Everyone who has been to Texel has undoubtedly seen them: schapenboeten. A 'boet' is the West-Frisian word for barn or shed. Back in the day these small buildings were used as a storage space for hay and acted as shelter for sheep. Because the wind on Texel blows mainly from the south-west, nearly all schapenboeten are built with their doors facing north-east. This would allow sheep to shelter from the wind in the lee of the sheds and for loose hay to be brought in without blowing away.
One of these schapenboeten has been renovated and made available to Hotel De Pelikaan to host meetings, seminars, courses, wedding receptions and parties. It is a unique and traditional Texel location for 8 to 40 people with all the necessary facilities. Microphones and overhead projectors are available for hire.
