the charming angles maintained to keep the historic feel. Sunlight lures you out of bed with a view over the city garden and adjoining houses.
