Westhove Castle - Oostkapelle

N 51.5697723 / E 3.5217607

Westhove was owned by the Abbey of Middelburg in 1277. It is unknown how old the castle is. The Norbertines always lease the castle to others. Among the tenants is also the influential Philips van Borssele. Westhove is set on fire by the insurgents during the Eighty Years' War. In the 17th century, Jacob Boreel and his son Willem respectively are the owners. In 1799, his wife's niece inherited the country estate. This Wilhelmina C. van den Brande married Adriaan C.C. Slicher and they build the large water feature. Jacques Phoenix Boddaert sells Westhove to his sister Elisabeth C. Boddaer, who turned it into a convalescent home. A Stayokay hostel is now located in the castle.
