About us

The Sleutelhuys literally means ‘key-house’. It aims at being a place where you can celebrate ‘key’ moments in life but also where you can work on business incentives. Or maybe our holiday home can show you the key to de-stressing.

In our home – that is on the list of valuable heritage – past and present meet. Dating back to the eighteenth century, the former bailiff’s house has been carefully rebuilt and refurbished in accordance with its historical character. Although the Sleutelhuys is in the midst of the city centre, it still is an oasis of rest. The walled garden with its old impressive chestnut tree largely contributes to its peacefulness.

The Sleutelhuys is also an ideal starting point to discover the Hinterland of Bruges or the Lys Valley. Cultural heritage cities like Bruges, Ghent or Courtray are quite close by. Tielt itself is a charming provincial town with an interesting historical city centre. Nature enthusiasts will discover Tielt to be an excellent location for all such activities. Quite some hiking and cycling routes start from here and the Poelbergsite and Meikensbossen will enchant you.

The Sleutelhuys is a multi-purpose residence where you can spend an enjoyable holiday (alone or in group), or where you’ll find a comfortable stay in one of our city apartments for leisure purposes or during a longer period while on business trip. Where you can have a party in an exquisite surrounding or organize a seminar or business meeting. Breakfast and other catering can be provided on request; for this we count on a selection of carefully chosen partners.

The Sleutelhuys … for all those ‘key’ moments in life!
