The Owl Tower.

Landgoed Beijlshof is an estate around the Beijlshof farm and consists of an alternation of woods, meadows and agricultural land. The name Beijlshof surfaced as early as 1500. Jacob, Earl of Horn was the owner. The Bedelaar estate is a small estate that was bought piece by piece by Professor Eugène Dubois from 1906 onwards. He wanted to transform the estate (38 ha) into a landscape in which nature could take its course. In 1937 he had a fifteen meter high stone tower built, the Owl Tower. The estate gets its somewhat curious name from a legend. Once a castle was said to have stood here, one evening a beggar came by, who, however, was shown the door in an extremely harsh manner. The beggar then cursed the house and its inhabitants. Now when the tower clock struck 12 o'clock in the morning, the castle and its inhabitants sank into the swamp. The Haelense Beek is one of the brooks that flows into the Tungelroyse Beek, which is called Leudal Leubeek in the nature reserve. The stream valley of the Haelense Beek borders the Exaten Estate with a striking farmhouse on the edge. Stockxhof, a 17th century farmhouse with an old orchard. At the farm you have a beautiful view over the brook valley with the meandering brook.
